The 'Bring Ellen to QWIL' video gathers the efforts of 17 undergraduate business students looking to get Ellen Degeneres to Canada for their leadership conference -- through the power of dance!
Celebrating typical Ellen behaviour, a representative from the Queen's Women in Leadership conference (also coincidentally named Ellen) extends a video invitation to the loveable talk show, complete with periodic outbursts of boogie. Donning a wavy blonde wig with a characteristic blazer, white shirt and slacks, student Ellen highlights celebrity Ellen's commercial success and powerful standing as a woman, citing these factors as reasons for choosing her to speak at the conference.
With the aim of empowering young women just about to enter the work force, QWIL, which started as 'Women in Finance' at Queen's University, is planning on launching an assailment of more videos, Tweets, Facebooks posts, emails and even snail mail to get Ellen's attention and attendance. Power to them!
