NY Girl Scouts Use Leonardo DiCaprio As News Peg to Sell More Cookies

For a few dollars, you too can be like recent Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio; at least, that’s the sales pitch one Girl Scout troop in New York led with, and if we’re honest, don’t we all want to live like Leo in his free time?

The Suffolk County, NY troop was inspired by Chris Rock selling Girl Scout Cookies during the Academy Awards, according to ABC News. Their sign:

This is Leo

Leo wants an Oscar

Leo buys Girl Scout Cookies at the Awards

Leo wins an Oscar

Leo is smart

Be like Leo


Hard to argue with that. And then the girls went in for the kill:

“It made people stop at the table to read the sign, and then we were able to ask them to buy cookies. It’s hard to say no to a Girl Scout,” the troop said. “We thought the photo was funny and would help make people buy cookies.”


And their plan worked. It would probably work on us, too. Don’t you want to win an Oscar and date the world’s models and maybe Rihanna while vacationing on a yacht? Of course you do! Buy some Girl Scout Cookies and get into your new future!
