Reddit is good for a lot of things, mostly because it’s simply made of up a huge group of people. When a community pulls together it can be capable of some pretty incredible things, and in the reddit age, sometimes that is something that wouldn’t have been possible in years past.

One reddit user wanted to give his grandpa a gift by having an old Navy photo restored for him. He turned to the reddit community, and a bunch of people took a shot at it, with some working off the others’ work. Eventually, the community came up with a great restoration job, and the user recorded video of the moment when he explained the process and showed his grandpa the finished product.

“I didn’t realize I was so good looking…That’s fantastic!” says the grandpa before thanking the reddit community.”

After just a day, the video already has over 70,000 views.

Here’s the reddit thread for the story.
