Last month, a Pennsylvania high school student made headlines after she toted a life-size cardboard cutout of New Jersey's own Danny DeVito to her prom. Now, DeVito has returned the favor.
As Rob McElhenney tweeted Monday, a cardboard cutout of Carlisle High School student Allison Closs, 17, made its way to the set of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which is preparing to enter its 13th season. Closs previously told PennLive she was "having trouble finding a date" to the dance, and settled on DeVito's cardboard visage as her arm candy.
"Hey Allison — I heard you took cardboard Danny to prom. What a coincidence. He took cardboard Allison to Paddy's…" McElhenney wrote on Instagram of the teen's "appearance" on set. An accompanying image showed DeVito posing with her cutout.
Closs responded online that she was "shooketh" by her cardboard self's set visit. Previously, she told PennLive that she hoped to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres Show thanks to the stunt, but would "settle for a nice tweet."
Closs' mock date with DeVito last month went viral online, eventually catching the attention of the official It's Always Sunny Twitter account. As the account tweeted, "Frank > any other date."
