Now Marines Ask Timberlake, Betty White to Marine Corps. Ball?

Last week we told you about the Marine who asked Mila Kunis to be his date to the upcoming Marine Corps Ball in November. The Friends with Benefits star agreed after some playful coercion from co-star Justin Timberlake. Not to be outdone, Corporal Kelsey De Santis then asked Timberlake to be her date to the ball, to which the singer/actor agreed.

If it didn’t already look like a PR stunt promoting Kunis and Timberlake’s movie (Friends with Benefits opens this week, hmm…), now it seems this thing is starting to become a parody of itself (there’s already a "Terrorist Asks Kim Kardashian to Gala" YouTube video out there). Sergeant Ray Lewis (not the Baltimore Ravens linebacker) just asked the 89-year-old Betty White to be his date to the ball. Lewis is an Afghanistan and Iraq veteran, a journalist and a hip-hop artist performing under the name RSonic. White declined the offer stating that while she was deeply flattered and loves a man in uniform, she would be busy taping an episode of her TVLand Channel comedy Hot in Cleveland.
 
Lewis will be performing at the ball and stated, “I really think we’d have a good time. I’m fun, you know. I think I can make her laugh. I think she can make me laugh. I think we can laugh together.”
 
When we asked who you would like to ask out to the ball, we got answers including Kunis, Olivia Wilde, Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway. Now we have to ask, should somebody step in and put a cap on Marines soliciting actors, or should these men and women who put their lives on the line every day have free reign? When you put it like that, I suppose the answer is pretty obvious.
 
Check out the videos below and let us know what you think.
