Thanks to that video, and because of where it was recorded, two local groups are getting a big boost.

Flipdaddy's is donating $1,000 to the Ft. Thomas Lions Club and InfantSEE, which gives babies free eye exams.

"I just got barraged by emails, Facebook messages, everything," Flipdaddy's founder Bob Dames said.
