Adam Investigates: More 12 Days Gifts on Craigslist


We as you probably know just finished our
12 Days of Giveaways shows last month, which is suppose to be a time
of generosity and appreciation. But I found out last year some people take
the presents, they’re all excited about and then, they go home and
they try to sell them on Craigslist.>>[SOUND]>>[LAUGH]
>>I know. So, we caught some of them last year. Cuz, it was fun to catch them.>>[LAUGH]
>>For us, not for them. And then so, and then we aired it. And we thought that’ll stop that. Mm-hm.>>[LAUGH]
>>Nope. So we set up another sting operation and
we emailed them and said we were willing to buy their stuff,
not knowing it was us. And they thought they were
meeting someone named Chris. It was really my writer Adam,
and he brought Dasher along.>>[LAUGH]
>>And a camera crew, and here’s what happened. [MUSIC]>>All right Dasher, this guy has
a scanner that his fiance won. [MUSIC]>>Hi, are you Jackson?>>Yeah, [INAUDIBLE]
>>Hi.>>[BLEEP].>>Hey, come out here for a second.>>[BLEEP]
>>So, I’m with The Ellen Show.>>All right.>>This is Dasher.>>Hello.>>So I was just wondering why your fiance
wasn’t happy with the presents that Ellen gave her?>>We’re very happy with the presents but we don’t have actual photos anymore,
because we have just digitals.>>So that’s why you don’t
want the scanner anymore.>>Exactly, exactly.>>Okay.
I see. That make sense except I think you’ve
also tried to sell some other things online here. You sold the swag turn slider,
folding electric scooter.>>Yeah, for 200.
>>And then this camera drone here, how much did you get for that.>>I was able to get 250.>>So 200-250, so you all in $450 so far.>>Yeah. I hope Ellen is not gonna hate me. We really did need the money.>>Ellen doesn’t hate anyone, but with
all your talk of selling her stuff for money you’re pushing it. You guys are lucky that this is
the Ellen show, not the Oprah show. One time, one of Oprah’s audience members
tried to sell a car that she gave them. She sent out her goons and
they broke his legs.>>[LAUGH]
>>You said you don’t have any pictures. I’m just gonna get a Polaroid
picture of you quick.>>All right.>>[SOUND]
[LAUGH]>>I’m cool with that.>>Nice.>>You’re not suppose to shake them.>>You’re not suppose to shake them?>>No, you didn’t know that
>>You know for someone who doesn’t have any pictures,
you know a lot about pictures.>>[LAUGH]
>>This next girl we found, she’s trying to sell her
Moto Z Smartphone for $700. Do you guys know Thelda?>>My god. Ellen?
>>We’re looking for Thelda.>>My god.>>My god.>>They think this is a good thing so far.>>My god.>>Hi.
>>Are you Thelda?>>Yes, I’m Thelda.>>Hi.>>Hi.
>>I’m Adam with the Ellen Show.>>Hi Adam.
>>Hi. We gave you some gifts
from the Ellen Show.>>Yeah?>>Ellen was generous enough to
give you some holiday gifts and now you’re selling them for
a profit on Craigslist?>>[INAUDIBLE]
This is so embarrassing. I’m so sorry.>>So you don’t like this smart
phone that Ellen got you?>>Yeah I love it, but
I’m from Sweden so I can’t use it.>>You don’t have smart phones in Sweden?>>Yes we have and
I don’t know how to use this in Sweden.>>You don’t know how
to use that in Sweden?>>No.
>>What kind of smart phones do you have in Sweden?>>I have like this one.>>That’s exactly the same
smart phones we have here.>>[LAUGH]
>>Well you’re very cute so maybe I’ll just give
you more gifts instead.>>More gifts?>>I can’t stay mad at you.>>Do you want a,
would you like a smart oven?>>[LAUGH]
>>Do you use pots and pans in Sweden?>>Yeah, I do.>>Maybe you can share
it with your friends.>>Of course.>>Does anybody want a toaster oven?>>I’ll take it in.>>Yeah, you want the toaster oven.>>[LAUGH]
>>This was just a way for me to meet your whole dance class.>>Yeah, okay, yeah.>>Hi.
I’m single, television writer, make a lot of money.>>[LAUGH]
>>I work for the Ellen show. [MUSIC]>>All right this next guy’s
trying to sell a Coach purse. Marvin, hi are you Marvin?>>Why?>>Are you selling a gift that
you got on the Ellen Show? No.>>No?
>>No.>>Are you selling a Coach purse?>>No.
Are you Chris?>>How do you know who Chris is
if you’re not selling the purse?>>[LAUGH]
>>I’m not [INAUDIBLE]>>We’re just, you’re not selling the purse?>>No. Do I have one?>>What Chris were you looking for? What was it we got a runner. We got a runner. Let’s go, let’s go. You check down that way.>>[LAUGH]
>>Have you seen a man in a gray sweatshirt? Marvin!>>[LAUGH]
>>Dasher, this is no time for pictures,
we’re trying to find Marvin.>>Marvin?
>>Let’s go. Marvin. I just wanna ask you about the purse. Attention Ralph’s shoppers.>>[LAUGH]
>>Is there a Marvin in the building? This is the Ellen DeGeneres show,
I just wanna know why you’re selling the 12 days gift that Ellen
gave you on Craigslist. If you could just come up,
maybe we’ll give you some Ralph’s coupons.>>Come on Marvin, hurry up!>>The crowd,
the crowd is turning on you, Marvin. We just wanna talk, sir. [MUSIC] Lost him.>>[LAUGH] [MUSIC]>>Is that her over there? Are you Deborah?>>My God!
Hi Deborah.>>I love you, Dasher.
[INAUDIBLE]>>This is Dasher.>>My last name’s Dasher.>>Wait, your last name’s Dasher?>>I’m shaking right now.>>You were at Ellen’s
12 days of giveaways.>>Yes.
We got really, really nice gifts.>>And then we found out some
people are trying to sell them for a profit on Craigslist.>>This was my favorite
gag from last year.>>Hold on.You saw me do this last year?>>I saw it last year.>>And you still thought
you could get away with it?>>I didn’t think you guys
would come to Agoura.>>That’s how the criminal mind
works.Even when you know you gonna get caught.You have this compulsion.This
sick compulsion.I bet somebody else would appreciate a free.>>I think so.>>You want a thermostat from Ellen?>>Sure.>>Here you go.
What’s your name?>>I’m Eric.>>All right, happy twelve days,
here’s your thermostat.>>Perfect.
>>Hooks up to your wi-fi.>>Thank you.>>Nice meeting you, take care.>>[LAUGH]
>>God, you’re gonna kill me,
it’s just cash for her.>>Ellen gives and Ellen takes away.>>[LAUGH]
>>It’s okay.>>Well, we wanna make sure everyone
is satisfied with their prizes, we know you got two of the thermostats,
you don’t need that.>>Yes
>>Can I interest you in either a toaster oven or a drone to replace it?>>My god, are you kidding me? My son would kill for this, really?>>For the drone, I thought your
son wanted the toaster oven.>>My god. Can I put a picture with this, all that I wanted the whole
time was a picture with Dasher.>>No.
No pictures. Sorry.
>>[LAUGH]>>Hi, put Rachel on the phone. Angry Dasher’s here! Angry Dasher’s here! Put him on the phone.>>My God, hi,
this is Adam from the Ellen Show. I’m here with Dasher,
we caught your mom selling->>My God, are you kidding me?>>[LAUGH].>>My god, I’m coming! I’m coming please.>>You want to come get in trouble too?>>[INAUDIBLE] Okay, Here’s Dasher.>>I can’t believe that
we’re meeting Dasher.>>I’m here too, but.>>[LAUGH]
>>I’m glad we were able to replace your
thermostat with a drone. Both equally fun,
kids love drones and thermostats. And, let’s wave to Ellen everybody.>>[CROSSTALK]
>>[APPLAUSE]>>Thanks Adam and thanks Dasher. Hey, Marvin if you’re still hiding in the
bathroom in Ralph’s you can come out now.>>[LAUGH]
