was the last time you practiced kindness do you remember
how it made you feel or even better when was the last time somebody you weren’t
expecting was kind to you when we’re lucky enough to share such a
special moment with a friend or a stranger it can leave us beaming
with joy and bliss for the rest of our day yet we’re so
focused on ourselves that we sometimes forget to look around with the intention
of acting with kindness we all know and recognize
how wonderful kindness truly is when it’s shared
we don’t often get out of our way to practice it and so today we wanted to
reward someone who does just that spreading kindness
unconditionally on a regular basis without expecting anything in return our
goal is to find a stranger somewhere in los angeles who can refer us
to someone in their life who stands out to them as a true
giver we then find a way to surprise and reward them with a 24-hour
transformation of a part of their home that needs it
the most and so matamar and i walked out on the streets of los angeles to start
looking for that unconditionally kind stranger
thomas for some reason is so excited i read an
article that said excitement and nervousness actually similar parts
of the brain so if you’re nervous you can make yourself excited
ladies and gentlemen we’ve got brain hacker thomas bragg
he reads articles i read about it in a book
we’re gonna go and try and find a stranger today who is gonna help us lead
to another stranger who’s home we will renovate we’re back at it again
let’s do it some people have been wondering why
we’re not uh all three uh all the time in episodes and the
reality is we’ve decided to sometimes divide and
conquer so this year one of our goals is to make sure that we
film more all of us together wow hey man good question no no
okay this is off to a great start off to a great start where are the strangers at
oh guys okay we get it dude excitement is here it’s the same thing no i’m
nervous where are we going right now there’s
literally why is this how is this a good idea let’s go to the desert
something in my heart let me hear did you hear that no she said something
about someone being kind i’m not even joking what do you guys do how are you a man
what’s your name my name is coach irma i love your energy so much thank you
we’re doing a project around kindness and we’re going around asking people we
were doing videos and commenting on kindness and love and because we’re
literally here to do that when i walked past you and i was like wait hold on
guys i think her so the question is who’s someone in your life that gives
unconditionally and expects the least i would have to say i
have a young lady named brandy she is a student of ours she’s gone her
second uh 100 miler she finished in 39 hours and is she’s
selfless always gives gives gives kids she’s a
teacher she works with kids that are
underprivileged and she’s just a gem wow well
basically what we’re trying to do is to try and surprise a stranger by
remodeling their home in a way that could get them to a place
of just feeling like their home is is a sacred place we would love to pay
her a visit yes and propose the idea of letting us
go into her place and renovate it in 24 hours
let’s do it oh now it’s on can we invite you guys to my gym yeah
she comes every single morning she usually gets there at five or six am
okay i know so here we go oh my god what just happened hell yeah
this stuff just happened you can’t script it well mission accomplished in
30 minutes uh ammar you were right about the location early morning surprise it’s best way to
start the day i can’t think of anything better
oh yeah yeah so we’re just coming out hot just three
dudes fully dressed in the gym yep with a camera surprise hi everyone my name is amar we have a
youtube channel called yesterday so we went out on the street
asking strangers who’s the kindest person you know
one of the strangers that we went up to on the street was irma and she said
oh brandi and she proceeded to tell us a little bit about your story
and we were just blown away so the actual goal of this episode is for us to
challenge ourselves to upgrade a stranger’s home in just 24 hours we would love to come give you a visit
if it works with your schedule it will work my mom we are about to step into brandy’s home

because of you the quality that brought us to
brandy’s kindness and i’m sure she got that through you give
give and give more that’s right thank you so much of course
you guys are awesome we love you we love you living with kindness on a daily basis
can have a much larger impact than you’ll ever
realize it grows as a ripple effect and will most likely inspire the person you
just helped to pass it forward in our case we just
wanted to make sure that an outstanding person and her mother got rewarded for
the kindness she spreads into the world and in fact we’ve been seeing more and
more of this happening in the yes fam community this weekend a group of people
from the yes fam flew out of stephanie and edgar to surprise xavier’s mother at
the restaurant as she manages and on the other side of the world
yes fam india and yes fam pakistan held a meet up together
despite political tension at the border to show unity and compassion
for each other as a community you guys are actively creating that positive
ripple effect spreading across the world and we feel
inspired by all of you every single day so to pass the spirit
forward we’re challenging you to go out into a random act of kindness to either
a family member or a stranger or a friend make sure you take a video
of you doing it then tag yes theory and seek.discomfort on instagram and we’ll
choose one of you to get a 400 gift card for seekdiscomfort.com get
started on that positive ripple effect and we will see you
next week


  1. Matt I know you probably won’t see this but I feel like I need to say this in order to help. Please don’t put ur feet on the dash, if god forbid an accident happens, it could make the accident ten times worse. A potential non fatal accident could turn fatal.

  2. What is even more special is that she's a black woman who runs long-distance. She's part of an insane minority. Like >1%.

  3. Pleeeeeease…Amar come to Kenya. I will host you. do one travel without money in Africa (Kenya). I will personally come looking for you

  4. Whatever the subject of the YesTheory videos, I ALWAYS end up crying when watching 😅 Guys you are the best, wish I could meet you and share your crazyness/kindness. Love from a Frenchie in Europe (currently Munich just in case you want to visit 😋😉)

  5. This was a wonderful and beautiful thing that Yes Theory did for this kind and wonderful family. This is part of what made me initially start watching your videos was all the love and kindness that you show when there is so much negativity around. Yes Theory has a wonderful platform of showing the best in people and bringing them together. Please continue to keep up the great work and videos that you so wonderfully share.

  6. You guys said you are going to "remodel her house"… you just brought a bunch of power consuming items and put them in her back yard.
    I would be highly disappointed…. and then the power bill comes in.

  7. You receive so much more when you give! I love this channel because it’s so authentic and amazing! Love ya all 💙💙💙

  8. Damn you guys! I checked out ONE video and now I’m f**king addicted…and subscribed. Thanks for messing with my free time!

  9. The brief second of Steffan waving the American Flag at 9:23 is so satisfying to watch. I was expecting him to scream "America" the entire time.

  10. I love these videos… My heart gets overwhelmed an it makes me tear up. You guys are amazing keep changing the world ❤️

  11. Here’s an easy random act of kindness most people are able to do but often forget about: pay for the person behind you in the drive thru. When ever I go to Starbucks drive thru or In-N-Out, for ex, I always ask to pay for the order behind mine. I don’t know if the person carries it on, but I know my intentions were good and I did a kind thing. ❤️

  12. Hey guys. Greetings from cyprus. I have a real challenge for you. Come to cyprus , let me take you to a cypriot tavern where they serve real cypriot food , and try to make it until the end of the night.. the dishes are toooo many , too rich, too fattening, and the cypriot cusine is the richest and most ancient cusine in the world.
    Ps.. the dishes are served with traditional cypriot wine straight from barrels. Cyprus and greece literally invented wine , so our wine is ancient , thick , tasteful, and oh boy does it make you drunk.. also you can tour cyprus at the same period. Our civilisation goes back until 3000 bc where people where building brick houses with fireplace when other people where living in gaves.. cyprus.. google it.. you won't miss.. promise.. ask ammar.. he's Egyptian.. right next door from cyprus.. he'll tell you..

  13. Pleaaaaaase come meet me at my city (Orizaba, Veracruz, México).
    Please, ILY guys so much, you won't regret it.
    It doesn't offer skydiving, it doesn't have a luxury car rental, it isn't even that big of a city at all.
    But it holds a place in my heart and I love it so much, just as I'm sure you will too!
    I'm 16 yo btw

  14. I wish you guys got to know Brandy more in this video and her story. Just kind of thrown into it and it's sweet, but there is a disconnection because we as the viewers didn't get to know Brandy.

  15. LOVE YOU GUYS but…buying some outside lawn chairs and string lights in a backyard isn't pimping out a strangers house LOL. Glad to see their smiles though!

  16. you guys are so amazing. everytime i watch one of your episodes i tear up. thank you for being amazing!!!!! <3<3

  17. i cried i have to say , the final part in which people from all parts are doing good things , seeing that young people have the possibility to change the world and seeing that they are taking their opportunities and taking responsability its realy somewthing that everyone should be happy for ! im 19 and everyone who goes there asking for something to eat gets it ! Because we are humans beings and we need to feel the power we have everyday is an opportunity to spread love ! You know my parents tell me that i help to much , mostly giving my time and my energy to anything people ask me , may parents say that i help to much and sometimes i loose too much , some in money some in not being recognized by the people i dont anwser them because i know that deep down im doing th rigth thing . My mind tell me that and my heart too and you guys just keep adding motivation to me . You know , if i may , have a responsability to keep on changing the world sometimes in small acts and some in great ones . "The ones who are crazy enough to thing they can change the world , are the ones who do "

  18. So I really like Yes Theory and I want to follow their path by meeting strangers and making friends. I have school and work friends, but I only hang out with them if I have to go to school or work. Outside of that I only hang out in my room watching netflix and working on school. I have decided I need to go out of my comfort zone by meeting strangers. So I was wondering if some of you wanted to meet up. I live in the Netherlands. We can have a fun time together and possibly make new friends.

  19. Some people in Asia and Africa live below poverty, children have to work for very little and in poor conditions. YES THEORY giving more staffs to people that already have. Fair enough.
