Donald Glover Meets the Girl Scout Who Went Viral With "Redbone"


On Wednesday’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Donald Glover surprised the girl scout who went viral for parodying his song “Redbone” as a cookie-selling tactic and ended up buying 113 boxes.

For those who aren’t familiar with the viral sensation, Charity Joy and her father Seymour created a video of the young troop member rapping about Thin Mints and Tagalongs to the tune of the hit song.

Near the end of the show, Colbert brought Charity and her father out on stage and introduced them to Glover. While the little girl was all smiles, she meant serious business and immediately handed Glover a cookie order form.

After learning that the young scout needed 113 boxes to meet her goal, Glover offered to buy them all.

“Obviously Thin Mints. Those are the best,” he said. “You can put them in the refrigerator. I’ll take them all.”
