Pranks can be fun to pull on your friends and family.
However, not all people enjoy getting pranked; in fact, some even regard them as being annoying and childish.
Well, not this one.
I guarantee that you will be pleasantly surprised by this epic prank!
Set in one of the homeless shelters in Glendale, California, the video shows that there are about thirty homeless people gathered around for breakfast.
When they’re done eating, though, someone shows up and asks them to go to the room next door.
And they had no idea what, or who, was waiting for them in the room.
They were getting a free day at the spa.
Various professionals – Manicurists, stylists, massage therapists, and hair stylists – were standing right there to assist the homeless in every possible way.
But, that wasn’t the end of the surprise.
They were also getting free clothes!
The before-and-after shots of the homeless people literally left me at a loss for words.
As the video shows, everyone is genuinely touched and grateful for the incredible gesture.
One of the homeless men featured in the video approached the host and said, “Somebody cares. I’m a Vietnam vet. Honorable Discharge. And uh, I’m not used to any affection.”
Such moments throughout the video show how a simple act of kindness could make a tremendous impact.
As host Greg Benson points out, we should be caring and mindful about those who are around us. “If you get anything from this video, please, remember to treat your fellow men and women with kindness and dignity,” said Benson.
You’ve probably figured this out by now, but this was no ordinary prank.
It was a part of the Prank It Forward movement, which aims to produce series of videos of thoughtful “pranks” that give back to those in need.
The channel, in return, hopes that the viewers would be encouraged to do something good for the others as well.
What a smart and heartwarming way to support the homeless!
