People Just Can't Figure Out WTF This Teen's Promposal Sign Says

"That sunken place got brah talking funny."

Posted on

Marlen Williams, a teenager from Texas, recently uploaded to Twitter some photos of his ~promposal~ with a cute, basketball-themed sign.

Marlen presented the sign, which appears to read: "You'll run the 1, I'll be 2. I'd love to take a shot at prom with you," to a female friend with a small toy basketball.

But as sweet as the concept was, it had a lot of people confused by what exactly his sign said.

@_lord_darkskin_ You'll run the I'll be 1 I'd love to take 2 a shot at prom #12 with you

@_lord_darkskin_ Was staring at this shit for 5 minutes

Some tried their hand at interpreting Williams’ super-confusing sign.

@Mmarissaluna @_lord_darkskin_ You'll be the 1, I'll be the 2. I'd love to take a shot at prom with you

@bryana_salinas @rgrhz @Mmarissaluna @_lord_darkskin_ You'll be the 1 I'll run 2, I'd love to ...

With others going so far as to edit the sign to help people understand.

All of it had people questioning how some even got close to those conclusions.

@rgrhz @fredgnar @_ginero @bryana_salinas @Mmarissaluna @_lord_darkskin_ Be and the aren't even close to each other wtf.

@Jopara5 @_lord_darkskin_ Where are y'all finding the second "the" though?πŸ€”

This person thought Marlen would be better off with a more straightforward approach.

@_lord_darkskin_ Sometimes it's best to just stick to "will you go to prom with me"

And this one thought it wasn't really his fault at all.

@_lord_darkskin_ That sunken place got brah talking funny

But at the end of the day Marlen's date still said yes, so I guess the sign did its job.

@_lord_darkskin_ Lmao she just saw prom and said yes πŸ’€πŸ˜‚

@_lord_darkskin_ At least she understood it 😌
