A homeless man named Eric was pranked by a comedian and magician ... and ended up getting a new home.
They gave him a fake lottery ticket that he was able to turn in for $1,000. The homeless man was so touched that he offered to give the prankster some of the money back , and that convinced the comedian and his fans to do more.
After the video went viral with over 15 million hits, they raised over $46,000 to buy the man a fully furnished home and give him a bank account with $20,000 in it.
The man's rent and expenses are covered for a year, and they also found the man a new job.
