Chris Burwell's one true love is 'Super Smash Bros. Melee,' so why wouldn't he take the game to his senior prom?

The California teen tells New York Magazine that he's a huge fan of the 2001 Nintendo Game Cube game, and he thought taking the disc as his date would be funny.

"I’m a big fan of the game. There’s a big fan base for Super Smash Bros. Melee specifically, and I’ve been a fan of the game for a long time. I saw a couple weeks ago that a guy took his waifu to prom, and I thought, That’s very funny, but I’m not that bad. What else could I do? And I thought I’ll take Melee, because there’s such a big fan base and I’m one of those fans. It felt right. It was the heat of the moment."

Burwell notes that he isn't a "total loser," but he doesn't really know any girls he'd like to accompany him to prom. More pictures are on his Twitter page.
