We're pretty sure that Marine Sgt. Scott Moore isn't the first guy stationed in Afghanistan to trying posting a YouTube video to get the attention of his favorite girl movie star, but we're almost certain this is the first time that approach actually worked.
About a month ago, Sgt. Moore ( who's serving with the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan) posted a video inviting Forgetting Sarah Marshall and That 70s Show star Mila Kunis to be his date to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in Greenville, North Carolina. No one paid much attention until Mila and Justin Timberlake did an interview with FOX411 for their new movie Friends With Benefits. Reporter Hollie McKay asked Kunis about the video and Justin stepped in 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.” Kunis nodded. “I’ll do it,” she confirmed.Let's hope Sgt. Moore has the time of his life and the whole thing doesn't turn into a real-life version of that old Lucille Ball movie Best Foot Forward:
