ALPINE, N.J. — Forget door-to-door sales — Alpine father Chris Rock brought selling Girl Scout cookies to a new level while hosting the Academy Awards on Sunday night when he raised $65,243 for his daughter's troop.

The comedian turned the pitch into a comedy bit, asking the star-studded audience to "reach into your millionaire pockets" and "buy some of my daughter's Girl Scout cookies."

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden slipped Rock a $20 backstage ( WATCH ).

"Are we going to deny my princesses from cookies?” Rock asked. “Alright, Tina Fey, get that money, girl. Charlize Theron, yes. Matt Damon, yes. Leo, you made $30 million—come on."
