Take it from me, asking famous actresses you’ve never met out on dates via YouTube usually doesn’t work. But that didn’t stop Marine Sergeant Scott Moore, who gave the rest of us hope when Mila Kunis agreed to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball in November. I think the secret is that you have to be holding a gun.
Sgt. Scott Moore, of the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, last week set up a YouTube page and posted a video [after the jump] asking the “Friends With Benefits” star to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in Greenville, North Carolina.
And when FOX411 asked Kunis about the invitation over the weekend, her “Benefits” co-star, Justin Timberlake, assured Moore he was going to make it happen.
“Have you seen this? Have you heard about this? You need to do it for your country,” Timberlake asked Kunis excitedly, before sending out a direct message to Moore. “I’m going to work on this, man. This needs to go down.”
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. [Fox411]
QUIT BEING SO GD COOL, TIMBERLAKE! If I took one lesson from this, it’s that walking through a military base holding your rifle is a lot more impressive to the ladies than walking through their backyard holding the severed head of their pet. Who knew? Hey, Diora Baird, Fluffy says I love you (*manipulates dead cat mouth*). Seriously though, a hot, famous actress overlooking a potential date-rape threat to fulfill a wish from a combat veteran is the best recruitment commercial the Marines could ever get. Way better than that one where the black guy learns to swim.
