Cowboys WR Dez Bryant Shows Up at Walmart, Buys PS4s for Everyone

Meeting an NFL star is cool, but having one buy you a brand new, state-of-the-art gaming console is downright beautiful.

That’s the scenario that occurred at a Dallas Walmart on Thursday night when Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant made an unannounced appearance and began buying PS4s for anxious customers.

The generous occurrence was spotted by TMZ, which reports that Bryant showed up around midnight and bought PS4s for at least six gamers waiting in line.

The store had received a shipment of nine PS4s for the console’s big midnight release, all of which Bryant purchased on the spot. The wideout’s arrival at the store was a complete surprise, according to a Walmart manager, who deemed the incident “a random act of kindness.”

Some of the lucky few who received free PS4s took to Twitter to share their excitement: 

my boy @DezBryant just bought me a PS4!!!!

Dope RT @BRedLove: my friend was at Best Buy for a PS4 and Dez Bryant walked in and bought one for her & four others

Indeed, while Miguel Cabrera had a custom PS4 delivered to him a day early, Bryant had to head to the store at midnight like the rest of us mere mortals. 

With that, Bryant will have to pick up his sticks if he wants to catch up with Miggy, who has a head start on Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack.

That being said, Bryant most certainly will be boom-headshot-yeah-ing on Call of Duty: Ghosts.

The Cowboys star wide receiver has a longstanding attachment to the COD series and tweeted out a wistful message earlier in the year about having to stop gaming to have surgery on a broken finger: 

Well I'm about to play black ops 2 for the last time in a long time lol

With that in mind, we all know what Bryant will be doing over the next nine days as the Cowboys head into their bye week.
