In a video that has gone mega-viral in little more than a day (3.5 million views and counting on
YouTube
), nearly every person who happened upon "Johannes," an 11-year-old boy sitting on a bus bench in snowy Norway, gave him some article of their clothing.
The boy, who was really a volunteer actor, was part of an experiment sponsored by
SOS Children's Villages International
charity as part of a campaign to send coats to needy refugee children in Syria.
