Pre-pubescent boys around the world have a new king.

He is Jake Davidson, the 17-year-old high school kid who made a YouTube video asking Sport Illustrated model Kate Upton to his prom.

She politiely turned him down after publicly flirting with the idea but Davidson's gambit wasn't for nothing. He's managed to land a red-hot back-up date who's a dead ringer for Upton.

Danish model Nina Agdal, 21, who was voted Rookie of the Year from this year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue - has agreed to accompany Jake to his prom tonight.

It's a teenboy fantasy movie come to life.

Jake's video plea to Upton, made back in March, became a viral hit, attracting more than 2.5 million viewers and mainstream news coverage.

In it Jake is seen lounging on a chair, lathering up before a shave and practising  push-ups.

"You're on the cover of Sports Illustrated. I read Sports Illustrated. Kate, great moments are born from great opportunity. And that's what you have here today. A chance to make a nice guy's senior year the best ever," he said.

Upton saw the video and tweeted back:

The Cat Daddy star soon found that she was busy that night, crushing poor Jake's dreams.

It's clear that Agdal's willingness to be Jake's date is a clever PR move. She invited the news cameras to join her as she went shopping for her prom dress and the cameras will probably be with her when she and Jake meet for the first time.
