The Girl Scouts have gotten seriously creative with cookie sales, creating drive-thru services, e-commerce platforms, and even selling them at celebrity awards shows. As if anyone needs more motivation to stock up on Thin Mints and Samoas, one young entrepreneur has come up with a strategy that’s impossible to resist. Kiki Paschall recorded a video rapping a cookie-themed version of Cardi B’s hit “Money,” and the Internet is sold.
Kiki and her mom, Shania Accius, were determined to make money moves after business was slow in previous years and came up with the idea for the rap. Owning her #BlackGirlMagic, the remix features original lyrics penned by the mother-daughter duo, including “Look, my troop is all bad, the Juniors are real. Black girl magic, you know the deal. 'Communities served, leadership skills.” During the chorus she raps, “I got girls in my troop, cookies to the roof.”
The idea is inspiring and ambitious and smart and super savvy — all things the troops stand for. The Girl Scouts followed up to the original Tweet on Sunday, writing “#BlackGirlMagic is a rallying cry to celebrate the strength, resiliency, and accomplishments of black women and girls who triumphantly succeed in a society where discrimination and inequality remains pervasive.”
The 10-year-old Girl Scout from San Fernando Valley, California, managed to sell all of her cookies in just one day after releasing the video, which has now been viewed over 2 million times. And even Cardi B can’t resist the cuteness, responding to the Tweet on Monday. “I want all the cookieshhh,” the Grammy-nominated rapper wrote along with a link to the video. Watch it above. But be warned: The cookie cravings are real.
