YouTube video: Homeless man gets makeover, food and bed
(KPLR) – Video of an ‘Extreme Homeless Man Makeover’ has gone viral after the video was posted on YouTube on Monday.
Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, better known on YouTube as VitalyzdTv, is a comedian that normally uploads prank videos. However, Vitaly said he “wanted to show people that I have a heart and I am a really nice guy.”
In the video, Vitaly approaches a man near the intersection of Palmetto Park Road and 441 in Boca Raton, Florida, and surprises him with the makeover:
Zdorovetskiy: “You hungry?”
Man: “Yes, I’m hungry.”
Zdorovetskiy: “You need work?”
Man: “Yes I need work.”
Zdorovetskiy: “Well it’s your lucky day. You’re on Extreme Makeover, you’re on my show right now. We’re going to get you a shower, get you a haircut and you’re going to a steakhouse with us.”
The man, who was not named in the video, initially questioned Zdorovetskiy if he was a scammer. However, after Zdorovetskiy explained what they were going to do that day, the man responded by saying “You’re just a good person.”
Zdorovetskiy and his friend talked to the man about his life on the street and his previous jobs. When they talked about money, Zdorovetskiy asked what $8 means to him.
“Eight dollars is the world. I could do so much with $8. I could eat…,” the man said.
Zdorovetskiy and his friend took the man to a steakhouse, where after enjoying a meal, the man said “I can’t believe I ate so much food. I ate steak, plus lamb chop… so many different kinds of meats it was unbelievable. This is a dream come true. It’s unbelievable.”
“You made my day, you made my night and you made my year,” the man said.
The video was uploaded to YouTube on Monday and already has over 78,000 likes.
