While I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this trend in which people take to YouTube to ask celebrities on dates — it’s seems as though it’s kind of moved past the cute phase and is well on its way to becoming obnoxious — I kind of like this: perhaps inspired by seeing Justin Timberlake actually be someone’s date to the Marine Corps ball, in addition to seeing him play a cancer patient in 50/50, a 26 year-old with pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer named Lindsey Miller took to YouTube to ask Joseph Gordon-Levitt to go on a date with her.
On her blog, she writes:
…after seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s performance and seeing/reading some of his subsequent interviews about the film I thought, “This guy gets it. And he’s cute. I wonder if I could ever run into him somewhere.” But even though I live in LA, it seems impossible to find him.
Maybe YouTube can help…
OK, I admit: It’s ridiculous. And it feels like i’m making a big leap from being an anonymous cancer “liver” a few months ago to now starring in my own video.
But, life is short. So, why not?
I can’t be the only one wondering if anyone’s getting any celebrity a$s out of these things, can I?
NOW DO IT, JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT!
