Making an entrance is a big deal for any occasion but when it is your school prom, the stakes are high. Teens across the UK and further afield have often shunned the more traditional modes of transport of a stretch limo or a classic car in favour of motorbikes, or evenbuses. But 17-year-old Megan Flaherty took things to the extreme by arriving at her school rite of passage lying in a coffin in the backof a hearse.
“I like being different,” Megan said. In footage that has been seen around the world, the teenager slides out of the back of the hearse. She jumps out of her makeshift coffin to the surprise of her friends at their schoolin New Jersey, US.
“No way, oh my god,” onlookers can be heard shouting in the back of the clip. A man’s voice says, “Well this is different.” Megan said the entrance was mostly about having fun, but there was a specific reason for her bizarre choice. She wants to be a funeral director after college, following in the footsteps of a family friend who drove her to the party.
