For a teen on Long Island, Christmas just came early.
After noticing a boy coming to the Best Buy in Valley Stream, NY to play ‘Super Smash Bros’ on the store’s Wii U demo console every day, a group of kind-hearted employees decided to do something special for the holidays. Using their own money, the generous employees pitched in to purchase a Wii U bundle for the teen, so he wouldn’t have to come into the store to play anymore.

Run an early-stage company? We're inviting 250 to exhibit at TNW Conference and pitch on stage!
According to a video of the exchange posted to YouTube:
On behalf of all of us here at Best Buy, we bought you a Wii so that you don’t have to come in here every day and play. This is something that we did for you, everybody here, that you see here, we all got together and chipped in so that you could have one for yourself.
The gesture left the boy speechless, and seemingly wondering if the too-good-to-be-true offer was a legitimate one. In the end though, he cracked a smile and the internet let out a collective ‘aww’ over this heart-warming Christmas tale.
