YouTube prankster and comedian Vitaly Zdorovetskiy uploaded a new video Sunday showing the moment he fulfilled a former homeless man's dream to procure a new set of teeth.
Previously, Zdorovetskiy had met the man, Martin, when he filmed a video aimed at providing a homeless individual a makeover — complete with a haircut, new clothes, a steak dinner and two nights in a hotel. The goal at the time, Zdorovetskiy said, was to film a video where he made a homeless man's day.
Shortly after releasing the video, which now has nearly six-million views, Martin skyrocketed to fame and was apparently offered a job and moved back in with his wife.
But, while filming that first video, Martin had also expressed his desire for a new set of teeth and Zdorovetskiy ultimately couldn't turn a blind eye. He, thus, set out to morph Martin's dream into a reality.
"[H]e had one dream and it was to get new teeth," Zdorovetskiy said in his latest video. "I believe that everybody should have a chance for their dreams to come true."

After apparently reaching out to dentists in the area, the YouTube star was able to find qualified medical professionals to complete the procedure free of charge.
Zdorovetskiy then tracked down Martin on the same street corner he had originally stumbled upon him, to deliver the good news.
After informing him that he would receive the procedure for free, Martin burst into tears.
"I just want to get my teeth fixed," he said, sobbing.
After the procedure had been completed, Martin reflected on the experience.
"Keep Jesus in your heart," he said, encouraging others in poor situations to "have the faith that you will be able to overcome all your weaknesses."
