Christmas came early for at least one shopper, courtesy of perceptive employees at a Valley Stream Best Buy store.
In a video that has since gone viral, an employee presents the store’s frequent visitor with a brand new WiiU video game console. The employee said the workers made the gesture because the shopper had visited the store every day to play with the console’s store display model.
“On behalf of all of us at Best Buy, we got you a WiiU so you don’t have to come here every day and play,” the employee tells the shopper, who appears shocked.
“I’m being serious,” he added when the kid looked confused. “This will be your Christmas present.”
In a caption accompanying the widely shared video, the employee said: “We saw an opportunity to make a child smile and did just that. They chipped in and purchased a WiiU for him with their own money. This is amazing. Why shop at Amazon when you can have genuine people in this world that you can continue to help keep a job?”
The video was uploaded on Dec. 7 and currently boasts more than 1 million views.
