-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 ]
