Doritos 'Promposal' Couple Gets an Epic Surprise on Prom Night

If you have been paying attention to adorable viral videos lately, then you are surely familiar with the epic “promposal” that involved a bag of Doritos. To refresh your memory, Shaedon Wedel of Newtown, Kansas, asked his best friend’s little sister, Carlie Wittman, to prom. But since Carlie is such a huge Doritos fan, Shaedon showed up at the teen’s door with flowers, a bag of Doritos, and wearing the cutest shirt which read: “I know I’m NACHO typical Dorito but …” (on the front) and “I’m going to be CHEESY and ask: will you go to prom with me?” (on the back).

Shaedon posted his “promposal” video on his Facebook page:

I have a Prom date with one of the sweetest gals out there!

Carlie, who has Down Syndrome, was not only surprised, but extremely excited to accept Shaedon’s “promposal.” The couple’s prom night finally arrived, and Doritos made sure that it was epic and memorable for them.

According to Babble:

[Doritos] thought it would be cute to surprise the couple on prom night, and even tweeted a teaser photo as to what Carlie could possibly expect: an image of a red carpet leading up to a helicopter.

Hmm … what could they have been planning?

It turns out, the good folks at Doritos were so moved by the sweetness of Shaedon Wedel that they decided to up the ante by providing a once in a lifetime, amazing experience — they provided not just one, but two helicopters to bring the friends to the prom in style.

Carlie was decked out in a beautiful, sparkly, pale green dress, and her awesome date completed her look with a corsage. Shaedon talked to KWCH 12 about the evening:

“This is absolutely amazing, this is so cool, such a cool experience. Especially to do it with her though: to be able to have her this happy, it’s all I wanted.”

Everyone needs a friend as thoughtful as Shaedon is to Carlie — and it’s clear he cares for her deeply.

“I didn’t do it for the publicity and stuff, I did it to make her happy,” he told reporters last month, shortly after going viral. “She deserves a lot.”
