Talk about a girl with true grit! Never mind the fact that Cpl. Kelly De Santis is the only female serving at the Martial Arts Center for Excellence at Marine Corps Base Quantico. De Santis just called out Justin Timberlake in a YouTube video inspired by a fellow male Marine's (successful!) invitation of Mila Kunis to be his date for the Marine Corps Ball. As Justin would say: Damn, girl!
This has got to be the most foolproof ploy to land Justin Timberlake ever executed: Since JT is the one who publicly nudged Kunis to accept her Marine Corps Ball invitation, he can't very well decline his own without looking like a lameass. And De Santis knows it: "If you can't make it, all I can say is 'Cry Me a River,'" she taunts him at the end of the video. Aw yeah, you hear that JT??
The other thing I love about this video is the line of super-buff male Marines standing in a line behind De Santis as she addresses Timberlake. Each guy has his arms folded and his legs apart in a stance that says, "You WILL be taking our girl to the ball, understood?" How funny would it be if those same guys trailed behind De Santis and Timberlake at the Ball as chaperones?
I'm already a huge fan of Timberlake, but if he steps up and takes De Santis to the dance, I might just, I don't know, get his name tattooed on my lower back or something. Going through with this stunt would officially make JT THE Most Charming Celeb Ever. Charming enough, even, to warrant a tramp stamp. (Just don't hold me to that, okay?)
Hopefully in the next chapter of this saga, Mila Kunis will have a "turnabout is fair play" moment and put her boy Justin on the spot. I can't wait to see how he reacts!
Do you think Justin Timberlake will take Cpl. Kelly De Santis to the Marine Corps Ball?
