By now you surely have heard and/or seen footage of the soldier who asked Mila Kunis to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. Alright, it was pretty funny when Justin Timberlake maneuvered her into and corner and basically made it impossible for her to say no to an invitation to the Marine Corps Ball.
And it was still okay when a female Marine seized the day, called Justin out and got herself a dream date of her own. But now it's starting to get a bit ridiculous, a third Marine's asked Miley Cyrus, to one of the balls at Pendleton... And even worse when Sgt. Ray Lewis to create yet another video, asking Betty White to the November event... Ok, come on now, you'd think maybe the kids would get the hint that this is getting old... But no. Sgt. Dustin L. Williams followed it up by creating a YouTube video inviting Scarlett Johansson to a ball in Georgia... In which she politely declined.
What follows is the good, the bad and the ugly for Marine Corps ball invitations:
First, Cpl. Michael Sullivan decided to ask Emma Stone, who appeared in “Superbad,” “Zombieland” and other movies:
Cpl. Brenton Gunning went with Hayden Panettierre of “Heroes” fame for his invitation:
This Marine decided to invite Lindsay Lohan… although he may have confused her with Miley Cyrus:
And these Marine chefs decided to invite Nicky Minaj. No word on whether they’ll cook for her.
This female Marine asked rapper Drake to go with her. Her husband must be thrilled.
Another female Marine, another invitation for Drake:
Cpl. Bates asks Hugh Hefner to get him a ball date with all of his Playboy Bunnies. Shockingly, his jaw appears to be wired shut due to some unfortunate party accident:
Finally, this Marine takes a minute of his “not very busy day” to ask Scarlett Johansson.
Several other Marines had invitations posted, but their videos were subsequently removed. I assume a gunnery sergeant somewhere may be involved. Surely, we’ve exhausted all possibility of originality with this phenomenon… right?
