Last Sunday, Chris Rock brought his daughters’ Girl Scout troop to the Oscars hoping generous celebrities would buy some cookies to support the girls. As many eagerly paid cash for their Thin Mints and Samoas, Rock claimed the total came out to $65,243.
Turns out they didn’t exactly raise that much.
According TMZ, the more than $65,000 sale was just a joke made for the performance.
About 500 boxes were sold that night at $5 each, a Girl Scouts rep told TMZ. The actual total was around $2,500. This doesn’t include, however, any off-camera orders that celebrities might have made at a later time.
Still, $65,000 or $2,500, the Girl Scouts did get some great coverage this weekend.
