Your high school prom probably wasn't as cool as the one The Chainsmokers crashed


Students at Huntley High School near Chicago certainly experienced a prom unlike any other this weekend. 

That's because The Chainsmokers, a chart-topping DJ duo, crashed their party. 

"Just crashed Huntley High schools prom! That was awesome!" the band, comprised of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, tweeted from their official account on Saturday. 

They even shared a photo with the crowd. 

“It was across the street from our arena show, so why not," they captioned the photo. 

The students didn't know it, but the surprise 10-minute performance was planned weeks ahead of the school's prom, Huntley High School Principal Scott Rowe told the Chicago Daily Herald. A student who is a fan of The Chainsmokers put the plans in motion by sending an email to the manager of the band. 

A filmographer associated with The Chainsmokers then called Rowe and asked to crash the school's prom.

It was probably the toughest secret I've ever kept, because I knew the kids were going to go crazy for it.
Scott Rowe told the Chicago Daily Herald

But the big secret paid off and The Chainsmokers began their performance around 7 p.m.

This high school, however, may not be the only one to welcome these prom-crashers. 

“Your prom could be next,” The Chainsmokers tweeted Saturday.
