We’re still LOLing about that time Chris Rock used the Oscars as an opportunity to help his daughters sell Girl Scout cookies. It was funny, and also a wild success: Between cookie sales and donations, they raised $65,243 that night. One of their most high-profile customers was soon-to-be Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio. Now, Girl Scouts are brilliantly using that moment as a sales campaign. And it’s totally working!

After the Oscars, a troop in Suffolk County, New York was inspired to do some clever fundraising of their own. They set up shop with a humorous sign featuring Leo himself in that moment, licking his lips and looking lovingly at a beautiful box of Trefoils. The post suggests that good things come to those who buy Girl Scout cookies. Because hey, it worked for Leo.
