In an unexpected twist of fate, a Bali scooter driver became an overnight ‘millionaire’ after displaying a heartwarming act of kindness. The story unfolded when a tourist, Archie, lost his mobile phone on Canggu Beach and decided to enlist the help of GoJek scooter drivers in the area.

Archie set a reward of IDR 2 million for the return of his lost phone and documented the heartwarming search on TikTok. In a video with almost two million views, the drivers rallied together in the middle of the night to locate the phone. When one of the drivers successfully found it, Archie kept his promise and handed the man 20 Rp100,000 notes, equivalent to approximately US $120.

TikTok commenters flooded the video with praise for Archie and the driver, commending their genuine happiness at the successful recovery and reward. One commenter expressed gratitude, saying, “It may be cheap for you, but man thank you, you just made someone’s day. That was a lot for us Indonesians.”

Others lauded the camaraderie among the drivers, noting the absence of jealousy or hatred. The positive response continued, with users expressing happiness for the rewarded driver and drawing parallels between Archie and renowned philanthropist MrBeast.
