YouTube Pranksters Give Homeless Man An 'Extreme Makeover' (VIDEO)

When two notorious YouTube pranksters saw a homeless man standing by a highway in Florida, they decided it wasn't the right time to make a joke.

Instead, they did the opposite, and treated the man, Martin, to an "extreme makeover."

Vitaly Zdorovetskiy and Andrew Hales, who host VitalyzedTv on YouTube, hooked Martin up with new clothes, new shoes, a shower, haircut, and steak dinner. They wrote that they wanted to help him to prove that -- despite their reputations as jokesters -- they're actually nice people.

The result is undeniably touching. Martin is in awe of what's happening, and repeatedly thanks the pair.

"I'm so happy," he says while being bought clothes and a backpack. "I just can't believe this is happening."

Since Monday, Martin's transformation video has received close to 100,000 views. That prompted Zdorovetskiy and Hales to set up a fundraiser, "Martin's Campaign," where they hope to get enough money to have Martin's teeth fixed.
