ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Have you seen the viral video aimed at teaching a trendy clothing retailer a lesson? The Los Angeles filmmaker behind it wants you to join his effort.

Greg Karber posted the video on youtube after Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries said doesn't want plus-sized women or "not so cool kids" wearing his company's clothes.

The company also reportedly burns surplus or damaged clothes rather than donate them so they don't end up worn by the homeless.

Karber is buying Abercrombie & Fitch clothing at thrift shops and giving it to the homeless. Albany Salvation Army officials say that's a noble deed. Maj. Kelly English said, "I will applaud anyone who is willing to serve the community. If he's going to reach into his own pockets and buy clothes and give them out to people who are in need, wow, I applaud that all day long."

Karber is encouraging people around the country to do the same thing in their communities.

Here's a link to his video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O95DBxnXiSo
