This is the hilarious moment a group of teenagers made their glamorous arrival at their school prom – on mobility scooters.
John Davidson, George Greenhalgh, Alex Mee, Matthew Bodkin, Jake Wright, and Adam Lee, aged 15 and 16, were filmed arriving to Castlebrook High, Bury for the event.
The video clip, which has been viewed more than 10 million times since the stunt last Thursday, shows the group of six friends dressed in sharp suits and sunglasses trundling up Parr Lane surrounded by traffic.

A member of the crowd lets off a smoke bomb and a crowd cheers as they drive up along a red carpet.
The school leavers were then transported to a coach for the prom celebration which took place at the Dukenhalgh Hotel.
A video clip of the arrival was uploaded to Facebook and was soon picked up by website the Lad Bible, where it shot to viral fame.
Mr Bodkin added: “We’re all very thankful for the interest as it was just meant to be a joke between a few friends and something a bit different instead of the normal sports car and limo arrivals.
Matthew Bodkin, former head boy, said: “We hired mobility scooters instead of limos or sports cars because we wanted to do something a bit different to the norm.
“However, we thought that instead of trying to impress people or go over the top with helicopters etc we would go for something a little more humorous and out of the ordinary.
“This is when, along with the help of Alex’s dad Aidy Mee, we came up with the idea of coming on mobility scooters.
“The horns, music, sunglasses and smoke grenades came to us later and were effects that we thought would add more humour, drama and irony to the big arrival as our mode of transport was mobility scooters which are traditionally associated with older and less able people than young high school goers.”
Mr Bodkin stressed there was no intention to discriminate or offend people who use mobility scooters.
“We never thought it would blow up like this nor did we intend for it to. We have had 3.5 million views on a video on The Lad Bible’s Facebook page and it has also had over 100,000 likes.”
