Danville Teacher Asks Will Ferrell to Prom
NBC Bay Area ^ | Thursday, Mar 6, 2014

An East Bay teacher is asking actor and comedian Will Ferrell to be his "date" at his school's upcoming prom.

Chad Cochran, who teaches at San Ramon Valley High School in Danville, posted a YouTube video pleading to Ferrell to join him at the campus' senior ball.

"I am asking you, Will Ferrell, will you please chaperone the senior ball with me?" Cochran asks in the video.

The teacher follows up by saying he is happily married with two children and two dogs. His wife, however, won't be able to attend prom.

Why should Ferrell accept the educator's offer? Cochran has plenty of reasons.

"There's a chocolate fountain," he says in the video. " We can ride on a school bus all the way there with a bunch of teenagers."

Cochran also promises to buy Ferrell a boutonniere from a chain grocery store.

The video was posted on Monday. By late Wednesday it was working its way toward 3,000 views.

San Ramon Valley High School's senior ball is scheduled for May 10 in San Francisco.

If Ferrell accepts Cochran's offer, the teacher said he will wear a black suit and a tie that will match the boutonniere.

Last month, a California teen reached out to Olympic figure skater Gracie Gold in a YouTube video. Like Cochran, the teen was in need of a prom date.

Sounds like a First Family we’re all familiar with. They try not to travel together, too. ;)

Idiocracy in action. In better times Will Farrell would have been the village idiot.

This is getting out of hand. If I were a celebrity being publicly pressured to go on a homosexual date, I’d go there, and kick his ass all over that town.

it’s a GUY.....so weird!

I can’t stand Will Farrell - won’t watch anything with him in it. Always get the feeling he’s an arrogant _rick.

IMO, Will Ferrell is among the least funny “comedians”. The guy’s whole schtick is to act like an adolecent retard from junior high school. That’s it. And it isn’t funny.

So, the nuclear family was BS, then? Not surprising.

Did you know that they are in the process of redefining “female.”

Instead of Farrell maybe he would have better luck if he invited Obama (giggle).

Puzzled why he didn’t ask one of the SNL women; maybe he fears his wife’s wrath!
