A Little Break from PR and Marketing

It’s Facebook question of the week time (clap, clap, clap)!

Except.

I didn’t record a video.

I’m not really sure what happened. Typically I get up long before the sun comes up. This morning, however, Mr. D’s alarm went off at 5:45 and it woke me from the dead.

It means I was a little more than an hour behind.

Which equates to no video. Well, no video from me.

Instead I thought I’d share a video with you that had me laughing so hard, I was crying.

I was on the El, headed to the Loop to have drinks with Danny Brown and some of our social media friends, while I watched this. I was laughing out loud.

Sitting by myself, earphones in, on the train.

Laughing. Out. Loud.

Let’s be real. Ellen, by herself, is hilarious. When you add in Kristin Bell and a sloth, downright gut belly laughing ensues.

I thought it was worth having its own blog post vs. being one of five in Gin and Topics tomorrow.

I hope you find it as hilarious as I did.

If you can’t see it in your Reader or email, click here. Trust me. You want to watch this.

Oh! And go stop by our Facebook page and leave us a question on the wall. That way I’ll feel guilty if I skip the video again.

Kristen is one of the most underrated people on the planet. I saw this the other day and it was hilarious – plus I could totally sympathize to her emotional range. I’ve been a big fan of hers since Veronica Mars (which, BTW, is also underrated and is completely amazing).

@Maranda Did you notice one of her fingernails is missing nail polish? Molli tells me that’s the trend. I think she’s human and it chipped off and her BF got it on video.

Maranda
4 years 3 months ago

@ginidietrich I did notice that. I also noticed how good her nails looked on Ellen show, so she recently had them done before an important event. I’m inclined to agree with you, Gini, because KBell really is the most human of the “famous” people to me. If you do not follow her on Twitter, you should. She’s been periodically sending pictures to update followers on her emotional status. Hilarious!

Funny and very honest. Part of me thinks Ms. Bell is very gutsy for sharing that video, but the other part tells me that losing one’s sh*t over a petting zoo critter is just a little this side of weird.

I LOVED this video!! I was cracking up at work when i watched it…my cube mates definitely think I’m crazy with my random laughing outbursts. Kristen Bell is adorable, and I especially loved the end where she says “He’s coming for the party?!”

That’s the best thing I’ve seen this morning. Thank you.

p.s. How do you get out of bed before 5 a.m.? That’s impressive.

@bradmarley It’s when I do all my work…before the day begins. Otherwise I’d never get anything done.

If a sloth and a hedgehog had a cuteness contest, who would win?

Maranda

@John_Trader1 Hedgehog for me. Sloths are cute but I always think of Ice Age. This makes me think of John Leguizamo and then the hedgehog wins. πŸ™‚

I bet when people meet bdorman264 or @Sean McGinnis or @jasonkonopinski for the first time they react in the same way. Almost like being tasered but in an uber gleeful kind of way.

@ginidietrich @HowieSPM @Sean McGinnis @jasonkonopinski What? I was a cute sloth too…………..

rosemaryoneill

Dammit I’m sitting here crying with laughter. Ellen + Kristen Bell + Sloth = perfect storm of comedy. Seriously, though, people who aren’t afraid to show their “kid-side” are the best. Remember when that director won the Oscar for Life is Beautiful and ran across the tops of the chairs? We all need to tap into that. Thanks for sharing this.

ginidietrich

@rosemaryoneill Funny, right?! We do all need to tap into that. People are much too serious.

Katie Gutwein

I LOVE this video. And then, one of my Debbie Downer friends told me to read this: http://laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/22548/Kristen-Bell-sloth-love-on-Ellen. Not that Lainey is a credible source, BUT I wish I wouldn’t have read her post…because Kristen’s video is now a little less funny :/.

ginidietrich
ginidietrich
4 years 3 months ago

@Katie Gutwein Of course it was produced and pre-planned, you goof. Do you also think the Iron Chefs find out their secret ingredient during the taping and really only have one hour to produce four meals? It’s still hilarious because she allowed her home video to be shown on Ellen. That’s takes some serious huevos, as lisa gerber would say.

Lisa Gerber

@ginidietrich @Katie Gutwein lisa gerber HAHAHAHAHA!! You said huevos!!!!!

Katie Gutwein
4 years 3 months ago

@ginidietrich @Katie Gutweinlisa gerber LOL. Noooo, the way I read Lainey’s take on it was that the WHOLE thing was produced….like, even the “home” video.

ginidietrich

@Katie Gutwein Funny, I didn’t read it that way at all.

I so didn’t think I was gonna laugh. Especially when I first started watching it. But when she got up out of bed and was positively joyful about the slot coming to her party, it was hysterical. Reminded me of when my kids were little and had the same sort of reaction. They were about 4 years old at the time.

ginidietrich

@HeidiMassey Yeah, for some reason I can’t see your son having that same kind of reaction anymore. Hilarious!
