That was a wakeupcall for many of us i think. Hope he's coming out of his situation soon.

inspirational video, i mean this guy is obviously not simple (if he is truthful about his qualifications) although perhaps hes just not trying hard enough to get a job to do with his interests, i dont know, but i guess thats the american way.

on the other hand, it shows the problem with britain today, someone who doesnt deserve help (coudlnt be bothered to learn in school / dropped out early ) can just walk into the job center and sign up for £200 a fortnight, and just lie his/her way through the "job seekers", and even get a house paid for by the government, its wrong. :(

So think before you judge

Nobody is secure from this..not even millionairs..so think twice when you see someone homeless. If you are rich enough..rather buy them a sandwich then talk about them.
They will be thankfull..more than others that got what they want O:)

Clean shaven, clean shirt and new backpack... very healthy for 4 months on the streets... #5 we should not need a fake video to show use that we need to help others, nor should we help them if they reject it.

Guy is stupid, it is not possible that there is no job. It is enough to earn $1000 and that's enough for normal monthly living. $500 for room and $500 for food and other necessities. Stupid guy is an idiot!!!

You have go to be really stupid to not see what is going on in the world. There is barely any need for humans to do anything soon of course people are losing jobs and there are barely any jobs left. You think that just because we have a desk job making a lot of money we're somehow better than others? This is right now. In the future there will be no need for us, there is nothing we do now that a computer cant do better in the near future. This leads back to the main problem right now, overpopulation. It is that simple. Far too many humans. Its pretty easy to solve the problem but nobody got the balls to do anything or dare. Once every decade someone comes along that changes everything, for the better or worse.

Some of you need to understand there are different levels of poverty.
It's hard to call this fake or not but from my studies I have learned that the times in America REALLY are that bad.
People with degrees are going under and all due to the greedy banking systems they put in place.

Yes ok, he might be clean shaven but that only means he was able to shave. Homeless does not exactly mean living in a dumpster and being dirty all the time. It's possible he has friends and family to help him out. That clean shirt may be his last one or maybe he is able to wash his clothes.
I wouldn't be too quick to call Fake just because of a few minor things. America is currently facing a depression not seen since 1929.
my 2 cents

i'm an architect and unemployed from May 1st, if i hadn't been so blessed to inherit the apartment where i live i wouldn't be able to pay my mortgage, as many of my friends and colleges can't.
construction and architecture are going through extreme crisis so please no more doubting comments.

Say it this way my country is so bad right now they had over 200 people looking for a job in mc donalds in our small town , and out of that 200 there were people with PhD's and many had University education but becasue of greedy basterd compants like DELL who just bugger off to poland becasue they can get cheap workers there , well again capitalisim strikes again.

This whole bloody planet would be a lot better off with out money plane and simple, its hard to get it threw your head how things could work with out it but when money is the root of all evil , why are we still fighting with our selfs over stupid things like religion and who will be a slave for the best price.

seeing him from here, I'd say the Internet on free hot-spots is obviously a must, and London implements it for to be ready on welcoming the Olympic games in 2012, already.
