VALLEY STREAM, N.Y. — A teenager received an early Christmas present after employees at a Best Buy in New York stepped in and gave him a gift to remember.

A video posted on Youtube by Rahiem Storr shows employees give the unidentified teenager a Wii U after he came into the store to play the system’s demo unit every day.

“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 to play,” one employee said to the teen. “This is something we did for you, everybody here that you see, we all got together and chipped in so you could have it.”

The teen seemed confused at first, but eventually opened up to the gesture and cracked a smile.

“This video was taken in the Valley Stream Best Buy, 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,” Storr said in the post. “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.”
