Did we just witness a true act of generosity or just another staged video for the Internet?
That’s what we were wondering after watching this video that shows a rich kid apparently pull up to a random stranger and hand the man the keys to his Arctic White Corvette Stingray.
Hopefully for the recipient, this was for real. After all, who among us wouldn’t love to have a C7 Corvette given to us, without having to shell out monthly payments?
At least to restore our faith in humanity, we can hope it was a legitimate gift.
Even if it wasn’t, though, we don’t have to look far to find another such heart-warming Corvette-related story that we know for sure is true. The Internet featured a story Wednesday showcasing the generosity of General Motors and its employees, including many at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green who donated their time to do service projects in the community. That’s not to mention that the GM Foundation donated another $75,000 to 11 non-profit organizations there this week.
If he was really interested in being generous, maybe the kid in the C7 giveaway video should have just sold the Stingray and donated the proceeds to these non-profits, where the money would definitely be put to good use.
