  • -All right, so check this out.

  • Also, it's a big day for me. I'm very excited about this.

  • I had this idea. I always have these silly ideas, right?

  • And so I had this idea probably over a year ago.

  • I was in -- in my backyard, and I was thinking --

  • when I'm waiting online or whatever,

  • I always -- I have my sunglasses.

  • I usually, like, spin them or something like that.

  • I'm just waiting. Kind of fidgety or whatever.

  • And it just never -- I was saying,

  • "I wonder if someone could actually put, like, a little --

  • like a ball bearing or some type of thing

  • on the arm of the sunglasses so you can get a good --"

  • [ Whooshes ] [ Light laughter ]

  • I wanna get a good -- [ Whooshes ]

  • Get a good whip to it, you know? -[ Imitates whip crack ]

  • -Anyway, so I heard the guys that started Warby Parker

  • on this podcast called "How I Built This" with Guy Raz.

  • And it's a great podcast if you haven't heard it.

  • But anyways, I listen to it all the time. I love it.

  • And I heard these guys talking. They just came from --

  • They just started up -- started themselves.

  • They're just nice guys. I go, "You know what?

  • I'm gonna send them a video of my idea and say, 'Hey, guys,

  • I don't know if you can see this, or whatever,

  • or if you read this email, but I have this idea

  • where you whip the sunglasses around and whatever.

  • You're just waiting online.

  • I just think that you could put a little hinge or something.'"

  • Anyway, so, I didn't hear back. So it's just good. It's fine.

  • [ Laughter ] No big deal.

  • -No big deal. -I'd say probably a month later,

  • I get an email from Neil at Warby Parker.

  • And it's some video.

  • And I couldn't get the video to open on my phone

  • or whatever, so I'm trying to forward it so I can open it.

  • I open it up, it's this really funny video of him

  • going through the offices of Warby Parker,

  • and everybody in the office is pretending to spin sunglasses.

  • They all have "Tonight Show" on their laptop and everything.

  • It was really -- it was a funny video.

  • And he's like, "Let's talk." So I go, "Okay."

  • So we started talking about it.

  • And this is a year and a half later.

  • And, ladies and gentlemen... [ Whistling ]

  • ...as of today... [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Look at this. [ Drum roll ]

  • The first ever...

  • spinnable sunglasses. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Look at them. -Whoa.

  • ♪♪

  • -See that there? So that's there.

  • So look at this.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • See what I'm talking about there?

  • -Yeah.

  • -Spinnable sunglasses. [ Cheering ]

  • They are called -- they are called --

  • they're called Spinnies, okay?

  • Now they're available now at all Warby Parker stores

  • and at warbyparker.com.

  • They're a limited amount. There's only 4,000 made.

  • But here's the best part of this.

  • 100% of every Spinnies purchase

  • goes directly to Pupils Project.

  • Okay? This is a program -- [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Wait till you hear. Wait till you hear.

  • Wait till you hear what this does.

  • Pupils Project is a program that Warby Parker founded

  • that provides free -- free vision screenings,

  • eye exams, and glasses to schoolchildren in the U.S.

  • through public private partnership.

  • [ Cheers and applause ] -Come on!

  • -So if you're -- [ Applause ]

  • So if you're not fortunate enough to be able

  • to go to an eye doctor, or you know --

  • they come -- they will come to you.

  • It is an amazing thing. 'Cause you probably think --

  • the last thing you'd think about, if your kid's at school

  • not doing well at school or struggling,

  • is that they can't see.

  • A lot of people just don't -- they don't have the money

  • or they just don't even think about that.

  • But now, with glasses, you can go,

  • "Oh, he just couldn't see the board."

  • I just think it's a beautiful thing.

  • Who would have thought something so great would come

  • out of such a dumb idea like this?

  • [ Laughter and applause ] But look under your seats

  • 'cause everybody in our audience is getting...

  • -Yeah! -...their own pair of Spinnies.

  • [ Cheers and applause ] Put them up.

  • ♪♪ [ Cheering continues ]

  • Hold them up. Open them up. Take them for a spin.

  • Let me see what they look like.

  • [ Cheers and applause ] Oh, yeah, baby!

  • ♪♪

  • Oh! I love it. I love it. I love it. I love it.

  • ♪♪

  • Whoa!

  • Thank you to everyone at Warby Parker

  • for collaborating with me on this.

  • It is a fun thing for a great cause,

  • and I am honored to be part of this.

  • I love you, Warby Parker. You guys are awesome.

  • Thank you so much. [ Cheers and applause ]

-All right, so check this out.
