I remember when I was a kid that I liked going to the mall for one reason… the arcade! I could literally spend the entire day in there dropping quarters and mashing buttons. When I was at the arcade, I never really thought about making the games. I only could think about playing them. This video though, shows that some of us have a totally different goal.
At age 9, Caine decided he would start his own business. His dad, a small business owner himself, gave him some floorspace to expand on his dream. Caine constructed his arcade from cardboard and hit customers with a deal… $1 buys you four plays… $2 buys you 500! Still, no takers. Then, one day, someone stopped by and decided to play. Nirvan Mullick, his first customer and film maker (and, of course, director of this film), wanted to organize a small group of patrons to come down and play some games. What happened next was simply amazing.
The geek in me loves how he checks for Fun Pass authenticity. Awesome. Also, props to his dad for fostering such creativity so positively.
Hit Caine’s scholarship fund up if you think this is as awesome as I do.
