Here's what happens when an Internet prankster puts his popularity to good use.
Meet Eric. Last year, YouTube prankster “MagicofRahat” surprised then-homeless Eric by purchasing him a fake lottery ticket. Little did Eric know, Rahat had given $1000 to a store clerk and Eric’s chances of winning were 100%. Rahat (who has over three million Youtube subscribers) posted the clip and was slammed with a firestorm of messages asking how they could donate to Eric. He set up a crowd-funding project to help Eric get back on his feet. This is the result.
