Look ladies, I’ve got to be honest with you. I have a big old crush on Ellie Kemper and I don’t even know what to do about it. While funny ladies like Jennifer Lawrence, Anna Kendrick and Tinamy get lots of well-deserved hype for their hilarity, I feel like Ellie Kemper doesn’t get any credit. Thankfully Ellen DeGeneres recognizes her potential and continues to feature her in amazing videos. (Side note: where would society be without Ellen? No, really.Take a moment and think about a dark and bleak world we would live in.)
Last month Ellen sent her to DJ school and this month she sent her to the mall to wrap gifts pro-bono for normals. Yes, that’s right! There are people out there who are lucky enough to have gone to the mall to buy holiday presents and run into a celebrity wrapping them. Can you imagine? I can. But that’s only because I have a vivid imagination when it comes to celebrity fantasies. I don’t even want to tell you how times I’ve debated with myself of what I would say should I ever come face to face with Tina Fey in an elevator. I mean besides something that’s so witty that she won’t be able to resist adopting me and re-raising me in her image.
So if you’re also a celebrity enthusiast — and I assume you are because you’re here — I know you’re going to love simultaneously watching this video and wishing you went to that mall on that day.
