Man, I wish I had been that ambitious when I was a Girl Scout selling Thin Mints for Troop 1540 in the early 2000s. All I did was sit in front of a blockbuster video and ask if customers wanted to buy a box of cookies.
(That anecdote alone just sent me into Okay Boomer territory, [kids, ask your parents about Blockbuster Videos] Let me get my walker before I continue….)
Monmouth County Girl Scout Raven Lee took cookie sales to a whole new level this year. While we shmucks just shyly went door to door asking if our neighbors wanted to buy some peanut butter cookies, this brownie performed a parody of Walker Hayes’ “Fancy Like” to sell her cookies.
You’ll recognize the song from its appearance in the annoyingly catchy Applebee ad, here’s the music video:
The best part of Raven’s parody? This was no half-hearted effort. There are loads of costume changes in this video of Troop 573 star Brownie.
Fair warning before you watch this video: it’s a total catchy tune, prepare for it to get stuck in your head for a while.
“Be chic as a skinny mint on a date. Adventure seekers are new, they’re out of sight. Get her some trefoils, which are shortbread. “Toffee-tastic is my favorite!” That’s what she said.”
As of this writing, Raven is only about a hundred crates from her destination. You can help her by ordering Girl Scout cookies here. As she says in the song, “It makes a great Valentine’s Day gift for your Schnookies!”
