He Was Sitting on the Sidewalk Playing Guitar When Two Strangers Approached Him and ‘Blew [His] Mind’

A street musician was playing his guitar outside a Texas grocery store when something unexpected happened: two passers-by stopped and joined him for an impromptu performance.

Footage of the magical moment, uploaded to Facebook by an individual who witnessed the scene, has since taken the Internet by storm, achieving over 2 million views on YouTube in just days.

“I was walking to Kroger and saw this guy playing a song,” said Jaime Tatos Maldonado, who uploaded the video earlier this month. “It sounded good so I decided to record it.”

“By the end of the song three guys started jamming,” he continued. “This truly is music in its simplest form.”

Viewers on YouTube overwhelmingly agree.

“This is truly beautiful,” one individual commented.

“Wow,” echoed another.

The guitarist, Jesse Rya, later turned to Facebook to describe footage of the scene going viral.

“Sooo, some people recorded me jammin [sic], while some other pople felt the vibes,” he wrote. “Then s*** got real!”

Rya also responded to accusations that the video was a staged stunt.

“Just for the record,” he wrote, “it’s not a Jimmy Kimmel setup and I do not know the other two gentlemen in the video. You would be surprised how much music flows in the streets of DFW!”

“I know it blow my 2 [sic]!” Rya added.
