Video: Marine Sgt. Ray Lewis Asks Betty White to the Marine Corps Ball

Posted on July 17, 2011

After Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake accepted invitations to the Marine Corps Ball from active duty Marines who issued their invitations via YouTube, you might have thought the trend was over. Well, guess again. Marine Sgt. Ray Lewis, a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan, has issued his invitation to the girl of his dreams: Betty White.

In the video, Ray first shows off his physical prowess by doing a bit of exercise. Then, for the actual invitation he dons his dress uniform (which has quite a few medals) and a rose (The Bachelor-style) and issues his invitation. Ray is also a Hip Hop artist known as RSonic who will be performing that night, he says. He promises Betty that they will have fun, and exclaims, "She's funny, she's sweet, she's mature, she's the all around perfect woman." Take a look:

Will the 90 year-old Emmy winner accept? She is single. And, more importantly, has this become a thing? Will it become a badge of honor in Hollywood to be invited to the Marine Corps Ball? If it becomes a trend, think of the fabulous red carpet that could ensue in November.
