'Extreme Homeless Man Makeover' video goes viral on YouTube
"It's your lucky day," Vitaly told a homeless man on a street corner in Florida. "You're on Extreme Makeover; you're on my show right now. We're going to get you a shower, get you a haircut and you're going to a steakhouse with us."
The man was initially in disbelief and even shed a tear.
Vitaly brought the gentleman to a department store and filled a shopping cart with $320 worth of items.
If that wasn't enough, Vitaly booked a two-night hotel stay, got him a hair cut -- he cleaned up nice -- and joined him for a fancy dinner at the Texas de Brazil steakhouse.
"I can't believe this is happening," said the homeless man who remained nameless. "I can't tell you how good I feel right now."
Vitaly brought the man back to the hotel, shared a hug and said goodbye.
On top of everything, Vitaly set up a donation fund to help the homeless man get his teeth pulled -- it's something he's wanted more than anything in life. As of Wednesday, the campaign has raised nearly $7,000.
