Q&A
Kate Upton asked to prom in viral video

Kate Upton :: Walter Iooss Jr./SI

Imagine taking Kate Upton to your senior prom? That’s what California native Jake Davidson is trying to do with this video plea to the SI Swimsuit model. So far, the video has been viewed by over 150,000 people, including Upton herself, who responded that she’ll check her schedule. While the Twitter universe anxiously awaits Upton’s response, SwimDaily caught up with Jake to discuss the viral video and his life as an internet celebrity.

SwimDaily: Tell me about yourself: Where are you from? How old are you? How would you describe your “game” with the ladies?
Jake Davidson: I am 17 from Sherman Oaks, Calif. and I would say my game is decent. I’m no LeBron James, but definitely not a Brian Scalabrine either. I would be a solid role player like an Earl Clark.

SD: What convinced you to do this video?
JD: I thought with the slightest chance that it could reach her I had to try.

SD: Why did you choose Kate Upton as your dream date?
JD: The most beautiful and coolest girl in the world, plus that last SI cover was pretty sick. She braved through some rough conditions.

SD: What reaction were you expecting when you posted the video?
JD: I wasn’t expecting anything, just hoping for the best.

SD: What news outlets have reached out to you since the video went viral?
JD: Fox News, SI, CNN, NBC, KTLA, Huffington Post, Milken Roar, Celeb Buzz, Pop Sugar

SD: What do your parents think?
JD: They are happy I am pursuing a dream. Not enthralled with the shower scene.

SD: How have kids in your school reacted?
JD: They have been so supportive sharing it and everything, I am so appreciative.

SD: Has this increased your success with the ladies in your school/town?
JD: Yet to test it out, currently my heart belongs to Kate only.

SD: Do you have a backup plan if Kate can’t come to the prom? Perhaps another SI Swimsuit model caught your eye?
JD: Not yet, I like to put all my eggs in one basket and then deal with the repercussions later.

SD: Will this go on your college application?
JD: Absolutely!

The whole thing is a bit strange.  Like asking Miranda Kerr (Orlando Blooms Wife) to go out to a Prom.  Shouldnt you be asking the Husband/BoyFriend 1st Fella?

I Dont know man.  When I 1st saw this I said:  Whheeooo Awsome. Go Jake!  Then I heard the Magic Words:  Professionally Produced USC Film (And all sorts of MakeANameForYourself) nonsense entered.  Ouch.  This was not Legit.  That was Professionally Produced, Scripted, Choreographed Video.  Heck Kate should be going out with the Director, Boom Operator, Lighting Technician, Script Editor, Editor, and also Jake.  To level the Playing Field - Ladies - And Gents - What I propose is this.  May The Best Man Win.  I'm Sure many other boys wanna go out with Kate.  Now let the Best Professionally Scripted proposal take it.  One proposal is good.  Thousands?  Far better?  And moreover?  Far more Fair.  I say.  Lets play Ball.  ( In lieu of Stacking the Deck)  We play Sports.  But we Play Fairly. On a fair playing field.  Kate is the SuperBowl Prize.  But the rules Jake, the Rules.  The credit at the end of the video have to be given.  None were given.  SportsManLikeConduct.  This is SI Afterall.  Now  Play BALL!
