Christmas spirit isn't a major discount on Amazon.
Nah, not even close.
Christmas spirit is a bunch of Best Buy employees getting together and buying a Nintendo Wii U for a kid who comes into the store every day to play the display model.
The amazing act of kindness happened a the Valley Stream store in Long Island, New York.
A video posted on YouTube shows the employees swarming around a kid who's playing on the Wii U.
One member of staff approaches him and says,
Yo, on behalf of all of us here at Best Buy, we got you a Wii U. So you don't have to come here every day and play, all right?
The boy looks visibly stunned.
He sits in disbelief as the employee continues,
So, this is something that we did for you, everybody you see here we all got together and chipped in so you could have one yourself. Is that cool? I'm being serious, is that OK bro? For real, it's a Christmas present, and early Christmas present. You don't have to be here you can go home and play.
They also got him Super Smash Bros. The stunned kid doesn't say anything throughout the entire one-minute video because he's so shocked.
Rahiem Storr, who uploaded the clip to YouTube, said,
This kid came in every single day to play the display Wii U, the employees in this store saw an opportunity to make a child smile and did just that. They chipped in and purchased a Wii U for him with their own money. This is amazing, why shop at Amazon when you have genuine people in this world that you can continue to help keep a job.
ABC7NY reports the boy's parents brought him to the store the next night, saying he truly enjoys spending time at Best Buy.
See? There's still time for good things to happen this year, you big Scrooge.
