Welcome to this week’s edition of “Trending Topic Tuesday,” where we share our take on what’s going on in the world and what promotional products would appropriately (or inappropriately) market the subject matter.
The Internet is abuzz today with word that actress Mila Kunis has accepted an invitation to this year’s Marine Corps Ball that was delivered via YouTube. The video (shown above) features Sgt. Scott Moore of the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, and his polite request: “I just wanted to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in Greenville, North Carolina, with yours truly. So take a second, think about it and get back to me.” With a little encouragement from her Friends With Benefits co-star, Justin Timberlake, Mila announced that she would indeed go to the Ball with Sgt. Moore.
