Must Watch Video: A Russian Driver’s ‘Simple Gesture’

While many on YouTube are more than willing to upload videos of stunts gone wrong or spectacular car crashes, rarely do you find YouTube videos showing kind gestures. If you thought the days of people helping each other on the street are over, think again.

In this viral 45-second YouTube clip from Russia, a man driving a van stops in the middle of traffic at a crosswalk. He see an elderly-looking woman waiting for traffic to stop, but the driver gets out of his car and helps her cross. After he’s finished helping, he gets back in the car and does his business. To that driver, it may not have been a big deal, but 477,000 people on YouTube watched his simple gesture in amazement.
