These days, fans can connect with their idols in ways not possible just a few years ago. Take Nicole of Coral Gables, Florida, for example. Like so many other high school seniors around the country, she’s obsessed with NBA star Dwyane Wade.

Just for fun, she asked the Dwyane on Twitter if he would go out with her to prom. She never though that months later she would actually meet Dwyane at prom, and star in a viral video.  

Since debuting over the weekend, the new video has already scooped up over 1.75 million views, and has appeared on SportsIllustrated, Mashable, CBSNews, and YahooSports
