SHERMAN OAKS—Seventeen-year-old high school senior Jake Davidson posted a brief video on YouTube asking model Kate Upton if she will go to prom with him. The video itself spans one minute and forty-six seconds and has had over one million views since it was posted on Saturday, March 16th. The video consists of Davidson in a series of different situations, including lying with his dog by the pool, shaving, and doing push-ups as he gives several reasons why Kate Upton should go to prom with him. At one point, he playfully asks Upton if he can call her “Katie.”

The video ends with Davidson holding a bouquet of flowers, going on one knee, and asking, “So, Kate, will you go to prom with me?” Upon seeing the video, Upton took to her twitter account and responded to Davidson’s request, saying, “You can call me Katie if you want! How could I turn down that video! I'll check my schedule ;)”

Upton went on to say that Davidson’s video was “so hilarious and so creative” and that if everything worked out with her schedule she would love to go to prom with him and that they “would have a blast.”

Davidson’s prom takes place on May 23rd and he anxiously awaits Upton’s official acceptance.
