Instead of using pranks to make someone laugh, a YouTube channel is using them to make someone’s day.
The YouTube channel Break - famous for its pranks - is running a campaign called "Prank it Fwd," which is attempting to change the way people look at pranks.
The “best shift ever” video, posted March 31, has gained nearly two million views in less than 72 hours as part of Break's inaugural week of positive pranks.
In the video, waitress Chelsea Roff, who has struggled with an eating disorder, spends her spare time running a charity that uses yoga to help others, and struggles to make ends meet gets tips that go beyond 10 or 15%.
Roff received tips including $1,000, a Hawaiian vacation, and a new car.
She also received an offer to participate in an eating disorder project and a surprise visit from a best friend that lives out of town.
The prank took place at the Spring Street Smoke House in Los Angeles, Calif.
Break is also promising to donate to the charity DoSomething.org based on the number of views clips receive.
