In the clip, we could see what seemed to be CCTV camera footage from a restaurant. The old lady was seated all alone and had ordered a huge chocolate cake that was placed in front of her by the waitress. The lady then took out two candles and put them on top of the cake, lighting them up. She then started to clap and sing the birthday song for herself. In a matter of seconds, everyone saw that she was celebrating her birthday all alone. They joined in her singing and even gave her birthday hugs! The old lady was absolutely delighted and couldn't stop smiling on her special day being made a little more joyful.
Reddit users shared their comments and reactions in huge numbers. "Seems more like she's celebrating the birthday of a dead loved one," speculated one user while another said, "You win the internet today. I hope you live happily ever after!" A few others felt that the gesture by the customers at the restaurant was quite sweet and gave them hope about good people being out there. "I guess humanity isn't dead," said one user.
