WATCH: Sweet Guy Friends Going to Prom Guest on Ellen DeGeneres, and They Could Make You Cry

This is so sweet, we just had to post it.

Ellen DeGeneres featured a pair of guy friends who are going to prom together, and their story was so sweet it almost made us cry. When Jacob Lescenski, a student at Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas, found out that his friend Anthony Martinez, who is gay, wanted nothing more than for a guy to ask him to prom, Jacob, who is straight, devised a heartwarming way to ask his friend to prom. Anthony might be getting a really wonderful and handsome prom date, but Jacob tells Ellen that Anthony really opened his eyes to LGBT rights. Of course, Ellen can't let them leave without surprising the guys with a little gift.
