This video brings to mind old, old Candid Camera meets Extreme Makeover: wait persons at a fast food establishment are surprised with a $200 tip.
Their reactions are PRICELESS!
Leave it to a Blaze employee to come up with this wonderful plan. The Blaze’s Liz Klimas tells the story :
Andrew Hales — the 23-year-old TheBlaze told you about in July who works only four hours a week and makes awkward viral videos — has struck again. But not in the way you might think.
He wanted to record the reaction of restaurant servers getting a huge tip — $200 to be exact.
On his YouTube channel LAHWF, which stands for “Losing All Hope Was Freedom” (it’s part of a quote from Fight Club), Hales and his buddy ask servers about the biggest tip they had ever received. One woman said $100. A male server said $50.
To another waitress, Hales asks how much she would like to be tipped.
“$1 million,” she joked, then saying whatever they wanted to tip her would be fine.
Leaving the $200 tip, Hales wrote “I am the new record holder” on a slip of paper. This man, upon finding the tip, blows the generous patrons a kiss through the window.
Although not breaking news, every once in a while a story like this heals our “weary to death of bad news” hearts and brings a smile.
There has always been, and will always continue to be tragic stories to cover. But a little inspirational gem such as Andrew Hales’ “Operation Big Tip” gives a welcome relief to the flood sad events.
