With everything going on the world right now, there is an unmissable tinge of despair and hopelessness in the air. From the deadly coronavirus outbreak that's spreading across the globe to the ever-rising threat of another World War to the environmental crisis our planet is in the midst of, we all need a little pick-me-up or two from time to time. While our faith in humanity evaporates with every passing day, it is now more important than ever that we seek out everything that's good in the world and hold onto it for dear life.

Bringing you some reason to smile amidst all this negativity is a father-son duo with the most heartwarming video ever. In the one-minute-long video that's positivity and all things pure at its best, the father Omar Chavez is seen teaching his son Spenny how to shift gears. While this might sound like an everyday father-son bonding experience, this particular video is made special by Spenny's infectious joy and laughter. Spenny, who's blind and autistic, is seen having the best time of his life as he correctly changes gears guided by his dad's vocal instructions.

It's hard not to smile watching Spenny enjoying the ride in his dad's Subaru WRX STI, intently listening to the engine revving each time he shifts gears. Although he may never be able to drive a car by himself, the young man displays some great knowledge of the gear stick functions and some skills his dad seems to have taught him. Describing the video on YouTube, the proud Chavez wrote, "My kiddo loves going for rides in our Subaru WRX STI and I figured I would show him how to shift gears. As you can see we both had a blast!"



 

 

This heartwarming video isn't the first time the father-son duo have bonded over their love for cars. In a previous video posted by Chavez on YouTube, the doting father shows off just how much his son enjoys riding in the Subaru WRX STI and the young man's love for speed. "My son who is blind and autistic, LOVES when I pick him up in the STI. He even knows that its a turbocharged engine and what the blow-off valve does," Chavez gushed about his passionated son in the video description. "I like going fast, "Spenny says in the video. When asked why the STI takes off fast, the young boy replies, "Because it goes wroom wroom." Kudos to this father-son duo for their heartwarming bond.
