Danny DeVito, renowned for playing Frank in 'It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia' and The Penguin in 'Batman Returns', has responded impeccably to a teenager who brought a cardboard cut-out of him to prom as her date.

The Pennsylvanian high school student in question is Allison Closs, who brought the life-size cut-out to her year-end school dance at Carlisle High School after purchasing the item online for $100, along with a scooter for $20 which she used to move the figure around.

The 17 year old talked about her adventure on Youtube, saying: "I couldn't find myself a date in real life or with an actual human. So I bought one on Amazon.

"I have always loved Danny. I loved him on 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia', I loved him in 'Hercules' and 'Matilda'. I just love him in every form he takes.

"Danny was there for me when I really needed him. He treats me the way a woman should be treated."

The story was picked up by Time magazine and the Associated Press among publications and broadcasters.

Closs said that she hoped the story would go viral and that DeVito himself would see it as "Frank is [her] role model" and she believes the actor is an "inspiration."

One month on, it looks like her wish came true as 'It's Always Sunny' star Rob McElhenney saw what happened and he and DeVito collaborated on this epic response.

"I heard you took cardboard Danny to Prom," McElhenny wrote in an Instagram post he shared on Twitter. "What a coincidence. He took cardboard Allison to Paddy's [the pub in 'It's Always Sunny']."
