If you happened to catch yesterday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, you may have noticed a familar face accepting one of the talk icon's DeGensie Awards.
Last month, The Week In Sneaks host Jacques Slade was the "victim" of a prank at Foot Locker. It turned out that the prank was part of Ellen's "Kevin The Cashier" segment and Jacques was a good sport all the way through. Showing appreciation for Jacque's great display of patience, Ellen invited him to be part of the DeGensie Awards.
With his mother in attendance (of course!), Jacques spoke about the prank and received a little something special from Ellen and the good folks at Zappos. Check out the clip from yesterday's show above and the original prank below.
