In the fine tradition of members of the U.S. military asking celebrities via video to take them to social functions, an Air Force Base airman named Ashlyn Marra has now created a YouTube video inviting Justin Bieber to be her date for the 2012 Air Force Anniversary Ball in September.
According to Ohio's Springfield News Sun, Marra, who's 22 and who works as an ultrasound technician at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, decided to ask The Bieb to take her to the ball because she really respects him. "He’s a great role model and I love everything that he does for his fans,” she said.
Marra was also, of course, inspired by the fact that YouTube videos worked for Marines who asked Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake to escort them to similar events.
Marra's supervisor told the paper, "She loves how generous [Justin Bieber] is. It would just mean the world to her if he came to the ball because she loves that he’s such a good person. We’re excited for her, and hope he does come and escort her.”
So far there's been no response by Biebs to Marra's video, which cleverly incorporates clips of Bieber's hits like "Never Say Never" and ends with her asking Justin to "Call me, maybe."
