In case you missed it, Jacob channeled Ryan Gosling in a La La Land-themed video that went viral. Now he’s talking about it on Good Morning America.
“The initial inspiration was a kid that went to my school about two or three years ago, he actually ‘promposed’ to Miley Cyrus and that just gave me a big inspiration,” Jacob said. “I thought I had to follow it up, and after seeing Emma Stone in La La Land, absolutely killing it in her performance… and especially knowing that she’s from Arizona, I thought it would just be a perfect idea.”
And Emma wrote him a letter in response!
“I have and I have the letter right here,” he said, reading it: “Thanks for making the greatest proposal I’ve ever received. I can’t tell you what an honor that was and how much I smiled throughout that beautifully orchestrated video. I’m in London working, but I hope you have the best time at prom and I’m grateful you thought of me. Thank you and P.S., I do see Gosling around the eyes. Love, Emma.”
