Kate Upton gets asked to prom by boy on YouTube (and responds)

(CBS News) I still remember the stress of trying to find a date to my high school prom. I mean, it's your last year and you really want to make it a night to remember. And while many may shoot high in terms of their date, one teen decided to go a bit above and beyond the norm by asking - wait for it - Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit 2013 issue cover model Kate Upton. Check it out.

The adorable and endearing request was posted on YouTube by Talia Myers (who directed the video), but actually comes from teen Jake Davidson out of Los Angeles, Calif. And guess what? Kate Upton actually responded on Twitter!  Kate writes back in her tweet to Jake:

you can call me Katie if you want! How could I turn down that video! I'll check my schedule ;)

Luckiest. Boy. Ever! I suppose the lesson in this surreal moment would be that high school boys everywhere should start taking notes on young Jake's smooth moves in order to start planning their own prom attempts at shooting for the stars (by that I mean movie stars and other celebrities, of course). Or you could just go with someone you really like and know you'll have a great time with, like your blogger here once did. Either way, just make sure to have a good time!

UPDATE: (Gasp!) Kate Upton may not be able to attend due to her busy schedule in May!
