Remember when the Girl Scouts tagged along at the Oscars to sell Tagalongs (aka Peanut Butter Patties)?

Well, they raked in some serious cash then. And now, they're stacking their success with the help of an Academy Award-winner and cookie consumer.

It's usually a bear to sell anything. But, the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County used "The Revenant" himself to enhance their marketing strategy with this poster.

"This is Leo. Leo wants an Oscar. Leo buys Girl Scout Cookies at the Awards. Leo wins an Oscar. Leo is smart. Be like Leo," the poster reads.

The troop also posted the picture on Facebook, where it has over 60,000 reactions. The girls said using the Oscar winner allowed them to sell more cookies.

Way to go, you smart cookies.
