With Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out in a matter of months and Atlanta season two nearly here, Donald Glover is at the front of many of our minds. And while Lando Calrissian/Glover is a totally brilliant actor, that’s only a small slice of what he’s known for. Most of us are already pretty well-versed in his work as the rapper Childish Gambino and are huge fans of his work. While you and I might blast “Redbone” while we’re driving home from work, it seems that one young girl from Atlanta, Georgia used the song as a way to bolster her Girl Scout cookie sales. Charity Joy rewrote some of the lyrics to “Redbone” and used the song to advertise her delicious cookies.
The video of her singing her Girl Scout cookie-infused version of “Redbone” quickly went viral. When Glover made an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Colbert made sure to show the video to Glover, who was understandably touched at the adorable homage to his work. Unsurprisingly, Colbert quickly revealed that Charity was not only backstage, but she was still smack in the middle of the cookie-selling season. Take a look at the video that we first saw over at Mashable (Charity’s section starts at about 7:23) to see the adorable interaction.
Glover was quick to help Charity out in meeting her goal for this year’s cooking-selling season, buying up 113 boxes of Thin Mints to get her to her goal. We love that he wasted no time helping a young fan reach her goal, but we’re also super impressed with his choice to get over a hundred boxes of Thin Mints. Seriously, those months in between Girl Scout cookie season can creep by slowly, but Donald Glover’s going to be made in the shade with his newfound cache of cookies.
We love that Charity got a chance to meet someone she clearly admires, and it’s always fun to watch artists experience the impact their work has had on their fans. With the news feeling increasingly bleak these days, we’re so happy to find stories like this one. Keep rocking the Girl Scout cookie selling game, Charity, and congrats on meeting your 2017 sales goal in the coolest way possible.
