It all started with a fangirl crush. Mimi Dickerson, a high school student in Gulf Shores, AL wrote Marcus Johns on Twitter and extended a deal: if she got 100,000 retweets, would he take her to prom?
Marcus’ response: “yeah, sure whatever. You get 100,000 retweets I’ll take you to prom.” In less than 24 hours, Mimi’s post had 30,000 retweets. Then fellow Vine star, and friend of Marcus Johns, Cameron Dallas got involved. He retweeted the deal and over the course of another 24 hours, it was a done deal. 100,000 retweets were signed, sealed and delivered. Suddenly Marcus found himself having to live up to an odd situation: going BACK to prom. That all went down a month and a half ago. The actual prom was this past weekend — and true to his word, Marcus showed up with Mimi on his arm.
Marcus had a great time. And presumably, Mimi has a memory that will last a lifetime.
