Really good story, it doesn't surprise me that he's gotten job offers already.

That was really nice and all, but I don't get it. His dad lost his job, so he's asking all of YouTube to help his dad find another job?

But it was really nice for his son to do that.

That's the exact point of it, I think.

Aww, that is pretty sweet. I bet most teenagers wouldn't think to do that for their parents.

I think most would. Unfortunately, as a young person, the only way to get a positive review in the news is to die - the more horrible the better

That's so sweet, beautiful video, that's really amazing of that kid to do that for his dad.

I wonder if other people will try this now that the idea is out... though if they do I doubt it will have such a strong effect. Plus, it'd be a shame for them to ruin this by cheaply trying to copy it.
