A group of Best Buy employees in Long Island, New York banded together to make a teenage boy’s Christmas for no other reason than to execute an act of kindness around the holidays. And maybe to go viral, but we’ll chalk that up to a collateral motive.
The employees noticed that the boy came into the store every single day to play on the free WiiU demonstration model because neither he nor his parents couldn’t afford to buy him one of his own.
The video posted above shows a Best Buy manager handing the boy a free WiiU console, that also includes a Mario Kart game, worth $300.
‘On behalf of all of us here at Best Buy, we got you a WiiU so you don’t have to come here every day to play,’ the employee told the boy.
‘This is something we did for you. Everyone here that you see, we all got together and chipped in so you could have it,’ he continued.
The boy looked stunned throughout the video, likely skeptical or at a loss for words, and was hesitant to grab the box. He eventually accepted the gift and a Best Buy worker gave him a ride home so he could play in the comfort of his own home.
Everytime I see one of the feel good stories, I plan on posting them. If you got one, send them to me. I need a reminder that not all people suck after I left my laptop and headphones in a cab this weekend and the dude who went in after me stole that shit. FEED ME THE LOVE, PEOPLE.
