ATLANTA — Atlanta loves rooting for its locals on the national stage, and Wednesday night, the city had not one, but two, reasons to cheer.
That night, Grammy and Emmy award-winning rapper, actor and director Donald Glover went on Stephen Colbert's Late Show to promote the season premier of Atlanta.
While on the show, Colbert asked the Stone Mountain-native whether he had seen the viral video of Duluth, Georgia Girl Scout Charity Joy and her dad singing over Glover's hit-song "Redbone" to try and sell cookies for her troop.
"It's beautiful," Glover said, when Colbert asked him what he thought of the video. "It's also crazy to me. I never was like, 'I'll make this, then one day a little girl will sell Girl Scout cookies to it.' It's pretty great."
"I was really touched," he continued.
When Colbert asked whether it made him hungry for Girl Scout cookies, Glover admitted that he would really like to buy some from the Girl Scout. So he did – 113 boxes.

Charity Joy set a goal to sell that number of boxes, and Glover helped her out and placed an order for 113 boxes of Thin Mints because, "They're vegan" Glover said. Plus they're Charity Joy's favorite.
