Stunt 101: Teen Gets A $25K Dubai-Themed Entrance To Philly Prom

Where they do that at??? In Philadelphia, apparently. One teenage high school boy, Johnny Eden Jr., is getting all of the cool points after a video of his lavish prom entrance just went viral.

According to the NY Daily News, the teenager’s mom, Saudia Shuler, spent $25,000 on the following to make her son’s special night, EXTRA special: a camel, 3 tons of sand and exotic cars. He brought three dates , all in custom-made gowns, and wore three different outfits himself.

That’s right, 3 TONS OF SAND. Because, there isn’t any sand in Philly. Check him out:

Saudia, who owns a North Philly restaurant called “Country Cookin”, says she spent lavishly on her son because she’s been dealing a lot, health wise.

The mother dealt with a stroke and thyroid cancer just a few years back. She says this was in the works for almost 2 years. Saudi was happy to see her son, who earns “straight A’s” enjoy his gift at her door step, instead of actually sending him to Dubai according to the report.


Hit the flip for mor photos from the extravagant occasion.
