High school junior brings 'Bieber' to prom

GLASSBORO, N.J., June 3 (UPI) -- A New Jersey high school student says he took Justin Bieber to the prom without the pop star even knowing -- as a cardboard cutout.

Glassboro High School junior Leon Purvis brought a life-sized cardboard cutout of Bieber as his "bro date" to prom Saturday, the Gloucester County Times, Woodbury, N.J., reported.

Almost a year ago, Purvis, 16, made a YouTube video in which he asked the world famous performer to accompany him to his junior prom as a "bro." The video received more than 140,000 views, but Bieber never replied.

"I had to do something to show that I have a sense of humor," Puvis said.

So, on Saturday, Purvis arrived at prom with his actual date, Kaitlyn Wright, a junior from Belmar, and the Bieber cutout.

Fellow students cheered him on, yelling "I told you he'd come" as Leon walked throughout the school with the faux Bieber.

"I thought he was brave for doing it," said junior Tony Colon. "I knew Leon was going to do something crazy."

Purvis said he was satisfied with his night overall.

"Hey, I brought Justin Bieber to prom. Never say never," said Leon, quoting Bieber's famous hit single.
