High school senior Jake Davidson made Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton an offer she couldn’t refuse this week when he invited her to his prom.
"I'm Jewish, 5'9" on a really good day and I can't dance at all," Davidson said in a video he uploaded to Youtube. "You're Christian, 5'10" and that 'Cat Daddy' video should've won an Oscar for Best Short Film. You could say this is destiny."
“I’m gonna be real with you here. I don’t have a girlfriend, and with prom season rolling around, this would be problematic for some—but not me,” he continued. “I’m Optimus Prime, I see the glass half full.”
Shortly after Davidson’s clip hit the web, it became a viral sensation. If that isn’t a sign of the Gods smiling down on this kid, I don’t know what is.
Late Tuesday, Upton responded to her suitor’s request.

While that’s not a yes, per se, it’s a lot closer than anyone else not named Justin Verlander has gotten to taking Upton out. Good for you, Jake.
