The New Gloucester Fire Rescue posted an original music video to its Facebook page last Friday. It's a parody of the song "Area Codes" by Ludacris and Nate Dogg.

Hooksett, N.H., native and volunteer firefighter/EMT in New Gloucester, Maine, Connor Boucher, created the music video in hopes that Ellen would reach out to him.

"Rap skills so good. Put me on Ellen. Fire prevention, yeah I'm preaching what I'm telling," Boucher rapped during the video.

With the help of #GetConnorOnEllen, the popular talk show host shared the music video on her Facebook page.

"Good thing Connor from New Gloucester Fire Rescue is a firefighter, because these rhymes are burning up," Ellen wrote.

People continue to comment to Ellen asking her to put him on the show, so next time you see the music video, it may just be on your TV screen.

"I am incredibly thankful for all of the attention the video has received. For a while I couldn't believe her page actually shared it. Since the time she shared it yesterday afternoon we went from around 400 thousand views to 1 million. It is insane. Now all we can do is sit and wait for a call," Boucher said.

Boucher said the purpose of the video was to use it as a recruitment tool as volunteer fire departments across the country dwindle in size.
