Warning you now, this video will get ya!
This is Johnny. His dad had recently passed away, just before his 16th birthday. But right before he passed away, he left his son with an amazing gift for his birthday -a Dean Razorback guitar. His priceless reaction was caught on camera, posted on Facebook, and has reached over 65 MILLION views.
The video went viral and has touched millions, and when it went to Reddit, users have donated over $16,000 to Johnny and his family. One user even pitched in another brand new guitar for him.
It gets better. Even rockstars have been touched by Johnny’s story…
Hey guys, Nita from Alice Cooper here.
Just messaged /u/Pete_Kruse to let him know that I’ll take care of passes for John to come backstage and say hi to Alice and the band at our show. I watched this video a bunch of times earlier today before I even knew he was coming to a show, and sent it to a bunch of guitar player friends… such an amazing moment!! Can’t wait to meet John and the family!! <3
