A Phoenix teen asked Emma Stone to be his prom date in a video that went viral will need to find someone else to take accompany him.

Arcadia High School student Jacob Staudenmaier filmed his so-called "prom-posal" in the style of the opening song from "La La Land," which features a dance number in a traffic-filled Los Angeles highway.

While Stone did respond to Staudenmaier, it was not the answer he was hoping to get.

The teenager read Stone's response on "Good Morning America" Friday.

"Jacob, thanks for making the greatest proposal I have ever received. I can't tell you what an honor that was and how much I smiled through that entire beautifully orchestrated video. I'm in London working, but I hope you have the best time at prom, and I'm grateful you thought of me," the Oscar-winning actress wrote. "Thank you. P.S. I do see Gosling around the eyes. Love, Emma."

He still plans on attending prom with friends.

"I'm going to have a great time with all my friends," he said.
