Caine’s Arcade

I’m gonna make yer day
And then yer gonna say
This can’t be real no way
By god it’s just fun to play!

"Caine's Arcade" -- a short film about a 9-year-old boy who built an elaborate cardboard arcade in his dad's used auto parts store in East L.A. -- is one of the sweetest videos we've seen all year.

And now it's going viral: The 11-minute video has picked up 1 million views on Vimeo in just two days, and another 438,000 views on YouTube.

"Caine is a killer," filmmaker Nirvan Mullick, who directed the video, wrote in a recent tweet. "He has been making thousands of grown men weep at work."

[UPDATE: 12 April 2012 at 5:59 a.m.]
To date over $90,000 has been contributed to college scholarship fund for Caine and the money keeps pouring in. What an amazing story.

This is all real. I ain’t kiddin’ ya!
