When a cringe-inflaming YouTube prom proposal from a Milken Community High School senior to supermodel Kate Upton first began making the rounds earlier this week, most brushed it off as just another on of those videos.

But it's thanks to that very scoffing that Jake Davidson will be crowned Perpetual Prom King on May 23rd, with Kate Upton by his side.

"You can call me Katie if you want!" Kate Upton tweeted at Jake late yesterday. "How could I turn down that video! I'll check my schedule ;)"

And this morning, Upton and Davidson had their first one-on-one conversation when the Sports Illustrated staple phoned in to the Today Show to reiterate her promise to check her schedule.

All right, so it's not a definite yes, but it's a definite maybe and Kate Upton said his name. Which is more than enough to earn Jake high-fives for life.
