Prom night is a biggie these days, with students celebrating the end of their school days and the beginning of whatever the hell they want to do with their lives.

Typically, the occasion is celebrated with fancy outfits, lots of pictures and a lift in a limousine.

However, some LADs in Daventry, Northamptonshire, UK, hadn’t sorted any transport with just a couple of days left before the big night – so they took matters into their own hands.

The idea was born when Lewis Elkins was given a kart by one of his neighbours, before going to seeToy Story 4the following day.

The 16-year-old is ‘not a huge fan’ of the film, however, it did help to inspire his showstopping arrival at the Parker E-ACT Academy prom.

With only a matter of days ’til the event, Lewis set about converting his recently gifted kart into his very own RC – aka the kart fromToy Story.

Lewis began pimping his ride on the Wednesday, with assistance from pals Isaac Parkinson, Jack Hancock and Sammy Lockwood. The fellas spent the next two days working on the kart, right up until the evening of the prom on Friday, creating the bodywork, ensuring it could carry two passengers and printing off aToy Storyplate for the front (just in case anyone wasn’t sure what the hell it was supposed to be).

The LADs kept their grand entrance plans secret and Lewis said the project went ‘smoothly’, with his dad moving the homemade RC to the top of a nearby hill before he and Isaac rode to a hero’s welcome.

Speaking to LADbible, he said: “We decided with three days before prom to do something different after being gifted a go-kart by my neighbour.

“The building process went smoothly especially with very little planning and only three days to build.

“We keep it a secret and when we came down everyone was cheering and recording.”

To infinity… and the prom, you might say; top effort LADs.

However, you would be a fool if you thought this was the first time a bunch of young whippersnappers had concocted a novel prom transport plan.

Just this year in fact, four LADs from Ashlyns School in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, rocked up to their prom in a DIY recreation of the car fromThe Inbetweeners.

Louis Priggen, Josh Wrathall, Josh Gilbert, Brian Sussum, all 16, also kept their project secret, before delighting classmates as one of their dad’s chauffeured them to the prom in the distinctive ride.

I think I speak for all of us when I say, it beats being a bus w*****.
