A man’s ‘good deeds’ video has gone viral – the video shows him buying a stranger’s groceries
Who read it aloud: ‘Pay for my groceries.’
Initially the woman thought Rus expected her to pay for his shopping but the look of resistance melted into confusion as he revealed he planned to pay for hers.
‘No, no, no,’ she said.
‘No darling, please, I feel guilty,’ she said again.
But he insisted and added that he does it for many people, and would like to do it for her as well.
‘I don’t know how to say thankyou except…,” she said before fist pumping him.
The video appeared popular on the ‘kindness influencer’s’ page where it racked up 22,000 likes and 280,000 views in two days.
‘It brings me to tears, any time I see a good deed,’ one woman wrote on the post.
While others called him a saint, thanked him for helping people and promised to do the same for him if he ever needs it.
Rus has dozens of videos online showing himself doing deeds for others
‘I can’t wait to come to Australia and buy your groceries,’ one man said.
But not everyone was impressed with Rus’ efforts.
‘Nothing says “I’m a good person” more than doing a good deed for the sole reason of posting it online for likes and attention. The truly good people do this without want of notice and in secrecy,’ one man wrote.
‘I would pay more attention to what we are when no one is watching,’ said another.
Many were quick to defend him explaining showing the good deeds online could inspire others to do the same.
‘Your content makes people aware of the importance of sharing,’ said another.
