Twitter Helps Dad Find Rare VHS Tape For Son With Autism

The internet is really good at coming together and rallying behind one simple cause. Sometimes it's for something really stupid like naming a boat "Boaty McBoatface" and other times it's to help a father in need. 

James Dutton is the father of a 19-year-old son with autism. One his son's favorite things to do is watch old episodes of Postman Pat, a show on the BBC that premiered in 1981 and is still running today. Dutton recently went to Twitter to ask for a VHS tape of Postman Pat's Prize Postbag.

The internet was happy to help. 

Even after countless people offered their help, Dutton still did not have a copy of the VHS. 

Eventually a woman named Jill said she had a copy but she saw Dutton's tweet in the knick of time. 

Thankfully this story has a happy ending but now Dutton has a new problem. Sharing.
