Here’s a tip for all the Nobodies who take to YouTube to ask out Celebrities: join The Marines.
We see these proposals all the time. Justin Bieber, go to the prom with me! Megan Fox, come to my employee picnic! Rep. Aaron Schock, come with me for a post-gym drink at the bar with that rainbow flag outside!
These desperate pleas rarely work. It helps to be a man in uniform apparently.
From the frontlines of Afghanistan, Sgt. Scott Moore of the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala posted a YouTube video asking Mila Kunis to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in Greenville, North Carolina.
“Hi Mila, I just want to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the Marine Corps. Ball with yours truly,” Moore said. “So take a second to think about it and get back to me. All right, bye now.”
Did it work? According to FOX411: Yes it did. The star of either No Strings Attached or Friends With Benefits (c’mon, they’re the same movie) reportedly said yes.
After questioning her publicist if she knew about the invitation, the clearly flattered 27-year-old actress agreed.
“I’ll go, I’ll do it for you,” she said, turning to Timberlake. “Are you going to come?”
“They don’t want me! They want you,” Timberlake responded. “You need to do it for your country.”
“I’ll do it,” she confirmed.
There you have it, folks. You want this to be you? Enlist.
