For Miley Cyrus, in the following video, the foam finger is on the other hand.

"I have been a fan of yours from the beginning," Peterson wrote along with the video. "You've changed my life, and I want to repay you by giving you the best night of your life."

This isn't the first time a young man has asked a famous female to be his prom date.
