Morning Glory's Recent Tour Felt Like a Symbolic Farewell to Ezra Kire's Past, Invitation to his Future
April 13, 2012
Everyone owned their own lemonade stand at some point during their childhood -- mine featured the adorable misuse of the word "free", which I clearly did not understand the meaning of -- but all those stands were likely thrown together in an hour or less and abandoned by the end of that same day. Nine-year-old Caine Monroy from Los Angeles took his childhood business-owning dreams to the next level, though.
Caine spent his summer vacation turning the heaps of leftover boxes from his dad's auto parts store into his own arcade made of cardboard. There were some pretty genius design elements to these hand-crafted games, but sadly, there was almost no foot traffic to his location. Until he got his first customer, who not only loved the experience but decided to help give Caine a big surprise, and film the entire thing.
Seriously, the short film created by this chance encounter with a creative little boy will have smiling ear to ear. Hit the jump to make your day.
