(Carlisle) -- Actor Danny DeVito took a cardboard cutout of the Cumberland County high school student who brought a cutout of him to prom to the set of the show "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."

DeVito's co-star Rob McElhenney posted a picture to Instagram of the actor posing next to a cutout of Carlisle High School student Allison Closs on set.

Closs tweeted that she was "SHOOKETH" and thanked DeVito and McElhenney for the reply.

She brought a cardboard cutout of the funnyman to prom last month.

Closs purchased a cutout of DeVito online along with a scooter she used to move the figure with.

She says she feels "honored and lucky" that she was acknowledged by DeVito.

The 17-year-old hopes she'll get a chance to visit the set.
