Now it’s time for Justin Timberlake to put his money where is mouth is. While doing press for “Friends With Benefits“, Mila Kunis was informed of Sgt. Scott Moore’s YouTube plea for her to accompany him for his upcoming Marine Corps Balls. Timberlake, who was by her side, kept prodding Kunis to accept the invitation and be Moore’s date. He even did the “You need to do it for your country.” approach. Kunis accepted the invitation and asked Timberlake if he was going to come as well. He retorted. “They don’t want me! They want you,“. Looks like that isn’t true, JT.
The former ‘N Sync’er was the subject of another YouTube date invitation. Corporal Kelsey De Santis copied Moore’s successful method and asked JT to be her escort for the Marine Corps Ball on November 12 in Washington, D.C. De Santis is the only female at the Martial Arts Center for Excellence (MACE) at Marine Corps Base Quantico. She was clever enough to incorporate one of Timberlake’s signature songs in her invite. Check it out.
“Yo, Justin. You want to call out my girl Mila? Well, I’m gonna call you out and ask you to come to the Marine Corps Ball with me on Nov. 12 in Washington, D.C. All I have to say is if you can’t go, cry me a river. Hit me up.”
At this rate, the Marine Corps Ball is going to be more star-studded than any of the year-end awards shows if Justin accepts. De Santis is upping the pressure on JT and created a Facebook Page devoted to her cause. She even appeared on CNN’s “The Situation Room” Wednesday night to make another plea. Just in case you missed Mila being put on the spot by Timberlake, here’s the clip below.
Hopefully Timberlake will also be a good sport and attend the Marine Corps Ball. I wonder if all this media attention will translate into big box office numbers for Kunis and Timberlake’s upcoming romantic comedy, “Friends With Benefits“?
