In this HOT new ad campaign, supermodel Kate Upton dances with "Cave Dwellers" Ricky and Ricardo inside the Major League Baseball Fan Cave.

Sadly, it's not what you think. At all.

The Kate Upton "Cat Daddy" dance, it's not. In fact, it might be the farthest thing in the universe from it ... although Kate is still in it. And hot.

Watch below and see what we mean.

Forget take your kid to work day. This is Take a Supermodel to Work Day.

In honor of this made-up but lots-of-fun holiday, Kate Upton shadows a pair of NBA pros - Kevin Durant and James Harden of the Oklahoma City Thunder - at work in a new ad campaign for Skullcandy headphones.

Watch what transpires when the fun-loving SI swimsuit cover girl hangs with the ballers all day. It's pretty awesome. Not as awesome as the Kate Upton "Cat Daddy" dance video, but really, few things in life ever will be ...

SI cover model Kate Upton lends her good looks and apparent video game expertise to help a quartet of major leaguers learn the ropes in an ad for the new game MLB 2K12.

Titled “Finger Mechanics with Kate Upton,” the ad shows the curvaceous blonde teaching the baseball stars to an unhittable circle changeup ... virtually of course.

“Take your thumb, go up and then around, and that’s a circle change,” says Upton, who graces the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit edition, to her audience.

Best. Pitching. Coach. Ever.

The ballplayers getting their learn on from the 19-year-old stunner are Detroit's Justin Verlander, Tampa's David Price, Cincinnati's Jay Bruce and L.A.'s C.J. Wilson.

MLB 2K12 comes out on March 6, and Upton's lesson may pay off: A user who pitches a perfect game will be entered into a contest for a chance to win $1 million.

Date with Kate not included.

Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton is all the rage this week after the magazine's annual swimsuit issue mega-unveiling, so naturally, her love life is in focus.

Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres to get to the bottom of one recent rumor.

The talk show host got straight to the point by asking stating, "Your boyfriend, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. How does he feel about this?"

"I did not have a Valentine's date this year," Kate Upton, 19, responded. Ellen was unfazed by that seemingly implausible, evasive response, continuing:

"OK, so he was busy ... So how does your boyfriend Mark Sanchez feel about all this whole Sports Illustrated cover thing? He must be proud, right?"

"Well, even if I had a boyfriend. I wouldn't ask how he felt about it," Kate said, persistently dodging Ellen's questions. But again, it didn't end there.

"He would just tell you though, right? Has he told you? Your boyfriend Mark Sanchez? I'm just guessing that it's him. Is it him?" DeGeneres asked.

No response. Kate then asked Ellen if she wants Mark to be her boyfriend, which she point-blank replied, "Yeah... He's cute. Don't you think he's cute?"

Kate finally caved, a little, adding, "Yeah, he is cute," and explained that she met him years ago through her sister that works for the New York Jets.

That was enough for Ellen, who concluded: "She's dating Mark Sanchez." Maybe. But if she isn't, we doubt she'll be alone next Valentine's Day.

Kate Upton's Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover, which was leaked yesterday and goes on sale today, is pretty close to a dream come true for guys.

And for the 19-year-old model herself.

The Floridaian follows in the footsteps of bikini-baring bombshells Irina Shayk, Brooklyn Decker, Bar Refaeli and Marissa Miller as SI swimsuit cover girl.

She's modeled for Victoria's Secret and posed for racy Guess? ads when she was the face of the clothing line, but nothing in her life compares to this:

Kate Upton SI Swimsuit Issue Cover

After Kate Upton's Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover was unveiled, she told People, "This means so much for me personally. This has always been my dream."

Upton says the cover image was among the first ones taken by legendary photographer Walter Iooss, Jr., during the photo shoot in Sydney, Australia.

"In the beginning you're pretty relaxed, you're not thinking of new poses and it just feels really natural at that point," she says.

"At Sports Illustrated everyone's so nice. It’s like a family, you don't really think too much into it. I just have a lot of fun and be myself. It just comes so naturally."

Kate Upton will grace the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

The announcement was made by ... the leaked cover below, first posted on TMZ.

A few of the issues arrived early to a gas station in Michigan (why that state got first dibs, who the heck knows) and the pics are already making the online rounds, as these things frequently seem to do. Check out Kate Upton's SI swimsuit issue cover below:

Sports Illustrated originally planned to announce the 2012 swimsuit edition cover girl and the cover shot at an event tonight ... and they still might. But here she is.

Kate Upton was recently rumored to be dating Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets. There's no rumor about this, though: The 19-year-old (?!) is a stunner!

Upton made a sizzling debut in last year's edition, but it's safe to say this 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover will launch her into the stratosphere.

For those out there saying that the swimsuit issue has nothing to do with sports, annual issue also features athletes in body paint (i.e. Alex Morgan nude).

So there.

Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton and New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez are an item, according to the New York Post.

Sanchez has been paying frequent late-night visits to her NYC apartment, having been spotted several times at the voluptuous blonde’s pad since November.

Mark is 25 years old. Kate Upton is 19. Nineteen! Just barely passing the "half your age plus seven" test, that's a step up from his old GF Eliza Kruger, 17.

Sanchez was seen in the lobby of the building where Kate Upton (who's also been linked to Kanye) lives, carrying gifts for her after a charity event early last month.

On another occasion, Sanchez was spotted coming into the building with bags a minute or two after Upton arrived. They've also been seen at his place of work.

Upton has also attended some Jets games as her sister, Christie Upton, is a manager of client relations for the team and works closely with Mark Sanchez.

Another source insists that Upton and Sanchez are “just friends.”

The Jets QB has also been linked to actresses Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Hayden Panettiere, who’s now dating his teammate Scotty McKnight, in recent years.
