Sgt. Scott Moore recently made headlines after actress Mila Kunis accepted his YouTube invitation to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball held in November.
While he is still serving in Afghanistan, Moore spoke out on his invitation video saying how it started out as a bet.
“It was kind of a bet between me and Marines in my platoon,” he said when asked about how he came up with the idea of the video.
“I told everyone I was going to do it, but they didn’t think I would go through with it.”
But proving everyone wrong, he did it.
“One day we had a couple minutes, and I took another Marine out with me and we shot two takes. The first one was without sunglasses but I was squinting too much because it was so bright, so we shot the one I uploaded to YouTube. The rest of the Marines liked it, so I posted it that day.”
Scott, who has been contacted by Mila’s reps, also revealed that he didn’t have many doubts about scoring the date.
“Sometimes that’s all you need,” he said. “The Marines I work with did their best to spread it around.”
When he landed the date, he admitted, “My initial reaction was disbelief. It’s going to be a great experience to meet her, and it’s going to make the ball more special for everyone.”
Kunis agreed to go with Sgt. Moore to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18 in Greenville, North Carolina after hearing about the YouTube invitation during an interview with Fox411.
After Friends with Benefits co-star Justin Timberlake told her, “You need to do it for your country”, she consulted with her publicist and confirmed, “I’ll do it.”
Just when I thought Mila couldn’t get any cooler, she proved me wrong. It’s so great that she’s doing this as not only will it make Sgt. Moore a happy man, but also several Americans proud as well. What a great way to do her part as a citizen and serve her country!
