The boy had been coming into a Best Buy near New York City daily for quite some time to use the store's Wii U, and the employees wanted to do something special for him. Rahiem Storr, one of the managers at the store, said in an email that employees Kenneth Fernandez and Pal Ndoja decided to use their own money to buy the teen the Wii U system, which currently sells for $300 on Best Buy's webiste.
In a clip posted to YouTube, the teen can be seen playing the store's system before the employees come over to give him the moving gift.
"On behalf of all of us here at Best Buy, we got you a Wii U," an employee says in the video. "This is something we did for you. Everyone here that you see, we all got together and chipped in so you could have it."
The teen is speechless at first, before hesitantly taking the gift.
"No for real, this is for you. Consider it an early Christmas present," the employee says.
Storr added that the employees also bought the teen a copy of "Super Smash Bros.," the game he was playing, and gave him a ride home, where his parents were "very welcoming." They have since brought the boy back to the store.
"He just likes coming to Best Buy," Storr wrote on YouTube.
