What do you do when everyone in your year is going to prom but your boyfriend lives on the other side of the world?
Dress up as a sloth and hide in all the prom photos.
That’s what 18-year-old Brianna from South Carolina decided to do, and the photos were hilarious, including her climbing up trees and generally frolicking in the background of the glamorous shots.
Speaking to UNILAD, Brianna’s proud brother Cameron said:
So my sister’s boyfriend in Amsterdam actually got the sloth costume for her as a gift. He said that’s she’s really lazy but at the same time knows a lot of facts about sloths. Plus she thinks they’re cute.
She got a lot of weird looks from the people who didn’t know her from the other schools but her friends thought it was funny so she was having a fun time and wasn’t letting them put her in a funk.
I personally thought her photobombing people’s prom pictures in a sloth costume was an original and really comical way of handling her prom date being across the world.
She went to his senior prom and considered it her own last year so this year she had no problem with just having a good time and participating in prom pictures. Just as a sloth.
She could have been in a funk but she wasn’t, and that’s why I love my little sis. The response on Twitter was interesting to see how it spread so fast in those two days and how there was the ones who would @ their girlfriends saying something like ‘omg we should’ve done this!!’ then the ones who were calling her weird.
Cameron posted the photos to Twitter captioned ‘My sister isn’t attending prom because her boyfriend lives in Amsterdam. She decided to dress up like a sloth and photobomb everyone else’s pictures’, and received 291 likes.
One commenter made a great sloth joke, saying she ‘should have gone, in costume. Even if some brave soul asked her to dance, by the time she made it to the floor prom would have been two weeks ago’.
Speaking to UNILAD, Brianna said:
The day was very hectic since I was helping everyone else get ready for prom and did peoples hair and makeup. The picture part was funny since they had me put it on a couple of times and pretended to push me down and stuff.
The fact that the pictures are gaining popularity on Twitter is just really funny to me because it was just a casual thing I did to goof off with my friends, I didn’t think other people would get such a kick out of it.
Apparently Brianna didn’t know her photos has become popular on Twitter, but when Cameron told her she hilariously said ‘just hit me when Ellen calls’.
Everyone has a Brianna inside them, and we should all let it out more.
