Kate Upton is reportedly too busy to be Jake Davidson’s prom date, a request that flattered the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model on a YouTube video that went viral.
Davidson’s prom request was viewed over 2 million times, but Upton is unable to make his appointment in Los Angeles.
“[I] just don’t know if I can make it work. But I really appreciated being asked — it made me feel really great!” Upton told People. “This video was creative and funny. It made me laugh.”
Davidson posted a YouTube video last Sunday asking the supermodel to be his date.
“I’m gonna be real with you here, I don’t have a girlfriend, and with prom season coming around, that could be problematic for some,” he explained. “But I’m me, I’m Optimus Prime, and I see the glass half full.”
Davidson proved that by explaining why apparent opposites such as he and model attract: “You’re the ying to my yang, I’m Jewish, 5’9 on a really good day – and I can’t dance at all. You’re Christian, 5’10,” he said. “Kate we can ride around all night long, ’til 11, that’s my curfew,” Davidson added.
Upton re-tweeted the video to her followers and initially gave Davidson hope via Twitter:
“You can call me Katie if you want! How could I turn down that video! I’ll check my schedule ;)”
Davidson couldn’t believe his luck.
“You truly are incredible,” he replied. “Just responding made my year, thanks so much! P.S. Hope your schedule is free!”
Unfortunately, as Davidson has now learned, Upton is just too busy.
