YouTuber David Dobrik took it upon himself to play Santa for a few fortunate strangers this Christmas, randomly distributing thousands of dollars in a surprise giving spree.
While the vlogger’s video uploaded Dec. 14 opens with a surprisingly violent Christmas skit, the holiday spirit truly shows its face when fellow YouTuber Erin Gilfoy confesses she found “the one” via dating app Bumble.
Still driving, Dobrik immediately calls up “the guy who controls the budget at Bumble” and says he’ll keep Gilfoy’s statement in the video “depending on how much money [Bumble will give him].” Apparently the number quoted is satisfactory, as “the next morning” Dobrik runs out of a bank with literal armfuls of legally obtained cash (3:09 in the video).
But rather than spend it all on luxuries for himself, Dobrik and his friends proceed to freely share the windfall. In a wholesome montage set to the Lemonheads’ cover of “Mrs Robinson”, they drop a thick stack of cash in a donut shop’s tip jar, buy out a flower seller’s entire stock to gift to random women, and deliver a mountain of iPads to screaming kids at the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley.
No matter how cynical you are, seeing the donut lady tear up with gratitude will warm anyone’s heart.
