Chris Rock helps daughters sell Girl Scout cookies during Oscars

Chris Rock helps daughters sell Girl Scout cookies during Oscars

The Girl Scouts of Inglewood may just be the most famous troop after handing out cookies to Hollywood's hottest stars Sunday night. "I want you to buy my daughter's Girl Scout cookies", said Chris Rock, the host and comedian.

Leaders of the anti-cookie movement also claim that the Girl Scouts have a historical relationship with Planned Parenthood, but there is little to no evidence that this relationship actually exists.

Chris Rock presents the amount of money collected by the Girl Scouts during the Oscars.

3. But he still shared with Matt Damon. "Leo, you made $30 million, come on!" Fortune reported that among those who bought a box of cookies was Vice President Joe Biden. Pretty clever idea from Chris, no!?

Even if the girls didn't sell tens of thousands of dollars worth of cookies, the air time and experience of a lifetime was priceless. She also said that to her knowledge, "No one has called and canceled their cookie orders".

He said: "The Girl Scouts' organisation isn't what it used to be!"

Take a bite of this video and learn how the Girl Scouts of America earned their business badges. How DARE the Girl Scouts of America promote the improvement of the lives of young women! As a whole, on social, the organization received 24,800 mentions with a reach of just over 1.3 million.

The event, which marked the delivery of Girl Scout Cookies and the opening of special cookie sale booths, surpassed all previous fundraising efforts, including when the organization celebrated its centennial in St. Louis in 2012. In addition, celebrities that tagged or mentioned the organization included Jamie Foxx, Aisha Tyler, and Olivia Munn.

OK, we're gonna need more cookies.

Mary Thone with the local chapter said she hopes the excitement for Girl Scout cookie sales continue, even after the Oscars.
