Viral Video: Marine Asks Betty White to the Ball

Last week, Sgt. Scott Moore asked Mila Kunis to the annual Marine Corps Ball, and with some encouragement from Justin Timberlake, the lady said yes.

Next, Kelsey De Santis asked Timberlake to be her date, and he totally accepted. Well played, Corporal De Santis.

But now, not one to be outdone, Sgt. Ray Lewis is asking Betty White to accompany him to the same dance.

“She’s funny, she’s sweet, she’s mature,” the Marine sergeant says in his video, a long-stemmed rose in hand. “She’s the all-around perfect woman.”

Sgt. Lewis pleads a pretty good case, too: the young veteran did tours of both Afghanistan and Iraq and, according to a recent tweet, he plans to serenade Ms. White with a song next.

Internet! Let’s make this happen!
