When we think of swoon-worthy celebrities, Joe Jonas isn't usually at the top of the list. (Sure, he's cute -- but that spot is obviously reserved for Ryan Gosling.) But today, however, the 23-year-old Jonas brother has won us over with his awesome new video.
Jonas is the latest celebrity recipient of a video invitation from an lovestruck fan. And while several other stars have accepted dates with fans, he gets major points for actually responding with a video of his own.
That's right: has received a totally unprecedented response: an elaborate video from Joe, asking her out!
So first of all, take a look at the video from Shaina Kohli, the college senior who asked Jonas to a Pepperdine University formal. It involves dozens of people, multiple props and locations, and even a re-creation of the Harlem Shake. It obviously took a lot of effort, and it has nearly 90,000 views.
And now, here's Joe's response:
How adorable is that? We love his low-budget '80s-infomercial vibe, complete with a fireplace on the TV and a saxophonist playing "Careless Whisper." It's such a perfect re-creation of this type of video, complete with wacky costumes (a NASCAR suit, a smoking jacket), a viral video hashtag (#justgowithhim) and location-based jokes ("Shaina, you've been pulling your weight in this relationship for too long," he says while pumping iron at the gym).
The ultimate aim of Joe's video is to decline Shaina's invite but convince her to attend a Jonas Brothers show in Chicago instead.
"I want you front row. Or onstage, your choice," he says into the camera. "We will have an amazing time together. What do you think?"
We're sure that Shaina is on Cloud 9 today -- especially after Joe ambushed her with a hug on this morning's Today show! We'll be watching her Twitter for updates on the big date. And we may just have to watch that Joe Jonas video again!
