Then Nirvan Mullick walked into the auto parts store to buy a door handle door his ’96 Corolla on the last day of summer for Caine. Then he went Canine’s Arcade and he was Caine’s first customer and he got a fun pass (500 turns) which was $2.00. After going to Caine’s Arcade Nirvan Mullick came back to ask Caine’s dad if he could mak a short film (because he was a filmmaker) about Caine’s Arcade. Then he decided to MUSTER up people for a surprise flash mob so people could come and play Caine’s Arcade and in the process he created Caine’s Day.
