As the two exchanged pleasantries, the man stopped to share what the real value of the moment was, despite Shaq’s generous gift. 

“It’s not the watch, it’s you Shaq,” he said.

The two exchanged “I love yous” before parting ways and thank goodness, some other sweet soul caught the entire moment on video. To date, it has already been viewed 2.4 million times. Check it out below because this one is guaranteed to keep you smiling.
