A high school student from southern California is throwing a Hail Mary by asking Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton to his prom.
Jake Davidson and Upton don't exactly run in the same circles, making a face-to-face proposal out of the question. So, Davidson made a video for Kate, which has since gone viral with 26,248 views and counting!
In the two-minute clip, Davidson lists the many points of interest they have in common. She models for Sports Illustrated, he reads Sports Illustrated. She's only an inch taller than he is. He can't dance but he is a great admirer of her "Cat Daddy" video that nearly broke the Internet last year. In short, it's destiny.
Davidson admits that he doesn't currently have a special lady in his life. But, as an optimist, he sees the glass half full. "Great moments are born from great opportunity," he says, quoting Kurt Russell's character in "Miracle." "And that is what you have here today. A chance to make a nice guy's senior year the best ever."
No word yet on Upton's Twitter account, but if she does choose to accept Davidson's offer, she won't be the first celebrity to walk arm-and-arm with a mere mortal.

Mila Kunis attended a Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore, who had asked out Kunis via YouTube. Justin Timberlake accompanied Corporal Kelsy De Santis to a similar dance in Virginia. And a young cancer-stricken admirer asked Taylor Swift to his prom. She declined, but did ask the young man to accompany her to an award show instead.
Good luck, Jake. If it works out, send us a wallet-sized photo.
UPDATE: Upton called into the "Today" show early Wednesday morning and spoke with Davidson. “I definitely have to check schedules, but you seem like so much fun and if everything works out, I’d love to go with you,’’ she said. “I know we’d have a blast.’’
