Best Buy employees surprise teen who visited daily with his own WiiU

After seeing a teenager come into their store every day to play with the WiiU on display, employees at a Valley Stream, New York, Best Buy pooled their money to buy him his very own console.

A man identifying himself as store manager Rahlem Storr posted a video to YouTube showing employees giving the young man a WiiU and telling him to "consider it an early Christmas present." Storr said the group also gifted the teen with a Super Smash Bros. game, and an employee gave him a ride so he wouldn't have to walk home with his expensive new gift.

His parents were "beyond welcoming" when they arrived, and KABC reports they brought their son back to the Best Buy store the next day because he really likes visiting. This wasn't about bringing attention to the store, Storr said, but rather doing a good deed. "The employees in this store saw an opportunity to make a child smile and did just that," he said.
