When you find yourself shopping the deals at the mall this season, be sure to smile at your clerk, since he or she just may be working for the North Pole. Santa's elves seem to be hard at work everywhere this season--even at Best Buy.
That's how people in Long Island in New York are feeling, after they saw this heartwarming clip. Apparently, employees at a Best Buy store noticed that every day for the last month, the same teenager came in to play their store’s display Wii U console.
So, the generous employees decided to chip in their own money to buy him a Wii U to take home with him, catching him TOTALLY off-guard. Watch!
As requested by the those touched with this story, the end of the #giftofgiving clip. Honestly, thank you @theshaderoom @kyle.anfernee & my awesome friend @brandonbrownb for bringing my previous post to the attention of so many different individuals. I'm still in shock this went viral, the end of 2016 has been a bit overwhelming, I posted this knowing its something special that people would want to see and appreciate. Thank you everyone for all the kind words, the blessings, the messages attempting to donate tv's or games, and also thank you to those who have shared this positive post with others ❤️️. I've gotten tons of messages asking a few questions or for a brief update on the well being of the young man. Special shoutouts to Ken(the speaker) @singaso , he actually delivered the Wii U to the young mans home where his loving parents were more than ecstatic that a group of people were so kind. Yes!!!! ....the young man has a TV and he also has his favorite game 😊. We've mentioned that whenever he is in the area he is more than welcome to return to play if he'd like! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you ❤️️
“I’m being serious,” the employee insists. “For real. It’s for you. It will be your Christmas present, all right? Early Christmas present.”
The boy seems stunned by the kind act, but he finally breaks into a smile after receiving the generous gift and manages to shake hands with other people on staff.
“After purchasing the Wii U for him, they actually drove him home, where his parents were beyond welcoming,” wrote Rahiem Storr, who posted one video on YouTube and identified himself as a Best Buy manager. A second video posted mentions that employees told the boy he's welcome to come back anytime to play at the store, too.
