Joe Jonas Declines Girl's Invite to College Formal, Makes Counteroffer
He also surprises the college senior by ambushing her, in disguise, on the Today show
Joe Jonas has his own special way of replying to elaborate, obsessive videos from fans – by sending back elaborate, obsessive videos of his own.
The Jonas brother, 23, did just that in response to a Pepperdine University senior named Shaina, who – adding to something of a trend lately – made a three-minute video inviting him to her college formal this Saturday.
In his tongue-in-cheek faux-creepy reply, Jonas – lying on the floor of a darkened room in a NASCAR-style racing suit, sipping red wide and listening to sexy jazz – politely declines the invitation.
But then he makes an intriguing counteroffer.
“I have a proposition for you,” he says, ultra-smoothly. “On July 10 in Chicago, Ill., I would like to fly you out, escort you to my concert of the opening tour. What do you think? I know. It’s gonna be great.”
July 10 is indeed the first stop of the Jonas Brothers’ 2013 tour.
Taking things a step further, Jonas showed up Thursday to the Today show, where Shaina was scheduled to talk about her video. Wearing long hair and a mustache on the plaza, Jonas removed his disguise and made the same offer to a clearly flabbergasted Shaina.
She seemed more than happy with the compromise.
