Deployed 3/2 Marine asks: Mila Kunis, will you go the Marine Corps ball with me?

Well, you can’t blame a brother for trying.

A video has been circulating on the web in which Sgt. Scott Moore, a member of 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, out of Camp Lejeune, N.C., asks actress Mila Kunis to attend his unit’s Nov. 18 Marine Corps birthday ball in Greenville, N.C. He’s at a combat outpost in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, when he makes his plea.

“Hey Mila,” he says. “It’s Sergeant Moore, but you can call me Scott. I just wanted to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in Greenville, North Carolina with yours truly. So take a second, think about it and get back to me. OK. Goodbye now.”

The video is here:


Obviously, there’s a growing culture in which U.S. service members post videos online with pop culture ties, then find themselves in the national spotlight. Most recently, it worked for the Marines who produced a video of themselves lip-syncing Britney Spears’ “Hold it Against Me.” She posted the video on her Twitter page, and eventually met the Marines at a concert after their deployment in Afghanistan ended.

Moore hasn’t attained that kind of fame, but you still have to take your hat off to him. Not only is he clearly having fun, he’s cutting right to the chase. He wants Kunis, 27, a star in everything from “That 70’s Show” to “Black Swan,” at his ball. No lip-syncing. No dancing. Just a simple request.

Mila: If you’re reading this, Moore wants you to drop him a line at gowithmemila (at) What do you have to lose, really?

  12. Mila has no idea how special that night will be for her. The Marine Corp ball is so rich in tradition and she will have the time of her life. Glad she has the honor of attending as his date.
