A homeless man touched millions with his smile cracked at the blossom of fireworks on the night of Lantern Festival, which was captured by a photographer from Henan Business Daily newspaper.

The man was drinking from a bottle of iced tea that he had picked up off the street before he turned toward the fireworks display and cracked a big smile at the sight.

After the photographer uploaded the pictures on his weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter, the pictures received unexpected attention, topping the hot topic list on the website.

The man has been dubbed "smile brother" for his simple yet luminous smile. Millions were moved to tears by the sincere smile he showed despite his life status.

The paper is now calling on people to look for the man and try to help him.
