Heartwarming video showing a man excitedly jumping for joy and raising his fists in exuberance has gone viral in recent days, with multiple outlets reporting that the short clip features a homeless man’s reaction to finding permanent employment.
According to the Daily Mail, the unnamed man’s reaction was captured after he received his first wages and news of longterm employment at Central RPL, a window and door manufacturer in the U.K.
The man — who purportedly lives in a shelter — had previously been given a short trial period at the company in an effort to help give the man a new start; that trial period was clearly a success.
“It might seem like nothing to most, but this guy has really won me over. His reaction as he left was absolutely priceless,” said Aaron Doyle, a man who works at Central RPI and who posted the video online, according to the Daily Mail. “The best part is, he’s been paid his first week’s wages and told he’s got a permanent job. The reaction as he left was priceless.”
Watch that reaction below:
In addition to living at a shelter, the man reportedly gets his food from a local church every day. Still, despite not having much, he is said to be quite generous to others.
“Taking into account he doesn’t know where his next meal is coming from and doesn’t eat the best, every single morning he offers me a chocolate bar or some of his coffee,” Doyle said, according to Metro.
Kudos to Central RPI for giving the guy a chance to turn it all around.
