Donald Glover appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote the Season Two premiere of his FX hit series, Atlanta. Glover is a rapper/singer, actor, comedian, writer and director. He and Colbert talk about the comedy series and the awkwardness of being a “rapper.”
Later in the segment, a viral clip of a little girl flipping one of Childish Gambino’s (Glover’s stage name) “Redbone” was shown. Charity Joy remixed the song with her father to sell Girl Scout cookies.
“I never was like, ‘I’ll make this, and then one day, a little girl will sell Girl Scout cookies to it,’” Glover said. “It’s pretty great. A lot of people sent that to me and I was touched, especially that they’re from Atlanta. It was beautiful.”
Colbert brought out Charity and her father, Seymour, to surprise Glover. The young entrepreneur had an order form for her cookies with her. To help Charity meet her sales goal, Glover purchased all her boxes.
“It says, ‘My cookie goal is 113,’ so I’ll take them all,” he said. “You guys want cookies? I’ll do that.”
Atlanta will premiere tonight (March 1) at 10 p.m.
