He’s taking the art of the prom proposal into a new register.

Whippany, N.J., teen Derek enlisted the help of his doo-wop quartet, the Whiptones, to ask his friend Gina to prom. Derek and the Whiptones (catchy name) surprised Gina at a restaurant, and the result is pretty adorable.

The Whiptones performed a version of the Cadillacs’ “My Girlfriend” – albeit with some personally tailored lyrics – to woo Gina. Naturally, she said yes, because how could you not?

The enterprising group write on their YouTube channel that they’re “now available to be hired as ‘Whiptones Wingmen.’” “Want to ask that special someone an important question but just not sure how? When it’s too important to not hear NO, don’t go it alone, use The Whiptones!”
