Marine Who Asked Mila Kunis Out Gets Thousands of Comments, Streams on YouTube
Tweeted the actress Monday: "I'm so happy to be going to the Marine corps Ball!"
Sergeant Scott Moore has Mila Kunis as a date to the Marine Corps Ball -- and a whole lot of YouTube fans now.
Moore recorded a video from Afghanistan and posted it on YouTube on June 7 asking the Friends With Benefits star to accompany him to the dance, which takes place in Greenville, N.C. on Nov. 18. She was asked about whether she'd accept the invitation on Fox News over the weekend, and co-star Justin Timberlake told her, "You need to do it for your country." She agreed shortly after.

Now Moore's YouTube video has more than 487,000 streams as of Tuesday morning, and 2,900 comments, mostly patting him on the back for asking Kunis out.
"Well played, sir! " reads one. "Good deal man. Have fun. Be yourself," writes another.
