This high schooler scored a date to the prom with a Maxim model the old-fashioned way: by asking her out over YouTube.

17-Year-Old Dakota Ridge got Maxim model Arianny Celeste to agree to escort him to the prom after uploading a series of YouTube videos plying her with the usual pickup tactics: shameless, awkward dancing; endorsements from MMA fighters; and promises to keep bothering her with more videos ("but not in the stalker sort of way").

There are countless ways a video like this could have come out either being ultra-creeptastic or just pathetic, but Dakota managed to pull it off by balancing just the right amount of self-effacing humor and tongue-in-cheekiness.
