It's totally amazing that this film was posted last night and has gone totally crazy viral. The best part? 9-year old Caine's scholarship fund is almost $50,000! And he's a Los Angeles kid! Whoo hoo. (Of course, I hope he eventually goes to UCLA's School of Engineering :)
In a nutshell, this adorable, smart, inventive, sweet 9-year old made himself a cardboard arcade in his dad's auto parts shop in East Los Angeles/Boyle Heights. Filmmaker Nirvan Mullick happened by, was his first customer and decided to make a film...and set up a flashmob of Angelenos to play at his arcade. Watch this film to see how it all turned out!
When I saw earlier today, Caine's scholarship fund's goal was $25,000 and I donated a few dollars to get it closer to that goal. I just checked...and it is nearly $50,000! Awesome. That's a lot of fun passes.
