YouTube Sensations After Random Acts of Kindness

Posted: Updated:

Two men and their video camera have been capturing the joy that comes from their unexpected acts of kindness. Their latest video has been viewed 4 million times in 48hours on YouTube. ABC's Paula Faris reports on the do-gooders who are on a mission.

What you're seeing is a waitress who has no idea what's waiting for her on that table. She makes just $2 per hour but she got a $200 tip.

The same thing happens to this waiter.  And this one. In fact, it happened to several waiters all across Utah.  All thanks to these two buddies.

20-somethings, Stuart Edgington and Andrew Hales make a living on YouTube giving awkward hugs, opening doors, and complimenting complete strangers. 

The goal? Mostly just to get you to crack a smile.

Are you philanthropists?  Are you pranksters?

I would say we're pranksters.

They do a lot of funny stuff - even pretend to break up with people they've never actually met.

But it's this random act of generosity, for these waiters, that has made them an internet sensation…

"It's kind of like parents watching their kids open their presents on Christmas," said Andrew Hale.

"What we're going for are the feel good reactions that really just make you smile," said Stuart Edgington. 

"I love you guys!!!  You don't even know how bad i needed the money. You're like God-sent."

"That just got us, we were like, aw man, this was awesome," said Edgington. 

What started out as a gift for some unsuspecting waiters is now putting a smile on the faces of millions.
