Next time your kid says he’s bored, show him this video of Caine Monroy, and tell him to get to work!
Nine-year-old Caine, whose dad owns a used auto parts store in East Los Angeles, was bored last summer. So he decided to take all those empty boxes lying around his dad’s shop and turn them into a cardboard arcade, complete with games, fun passes, tickets and prizes.
But an arcade needs people to play the games: enter Nirvan Mullick.
Mullick was the only customer last summer, but he was so impressed with Caine that he decided to make a short movie (see below) and organize a flashmob through Facebook; one October afternoon he surprised the young inventor with a big crowd of customers.
Not only is Caine a great engineer, he is also delightful. Or, as Mullick wrote in a recent tweet: “Caine is a killer. He has been making thousands of grown men weep at work.”
Bring the Kleenex to watch this video!
