Rahat is an Internet magician and prankster who, just a few months ago, pranked a homeless man named Eric into thinking he won the lottery. It wasn't so much a "prank" as it was just a really cool way to give the guy some money.
The twist to the video, though, was that Eric wanted to share his money with Rahat, which was as much a sign of gratefulness as one can ever hope to see. Well, that video went viral, and got a lot of play on places like Complex, the Huffington Post, and Reddit, and a just a few days later, the Internet started to raise money for Eric. That amount ballooned to $44,000, and now Rahat is going to surprise Eric with the house that the Internet just bought for him (along with some extra change.)
Check out the surprise above, and the original video below:
