Shaedon Wedel made headlines last month after he asked his 15-year-old friend Carlie Wittman with Down syndrome to prom with a Doritos-themed proposal.

The couple became so famous, in fact, that the snack company got wind of the event and offered to bring Shaedon and Carlie to prom in style.

The Kansas teens were given a helicopter ride to dinner before being flown over to the dance with all of their classmates cheering upon their arrival.

18-year-old Shaedon had originally popped the question using a custom-made Doritos tee shirt featuring a pun-tastic caption.

The front of the shirt read: “I know I may be NACHO typical Dorito but…”. On the back of the shirt, the words continued to say: “… I’m going to be CHEESY and ask: Will you go to prom with me?”

Well, it may have been a cheesy proposal, but the results were absolutely delicious.
