LOS ANGELES, Calif. (PIX11) — A young filmmaker gave a homeless man $100, and secretly followed him to see how he would spend it — and what happened is amazing.

“I wasn’t expecting to get this kind of footage… to be honest, I thought this video would be more an exposing homeless people video at first,” Josh Paler Lin posted. “But I’m so glad that I could witness and capture such a beautiful moment.”

Lin expected Thomas to spend the money on liquor, but he was brought to tears by what the man did.

“This again [is] proof that not all the homeless people are bad people. Never judge a book by its cover. One love! :)” Lin posted in the video’s description.

The video — posted on Dec. 22 — has over 27 million views on YouTube.
