SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. (KTLA) — A high school senior in Sherman Oaks is shooting for the stars when it comes to his prom date.
The old saying goes that if you don’t ask, the answer will always be “no.”
Using that principle, Jake Davidson put it all on the line on YouTube, asking Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton to the big dance.
“I’ve had a really big crush on Kate Upton for a long time, and I just thought it would be incredible if she could come to the prom,” he said.
Davidson, a senior at Milken Community High School in Bel Air, uploaded a video that runs just under two minutes, showing him getting ready for prom.
While explaining why the two would be a good match, he shaves, works out, showers, gets dressed, and even has a butler fetching things for him.
Davidson notes that he has a strict 11 p.m. curfew, so he can’t stay out all night with Kate, but believes they can still have fun.
The video ends with Davidson, and his butler, on top of a mountain with a bouquet of roses, officially asking Kate to prom.
Tens of thousands of people have watched the video, including Upton herself, and the sexy swimsuit goddess seems to be impressed.
She responded to the video on Twitter, saying:
“You can call me Katie if you want! How could I turn down that video! I’ll check my schedule ;)”
“I truthfully did not think she was going to respond,” a stunned Davidson said. “Just her response was incredible, it made my senior year so much better.”
“Not only is she the most beautiful woman in the world, but she is also the coolest. I could not believe it. It was one of the greatest moments in my life.”
Davidson made the video in about five hours with his friend Talia Myers, a USC film student who says she’s happy to have the exposure.
“Every news site is posting it. I mean, you couldn’t ask for anything more,” she said.
Davidson, the class president and editor of the school paper, with perfect SAT scores, seems to accomplish just about everything he sets his mind to.
He says he’s optimistic that, come May 23, he’ll have the hottest prom date Milken has ever seen.
“Kate, do whatever you like,” he said. “If you could, that would be incredible. No pressure… That was so great that you re-tweeted me, thank you.”
