Girl Scout cookies have been around for more than a century, so if you want to unload them at this point you got to come up with a good sell outside of guilt tripping unassuming people on their front step(s). In related news, an adorable daughter-father duo, who from here on out will be referred to as Charity and Seymore Harrison, recently went viral after posting a video to Facebook where they performed a Girl Scout rendition of Childish Gambino's "Redbone."
Check it out below.
"Thin Mints, you wanna order some before it’s too late," Charity sings. "We also got Trefoils and they taste great. Tagalongs will make you feel fine."
The idea came about after the two brainstormed how to sell more cookies.
"Everyone talks about how cute Charity is and how they like the way she’s snapping in the video," Seymore told a local NBC affiliate. "People like the fact that a father is involved with the Girl Scouts and selling the cookies. Girl Scout moms have been reaching out about how much they like having ‘cookie dads’ around."
Thus far, the video has racked up more than 2.5 million views and been shared 70,000+ times. Charity has reportedly sold and impressive 1,600 boxes. The initial goal was 1,300 (which already seems really freakin' high to begin with). As a result of already hitting the number, she has bumped up the goal to a cool 2,500 boxes of cookies. Considering the remarkable marketing tactics, it seems doable.
Fellow Girl Scouts and Girl Scout dads, take heed and step up your game.
