ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – When was the last time you helped someone less fortunate than you? That is the question St. Louis students are asking in a YouTube video called “Never take life for granted.” The make-over video was produced by Saint Louis University basketball player Austin McBroom and Blake Carelli.
The duo picks up a homeless man named Michael in downtown St. Louis. They help him live like they do for a day. He is treated to a meal at Kentucky Fried Chicken and given a fresh haircut. The three of them even take a trip to the St. Louis Galleria to shop for new clothes.
The video’s description says, “A random day we decided to go downtown in St. Louis, MO, and make a homeless man’s day. This brief story tells it all from who he is, what its like to be homeless, and how it feels to experience life the way we do.”
When they ask hm for advice the homeless man says, “Stop getting in trouble and stay out of prison.”
