Here’s a Guy Just Giving Away Jordans on the Streets of Compton (Video)
A video of some random guy just giving away Jordans on the streets of Compton sounds pretty entertaining just on the surface. Jordans are expensive. People like them. Ergo, free Jordans are bound to bring smiles to faces.
However, this video is a little bit more than just some random guy giving away Jordans. It’s a response to a rather mean-spirited prank video called “Stepping on People’s Jordans” that went viral earlier this month.
The person behind it is a guy named Dawson, the namesake for a YouTube channel called BigDawsTv. Here is his explanation for his latest video, “Giving Away Jordans”:
Hey guys! I am about to hit 500,000 subscribers so I wanted to do an awesome giveaway! I am tired of seeing pranks go wrong in the hood making black people look bad, in which most of the time they are fake anyways. Just in case you guys don’t know, I have inside ears to the prank world so I know that most of the big pranksters videos are fake, here at BigDawsTv we keep it 100% real. I don’t like the video “Stepping on People’s Jordans” So I kind of had the idea to make up for it by going into Compton and give away Retro Air Jordans. We went to FootLocker and bought 6 pairs and had gift receipts put in the boxes just incase they wanted to return them for a different size or color. I had an awesome time making the video, people thought it was too good to be true at first so they were a bit skeptical in their reaction but they were all very grateful. Thank you all for giving me so much support, I have quite a few awesome prank videos lined up to drop to next few Mondays that I know you guys will enjoy. Who is your favorite Prankster?? #DawsKingdom
Take a look at the video:
Obviously, one could argue if BigDawsTv really wanted to “give back,” he could have given away things that might actually be useful instead of some overpriced (though totally rad) sneakers. However, there’s certainly value in simply putting smiles on faces. And he definitely does that.
