Superstar streamer Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins turned 9-year-old fan's birthday into an unforgettable experience by surprising him with a special video.
Very few things are more heartwarming than when a celebrity takes some time out of their day to do something special or heartfelt for a fan.
Such was the case on August 12, when Ninja sent a personal video to a Zach wishing him a happy birthday, and sending the nine-year-old boy into a whirlwind of emotion.
Zach turned out to be the nephew of 'SethDrumsTV,' a streamer on Twitch who put out a tweet asking Ninja to send birthday wishes, which ended up gaining a lot of attention on Twitter.
"If Ninja responds, this would be my nephew's best birthday ever!" he tweeted. "Can y'all help me by tagging him?"
The surprise kicked off when the cover over Zach's eyes was removed as Ninja's video began to play, sending birthday wishes to the bewildered young fan.
"Hi Zach, I heard that you are turning nine today, so I just wanted to wish you a very happy birthday," he said in the clip. "I hope you have an awesome Ninja/Fortnite-themed birthday party. Have a good day buddy!"
Predictably, the boy's facial expression was a mix of disbelief and excitement, as he looked unsure whether to believe that what he had just seen was part of reality.
"Were you like blown away right now?" asked his uncle.
"Yeah, I'm like shocked," he responded, with a stunned look on his face.
"My nephew was in total shock," SethDrumsTV tweeted. "It took him a few minutes to realize what had just happened. Words cannot begin to express my gratitude for Ninja taking the time out of his anniversary today to do this."

It was not only super-sweet of Ninja to have done this for one of his many young fans, but the kindness of the gesture was even more pronounced since August 12 was also the anniversary day of his and his wife Jessica Blevins' wedding anniversary, meaning he taken time from his own special day to share the love with a fan.
True, the video that Ninja sent doesn't have any monetary value, and it probably took him just a couple of seconds to record.
However, it will leave a permanent bookmark on this chapter of Zach's life, and create a moment of pure joy and excitement that the young boy will never forget.
