It's Viral: Caine's Arcade


Every so often, a story comes along that genuinely makes you happy. This video is one of these stories.

Caine is a young boy in the United States who one day decided to build an arcade at the back of his father's car repair store. What follows is a fantastic short documentary featuring fully functioning arcade games made out of cardboard boxes, a slightly questionable loyalty card scheme (500 plays for $2?!) and a happy ending that would warm even the coldest of hearts.

This video went viral because it featured a universal story that resonated with people, a parable that makes you feel as if anything is possible if you try hard enough.
