Grand Rapids, Mich. • A video chronicling the makeover of a Michigan homeless veteran has received millions of views online.
The nearly three-minute video featuring Jim Wolf of Grand Rapids had received more than 5 million clicks on YouTube as of Saturday. The time-lapse video was produced by community event organizer Rob Bliss with support from a nonprofit group that helps homeless veterans and others.
Stylist Anna Walt cuts, styles and colors Wolf's hair and trims his beard as he occasionally winces and closes his eyes.
After putting on a new suit, shirt and tie, he looks in a mirror and is momentarily taken aback as he utters "wow." He steps down, hugs someone and appears to say, "thank you."
