The teen who asked Kate Upton to the prom got the surprise of his life when Kate called into the Today show to talk to him.
Jake Davison, 17, from Los Agenles California posted a YouTube video this week that explained why Kate should be his date for the prom.
The video generated over 101,000 views and got him an invitation to appear on the Today show.
The Sports Illustrated cover girl left the teen speechless when he heard her say “good morning.” Jake was so stunned that it took a few moments to compose himself.
“This just got so much better now that you’re on the phone.”
Jake, once again, tried to persuade Kate to go to the prom with him.
“Kate, I’m telling you, it will be a great night, great evening. I could even get the curfew extended – hopefully talk to my parents maybe.”
Kate would not say if she would or not, but she told Jake that she will look at her schedule.
The one minute 46-second long video starts off with Jake lounging poolside, reading the Sports Illustrated issue that featured Kate Upton. It then shows the teen shaving as he tells the camera: “You had me at hello. You are the ying to my yang. I’m Jewish, 5ft 9in on a good day and I can’t dance. At all. You’re Christian, 5ft 10in, and that Cat Daddy video should have won an Oscar for best short film. You could say this is destiny.”
Then Jake shows off to the camera by doing push-ups while he continues to say: “Now Kate, don’t get me wrong, we have our commonalities. You like sports, I like sports, you like fine dining, I like fine dining. You’re on the cover of Sports Illustrated. I read Sports Illustrated.”
At the end of the video, Jake wearing a suit, bends down on one knee while holding a bouquet of roses, then asks the camera: “So Kate, will you go to the prom with me?”
Kate loved the video that she tweeted and shared the link to it.
“You can call me Katie if you want! How could I turn down that video! I’ll check my schedule ;)”
