This is really happening and we have Tik Tok video evidence to prove it. Florida High School Seniors and Class of 2023 Prom attendees from around the country are jumping onto this trend. It looks like it got it’s start in West Palm Beach, Florida. And it’s not just having your prom pictures taken with a goat. Bringing that goat to prom. Well, maybe not in the building. But the pictures do look amazing. So why bring a goat to prom? It all goes back to Michael Jordan.

Jordan is widely known as the GOAT (Greatest of All Time). This year’s Seniors are the class of 2023. Jordan wore the number 23, hence a graduating class calling itself the GOAT. And although their logic may seem a bit of a stretch, they are committed to it. JerMarcus Askew of West Palm Beach, Florida’s Palm Beach Lakes Community High School, told The New York Post “I brought a goat to prom because I’m known in my city for being the greatest when it comes to fashion and photography. And I wanted to show everyone that I really am the greatest of all time.”

Florida High School student JerMarcus rented the goat named Naija from a local farmer for $100. And although they look amazing together, he didn’t bring the goat into the venue.
