You would think Jake Davidson would be disappointed after his elaborate plan to take “Sports Illustrated” cover model Kate Upton to his high school prom backfired when her schedule didn't allow her to attend.

That is, until you saw his Plan B.

Davidson, the California teen who gained acclaim after he posted an elaborate YouTube video in March, asking Upton to accompany him to his prom, turned to another swimsuit model to be his date.

Nina Agdal, a 21-year-old Danish supermodel who made her first appearance this year in the SI swimsuit issue, showed up arm-in-arm with Davidson on Thursday.

In another video, Davidson jokingly showed Agdal's picture in the swimsuit issue to a friend and said, “What about her?” After the friend approved, Davidson said, “I agree. I may take her to prom.”

And so he did, and they spent the day shopping before attending the prom and being greeted by a horde of cameras and jealous classmates.

They expressed their gratitude afterward, posting Twitter messages and photos, and thanking each other for a great night.

@JakeDavidson23: @NinaAgdal you are the best! thanks so much for everything

@NinaAgdal: Had such a great prom night. Thank you @jakedavidson23 for being an awesome date!

An awesome date … and an awesome night to remember.
