The arcade is ingenius. The games are awesome. You can tell this kid spent all summer and every weekend since working on it. But he only had one customer. And no one at school believed him when he said he had his own arcade. But Caine never gave up and he always kept working.
It turns out that his one customer was a film-maker named Nirvan Mullick. Nirvan thought such a great kid and such a cool DIY cardboard arcade should be shared. So he set up a surprise flashmob to make Caine happy. And it worked. And he made an amazing short film about it.
If you have ten minutes to spare, this is the sweetest, funnest, best ten minutes you can spend on the internet. I promise it will leave you smiling. And if you're a big cry baby like me, sniffling.
To learn more about this grade kid, his arcade and the film, check out Caine's Arcade. There's even a scholarship fund set up for this adorable, hard-working and brilliant little dude. Sniffle.
