A girl brought a cardboard cutout of Danny DeVito to prom, and the actor responded in the best way possible.
Allison Closs needed a date for prom, and as a Philly native and fan of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, she decided Danny DeVito, or at least his likeness, would be the perfect companion.
It was "a night I'll never forget," Closs said, as she posted photos of herself and the cutout at prom on Instagram. She and the cutout shared some goofy moments in a photobooth.
The cast of the show caught wind of it, and DeVito returned the favor by bringing a cardboard cutout of Closs onto the set of Always Sunny. DeVito plays Frank Reynolds, a rich and mischievous former real estate titan who owns a dumpy bar in Philly with his two kids and their friends. The bar, Paddy's Pub, pretty much exists as a means for the characters to get drunk and hash out get-rich-quick schemes.
"Hey Allison- I heard you took cardboard Danny to Prom. What a coincidence. He took cardboard Allison to Paddy's," star Rob McElhenney said. He shared a picture of DeVito with a cutout of Closs on the set of Paddy's.
Closs tweeted back at McElhenney, clearly elated saying "I am shooketh."

She also expressed her thanks to the cast for noticing what she did.

A local news station reached out to Closs for permission to share her story, to which of course she happily obliged.
