Girl scout goes viral for rapping to Cardi B's 'Money' in video to boost cookie sales
A Girl Scout from California filmed herself rapping to Cardi B's "Money" as an effort to boost her cookie sales, and it has gone viral all over the country.
Kiki Paschall, 10, is no stranger to the latest rap songs. That is why when she needed a way to boost her Girl Scout cookie sales, she and her mom, Shania Accius, teamed up to compose a song that she could belt out to.
The supportive mother helped her daughter create a music video for Cardi B's hit song "Money", with her own remixed version. Her lyrics explained the Girl Scouts and their effort of selling cookies. She introduced the different cookie flavors in the video and even asked her neighbors to open up when she knows on their door.
In a world filled with “girl power” messaging, it’s easy for girls to feel pressure to be perfect and excel in all things. But in an all-girl environment, she doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone. https://t.co/t86mTHcO9Z— Girl Scouts (@girlscouts) February 4, 2019
"Been in this game since 2014, selling them cookies is my thing. Buy thin mints or even s'mores. Please open up when I knock on your door. Woo!"
Her music video went viral after the Girl Scouts of the USA posted the video on Twitter, where it has been viewed 2.15 million times. Of course, with Twitter being an avenue to reach a wider audience, it has gotten a total of 21,137 retweets and 70,000 likes.
While being noticed by the official Girl Scouts of the USA account is already exciting, things got even crazier for Kiki and her mom, as even Cardi B ended up sharing the video with the caption "I want all the cookieshhh."

Before the creation of the video, her goal was to create 500 boxes of cookies. Now, she exceeded her goal by a thousand.
#BlackGirlMagic is a rallying cry to celebrate the strength, resiliency, and accomplishments of black women and girls who triumphantly succeed in a society where discrimination and inequality remains pervasive.— Girl Scouts (@girlscouts) February 3, 2019
As for how Kiki feels with all the attention and love she's been getting from people around the world, her mom says:
"This moment, she'll never forget. She is loving every second of it."
