Holy balls, there are a lot of balls.
This is why people love Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake: for their balls. Who else would have enough balls to go on the Today show yesterday morning and make so many hilarious references, especially about marines. And their genitalia. I know several ex-marines. They’re very intimidating. The last thing I would want to be doing is talking on national television about anything that could potentially misconstrued as part of their anatomy. But that’s what Mila and Justin are all about: the troops… and the balls. When you think about it, this whole Marine Ball thing is a genius PR machine for the movie. Not only do you get the standard channels covering the release of the film, but then you get legitimate news channels talking about how two celebrities agreed to go with Marines to their gala event. I think I even saw something about it on Fox News while I was at the gym, and we all know they weren’t planning on covering the release of a movie called “Friends with Benefits.” Not unless it involved another Anthony Weiner sext.
Also, I find the whole Today Show bit amazing marketing as well. Not only is it entertaining and hilarious, but it gives people a taste of what the movie is going to be like. It also proved that Mila and Justin have insanely good comedic chemistry. Essentially its another trailer with almost no production cost, and it’s already all over YouTube. Ryan Seacrest was talking about it on the radio yesterday when I was on my way to work, and that’s how I heard about it. It’s a perfect little bump of awareness going into the last few days before the movie hits theaters. But Justin and Mila, as much as I appreciate all of your antics, when it comes to box office numbers I don’t think you have anything to worry about!
