The video, which has received over 24 million views and 1.7 million likes at the time of this writing, captures Ferdinand's genuine compassion in action. He enters a room filled with prison cells and engages in a friendly conversation with an inmate named Boyok. 

What follows is a heartwarming prank orchestrated to brighten Boyok's special day!

Ferdinand initially playfully accuses Boyok of speaking ill of him behind his back, to which Boyok denies any wrongdoing. However, when Ferdinand questions other inmates, they join in the charade and confirm Boyok's supposed criticisms of the prison officer.

Unbeknownst to Boyok, Ferdinand had coordinated this ruse with the other inmates to create a birthday surprise. Ferdinand then inquires about Boyok's age, and the inmate reveals that he is turning 20. Confirming that it is indeed his birthday, all the inmates in the cells start singing "Happy Birthday" together. Simultaneously, another officer enters with pizza boxes, each adorned with a candle.

Ferdinand invites Boyok to make a birthday wish before blowing out the candle. Boyok expresses his hope for genuine repentance.
