Army Ranger vet pulls professional model as date by using hilarious advertisment

Anna Besedina, a professional model in NYC, responded to an Army Ranger veteran's flyer -posted around New York City- for a date with him. (Instagram)

A former US Army Ranger posted cheeky flyers all over Manhattan in search for a date to his fraternity’s winter formal- and got quite the response.

Edward Roche -better known by his Instagram handle @nedbathandbeyond- has done much with his life. From Army Ranger to protective services for ACADEMI (formerly known as Black Water) and even becoming an ordained minister, the former member of the 75th Ranger Regiment’s 3rd Battalion is also a bonafide fratboy at Columbia University.

Posting a comical flyer around town (depicting himself as a mermaid with a Tombstone-esque moustache that turns out to be real), Roche sought out a date for his dance- provided the applicant was “photogenic, eclectic, not ratchet, not a succubus,” and “had to be 21 or own a fake ID.”

The flyer caught the attention of Anna Besedina, a 25-year-old model who was so impressed by the humorous flyers that she just had to meet him.

“I just thought it was one of the funniest things I’ve seen,” she said. “Who would do something this ridiculous? I had to find out more about him.”

Meeting her in person, Roche was pretty pleased with his efforts. Linking up and heading to Hell’s Kitchen for the party, the date ended with a complementary Uber ride home and a hug.

#TBT to when I looked like Allen from the Hangover. #PMC

According to the Daily Mail, It is unknown if a second date will take place. We think it probably will, provided Roche plays his cards right. RTLW!
