The Awesome Story Of Caine’s Arcade

If you haven’t seen this yet, watch this short film about an ingenious little boy who built himself a cardboard arcade in his dad’s East L.A. used auto parts store, a film maker who happened upon it, and the flash mob that turned the arcade into a happening. Really, you should watch it, especially if you need a smile:

Talk about nerdy obsessions. This kid’s ingenuity is astonishing. How can you not love it?

    I’m not normally sappy but his little smile was very cute. Donate folks!

    Not ashamed to admit that this was so touching that I cried a bit – I hope that I’m raising my kids to chase their dreams as hard as Caine.

    Adorable and lovely. I was super impressed by his “security system” for the fun pass. I hope Caine goes on to do even more great things with that fantastic mind of his.

    To all parents, This is why I feel you should never give your child any ipods or tablets or any pda type device. Let them make shit and really use that brilliant head!

    So sweet. What creativity! I totally teared up by the end.

  6. No tears….but I put my money where this kid’s brain is. Imagine what he’ll be able to accomplish once he learns what the “checkmark” button on a calculator REALLY does…

    Oh that is so cool! I teared up at the end.

    Wow that was incredibly touching. It is so nice to see a kid with such unbounded imagination and drive and a group of folks who are willing to take a bit of time to make a kid’s day.
