Nguyen is classmates with Natalie Salguero, who is also 17 years old. The pair have been friends for a while, but recently Nguyen thought it'd be cool to get Salguero's number.

He wanted to be creative, so gave her a lime with his number on it, aka a pick-up lime.

Salguero said she found it so funny she decided to share it on her Twitter.

This is Michael. Michael gave me a lime. It had his number ,Then proceeded to say "It's a pickup lime"…

People on Twitter loved Nguyen's fresh approach to asking a girl out.



Nguyen said he gave Salguero the lime because he sucks at talking to girls and wanted to do something to get her attention. He got the idea from a post on Tumblr.


Both said that the response has been huge, with people at their school calling Nguyen the "lime guy." He's even put it in his Twitter bio.
