Alexandrea Clark was casket sharp and KILLED them at the prom. At least that’s what she was trying to do when she rolled up for her prom-dress reveal in an actual casket!
The Georgia teen stunted on her friends in a major way by pulling up on the scene in a hearse and inside a real casket, reports 11Alive.
It’s usually the handsome date on a girl’s arm that catches the oohs and aahs of onlookers, but instead, Clark’s morbid prom accessory was the talk of the town. A video of the reveal went viral.
“I was shocked,” Clark told 11Alive News over Skype Monday. “I didn’t know that it was going to go that viral.”
Clark boldly rode from a local funeral home to Americus Sumter High School on Saturday for her prom. The senior said she spends time at the West Mortuary learning about the business.
“I started volunteering with the funeral home, and I started liking it,” Clark said.
While surely Clark wanted all eyes on her as she pulled up in hearse, but she said there was an underlying message to her grave grand entrance. She wanted to show classmates how drinking and driving on prom night could result in them ending up in a casket permanently.
“I was thinking about my class and how they are going to prom and doing the bad stuff after prom; like having drugs and doing all that,” she said.
Clark was dead on with her choice since she wants to be a funeral director. But Clark knows that death is not a laughing matter and said she hopes her style choice wasn’t offensive.
“This is just what I do, and this is my career that I plan on doing and I love what I do,” she explained. “I love being around people and helping others. And it’s not to disrespect anybody.”
Clark plans to attend the Ogeechee Technical College in the Fall. And while many on social media condemned her for the usual prom entrance, she’s already received internship offers from funeral directors across Georgia.
