Joe Jonas might not have been able to take one female fan to her college formal, but he found a pretty great way to decline.
On April 2, Pepperdine University senior Shaina Kohli shot a homemade video asking her favorite Jonas Brother to attend her one last college dance on April 13. Since it was uploaded, the video has been viewed over 158,000 times.
Two days before the big event, Jo Bro released his own little clip. Though he unfortunately cannot attend her formal, Jonas offered up an even better consolation prize.
Lying down in front of the fire (well, a screen of the Yule log) with George Michael’s “Careless Whisper” playing in the background, Jonas plays the role of a suave gentleman, sipping wine and reading the Idiot’s Guide to Sailing. Watch below.
Coming to her straight from a undisclosed cabin, Joe lays his cards on the table, “except the Joker.” Though he declines Kohli’s original invitation, he offers to escort her to the kickoff of his band’s tour in Chicago, IL on July 10.
“I want you front row, or onstage,” he says. “Your choice.”
In the clip, he also trims his eyebrows, poses nearly shirtless, pumps some iron and ends it all with a sax serenade from Sergio Flores, better known to the Internet as the “Sexy Sax Man.”
This morning, Jonas — wearing a fake nose, long-haired wig and glasses — surprised Kohli on Today to ask her to the show in person. “I guess that will do,” she joked.
Of course, she still doesn’t have a date to her formal.
