If you haven’t watched the following video by Nirvan Mullick, an amazingly touching story about a boy’s imaginative cardboard arcade, take a moment and prepare yourself for a emotional lift.
Caine Monroy built his arcade in his father’s auto parts store in East L.A., and it is complete with an assortment of games such as skeeball and even a claw crane. He offers tickets, prizes and “fun passes” for returning customers. Unfortunately, that was the problem: he didn’t have any customers– that is, until Nirvan discovered his store one day.
You can read more about Caine’s Arcade here, which includes information about his growing scholarship fund that will someday carry him through engineering school– if he hasn’t built an empire of cardboard arcades by then.
