Paris Hilton Date Request Written in the Heavens

An anonymous suitor combined two things we kind of miss from the early aughts: successful rom-com dating tactics and a love of Paris Hilton. This guy chose to ask the sometimes-relevant celebutante on a date ... via sky banner. Because really, when it comes to asking out a celebrity, why make a lame YouTube video when you can employ all the airspace over Malibu? All afternoon, planes flew back and forth with two banners that read "I Can't Get Paris Whitney Hilton Out Of My Mind"  and "Mr. & Mrs. Hilton, May I Court Your Daughter Paris?" Look everyone, chivalry isn't dead — though evidently, sanity is.
