Over the last couple of years, several soldiers have gone on Youtube to ask celebrities to various military balls. A video proposal worked with actress Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, both of whom accepted invites in 2011. But will the tactic produce the same result for a Fort Bliss soldier currently stationed in Afghanistan?

Army sniper Tim Hudson hopes so. Hudson recently uploaded this video proposal to YouTube asking Justin Bieber’s ex, Selena Gomez, to the Army Ball when he returns home. There’s no word if Selena has watched Hudson’s video or replied to his invitation.
