When Johnny Bolinger, a cop and part-time photographer in Arkansas, posted this superhero-themed photo of a group of prom-goers, he didn’t expect anything crazy to happen.
Students at Subiaco Academy in Arkansas hid superhero tees beneath the boy’s suits and waited for the perfect moment to unveil the surprise. Johnny Bolinger, who takes pictures for BN Focus Photography captured the moment.
“We just did the normal, prom-style photos, but at some point they said they wanted to do a superhero-type of photo,” Bolinger told Buzzfeed News.
Bolinger said he was very impressed how coordinated the teens were, with the girls’ elegant dresses matching the boys’ vests and superhero logos.
He thinks they got the idea because superheroes are popular right now. “They’re just teenage kids and they thought it was cool,” he said.
The photo and story are now going viral.
