"You seem like so much fun and if everything works out, I'd love to go with you." That's what Kate Upton said to a Los Angeles teenager who posted a YouTube clip asking Upton to his prom. The Sports Illustrated cover girl responded to his request live by phone on NBC's Today show Wednesday morning.

Davidson made his pitch in a video he posted March 16. The 1:48 film shows him maintaining good hygiene, knocking out some push-ups, and putting on his tuxedo. The teen asks Upton if he can call her "Katie," and lets her know that "we can ride around all night long – until 11, that’s my curfew."
