A Georgia Girl Scout and her dad teamed up to make a music video parody to promote the sales of her troop's cookies, and the internet is eating it up.

"If you want 'em, you can have 'em, if you need 'em you can buy 'em, Girl Scouts sellin' delicious cookies ... now stay woke, and buy these cookies ... Girl Scouts sellin', delicious cookies," they sing along, over the music of Childish Gambino's popular 'Redbone.'  

Music fans might be familiar with Gambino's song, which was popular on many radio stations this past summer. Gambino is the stage name for Donald Glover, who is an actor, writer, director and comedian who stars in TV show "Atlanta" and has starred in movies such as "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "Solo: A Star Wars Story."

The dad and daughter duo from Duluth, Georgia perform the song in their car as mom shoots video. 

"Thin Mints...you want to order some before it's too late, we also got Trefoils and they taste great...Tagalongs will make you feel fine..." Charity Joy and her dad Seymore sing together.  

The video has already been viewed on Facebook over 4 million times, and has been picked up by ABC News and other media outlets.

Mom Patrice Powers says the family has received many questions about her daughter's video and how it will benefit the local troop, since they posted the video over the weekend. 

"Charity has a small troop of eight girls," Patrice writes. "All cookie sales go to their troop! They plan to go see A Wrinkle in Time, have a discussion about being a Change Agent and leader, then they will have etiquette training at The Elite School of Etiquette and then this summer they wanted to go to the beach. We also are planting flowers at an assisted living, and doing STEM activities," she said on her Instagram page. 

 

Charity's Joy's adorable singing is enough to make us want to eat extra cookies just to help her out. Others feel that way, too, as orders from people around the world have come in. Charity Joy's original goal was to sell 1,300 boxes; as of Monday evening, she had sold nearly 5,000 boxes for her troop.
