YouTuber Rahat Hossain, aslo known as ‘Magic of Rahat,’ is famous for his hilarious pranks on unsuspecting victims but this time, he turned the tables and decided to trick a man and change his luck.

Rahat lives near a shopping center and has noticed a quiet homeless man who has been perched on a curb for weeks.  Locals have told the magician that the man is respectable, which urged the prankster to pull another stunt.  Except this time, he ended up in heartfelt tears.

What the YouTube star arranged was to take a fake lottery ticket and give it to the man, revealing he didn’t know how much he won but there were a few numbers that hit.  Walking with the man to a local store, he had the clerk pretend it was a $1,000 winning ticket.

What happened next will put tears in your eyes.

After realizing he had won $1,000 with the ticket, the man first is astounded, not believing what happened.  But then he surprised even the biggest prankster: he tried to give half of it back.

It’s truly heartwarming and can add a tear or two to anyone’s eyes.

Note: the man kept the $1,000 that he ‘won’ and Rahat put him up in a hotel for two weeks.
