Here’s How Much Chris Rock REALLY Made Selling Cookies At The Oscars [UPDATE]

Chris-Rock-Cookies-02

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.

Chris Rock’s Daughters Made A KILLING Selling Girl Scout Cookies At The Oscars

Chris-Rock-Girl-Scouts

UPDATE: The actual numbers from the cookie sales have been updated.

During last night’s Oscars, guests were swarmed with Girl Scouts after host Chris Rock brought his daughters and their troop onto the show to sell cookies. Celebrities eagerly held out cash to the young scouts as they awaited their box of snacks.

So how much did they actually make selling cookies to Hollywood’s finest?

According to Fortune, a little more than $65,000.

Apparently Rock’s daughter and her troupe do pretty badly each year when it comes to cookie sales. Rock took this as an opportunity to lighten things up at an already-tense Oscar show by bringing the girls in to cash in on cookie sales.

Celebrities were more than happy to show the Girl Scouts some support.

Christian Bale was pretty stoked for those Thin Mints.

Video: If Denzel Washington Owned a Restaurant (Reggie Reg Impression)

Caught this clip on YouTube and the impressions done by Reggie Reg are so spot on and hilarious, he had me standing up in my room giving him a standing O. His bit revolves around going to eat at a restaurant, getting his order muddled up, and realizing the restaurant is owned by Denzel Washington, sprinkled in with appearances by Morgan Freeman, Chris Rock and Bernie Mac (RIP).
