Caine's Arcade Film - Why the Interwebs Rocks

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

In case you haven't seen this film today, you need to take 10 minutes and watch it. If it doesn't make you happy, you have a stone cold heart.

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.

I watched this last week and I have to admit, I cried a little about halfway through. Totally heartwarming and sweet!
