– ELLIE, I AM GLAD THAT THE
GLOVES ARE WORKING OUT FOR YOU. HAVE YOU BEEN USING THEM? – I HAVE NOT TAKEN THEM OFF
SINCE I WAS LAST HERE. THEY–THEY ADD, LIKE,
A LITTLE SKIP TO MY STEP. THEY’RE GORG–HOW CAN YOU NOT
FEEL POWERFUL IN THESE GLOVES? – YEAH, YOU CAN’T.
YOU CAN’T NOT. – NO, SO I DON’T NOT. – YEAH.
[laughs] ELLIE, YOU ARE SO GREAT
IN A SMALL, CONFINED ROOM LEARNING HOW TO DJ. WE THOUGHT WE’D SEND YOU OUT
IN PUBLIC THIS TIME. SO WE SENT ELLIE TO A MALL, AND WE THOUGHT WE WOULD
HAVE HER OFFER TO WRAP HOLIDAY PRESENTS
FOR FREE. AND WHO WOULDN’T TURN THAT DOWN?
– YES. – OH, IT WAS WONDERFUL.
LET’S TAKE A LOOK. – OKAY, THANKS. – [singing]
JUST HEAR THOSE SLEIGH BELLS JING-A-LING,
RING-TING-TING-A-LING TOO – HI, ELLEN!
HO, HO, HO! IT’S THE HOLIDAYS, SO I DECIDED
TO COME TO THE MALL TO GIVE THE GIFT
OF WRAPPING GIFTS, WHICH IS MY GIFT TO THE PEOPLE. – [singing] COME ON,
IT’S LOVELY WEATHER FOR A SLEIGH RIDE TOGETHER
WITH YOU – HELLO, I’M ELLIE. I’LL BE WRAPPING
YOUR GIFTS TODAY. OH, MY–I’M NOT SURE
IF THIS IS APPROPRIATE FOR DAYTIME TELEVISION. LOOK AT THESE WOMEN.
– I KNOW, RIGHT? – DO YOU REALLY WANT
TO GIVE THIS TO HIM? OKAY, YOU WON’T SEE MUCH OF HIM,
EITHER, THOUGH. I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S WHAT–
I’M NOT A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR. I HAVE MADE THAT MISTAKE BEFORE. I AM SIMPLY A GIFT WRAPPER
AND A JOY GIVER. YOU KNOW, ELLEN,
A WISE MAN ONCE SAID A CHRISTMAS MORN IS–
HEY, MA’AM! SORRY, DO YOU NEED THAT
TO BE WRAPPED? – IT’S ICE CREAM. – LET’S WRAP IT. – WRAP IT FOR WHAT? – FOR YOU, YOU SILLY– – IT WON’T LAST TILL CHRISTMAS.
IT’S ICE CREAM. – HAVE YOU EVER BEEN A PART
OF A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE? ‘CAUSE YOU’RE ABOUT TO BE. [singing]
CHRISTMAS MIRACLES ON CHRISTMAS – THAT’S GONNA SMELL. – [singing] NONETHELESS,
IT’S CHRISTMAS AND ON CHRISTMAS MORNING EVERYTHING SMELLS
LIKE SNOWFLAKES – THANK YOU.
– MERRY CHRISTMAS, ANGEL. – [laughs]
THANKS. – [singing]
FA, LA, LA LA LA DO YOU NEED ME TO WRAP
SOMETHING? – YEAH, PLEASE.
– OKAY. OKAY. ALL RIGHT. OFF TO THE RACES. UH, THAT IS TOO MUCH PAPER. I AM DOING SUBPAR WORK.
I’M VERY SORRY. UM… I NEED TO HAVE A MOMENT. I NEED TO THINK
ABOUT WHAT I DID. SO I HAVE TO GO SIT
IN THE POTATO CORNER. [banging counter] – HI.
– MERRY CHRISTMAS. OH, MY GOSH, HOW OLD
IS YOUR BABY? – 21 MONTHS. – I’M SORRY, I CANNOT WRAP
CHILDREN UNDER FOUR. LET ME JUST GET THAT PAPER. I THINK WE CAN JUST–
OH, SHOOT! JUST A MINUTE. SIR! SIR AT THE SUNGLASSES KIOSK! COULD YOU HELP ME? THANK YOU! JUST THROW IT UP! JUST THROW IT UP
WITH CHRISTMAS CHEER! OH, YEAH, IF YOU BOTH–
IF YOU ADD SOME WEIGHT… IT TAKES A VILLAGE.
THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
OH! THANK YOU!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! OH, AND YOUR HAIR BAND. WITH LOTS OF HAIR ON IT. THANK YOU! – REALLY? GIFT WRAPPING?
– FREE GIFT WRAPPING. – GREAT. – A LOT OF PEOPLE DO RED
AND GREEN FOR CHRISTMAS, BUT I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT
TO THINK OUT OF THE BOX. – NO, NO, NO, NO.
NO, NO, THIS. – WELL, I’M GIFT WRAPPING.
– YES, I KNOW. I KNOW, BUT I DON’T THINK
THAT GOES. – WELL, I THINK– – DO YOU HAVE SILVER?
SILVER. OH, THERE’S SILVER.
– STOP, STOP, STOP IT. – COULD WE JUST–
– THE CHOICE IS MINE. – I THINK SILVER OR RED,
‘CAUSE IT MATCHES. – [sighs]
– PLEASE. – OKAY, I’M–ALL RIGHT,
WHAT DO YOU WANT? – RED OR SILVER WOULD BE
REALLY NICE. – I GET WHAT YOU THINK.
– YOU KNOW WHAT? IF YOU WANT TO JUST GIVE ME
THE RIBBON. – IF YOU WANT TO JUST GO SIT
IN POTATO CORNER AND STOP TELLING THE WRAPPER
HOW TO WRAP. – POTATO CORNER? – [singing]
OH, I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS IF ONLY YOU… – AREN’T YOU GONNA DO THIS SIDE?
YOU’RE NOT GONNA– – DON’T TELL ME WHAT TO DO, OR I’M GONNA YOU
IN POTATO CORNER. JINGLE BELL, JINGLE BELL – COULD YOU JUST PUT
ANOTHER PIECE OF TAPE THERE? – WELL, ELLEN, I DID IT. I WRAPPED SOME GIFTS, SPREAD SOME CHEER, AND CAME OUT WISER AND MERRIER. HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE. BYE! [cheers and applause] – OH, THAT WAS HILARIOUS. HILARIOUS. THAT WAS FANTASTIC.
THANKS FOR DOING THAT. – THANKS FOR SENDING ME. – AND I ALSO WANT TO THANK
THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE. USPS IS THE OFFICIAL SHIPPER
OF OUR 12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS. THEY PROVIDE
RELIABLE HOLIDAY DELIVERY WITH ENHANCED USPS TRACKING. AND, ELLIE, I ORDERED SOMETHING
FOR YOU. LET ME JUST TRACK IT
AND SEE WHEN IT IS COMING. BEEP, BOOP, BEEP, BOOP, BOOP… I’M–JUST–I’M CHECKING. [continues beeping]
– TAKE ALL THE TIME. – OH.
– JUST CHECK. – BEEP, BOOP, BOOP.
– [laughs] – BEEP, BOO, BOO. OH, IT SHOULD BE HERE
ANY SECOND NOW. I THINK IT’S–
– OH, MY GOD! [laughs]
– THERE YOU GO. [cheers and applause] – WE WILL BE BACK AFTER THIS.
