Forget making it rain — a 29-year-old Minnesota man let it snow $1,000 in a mall on Black Friday hoping to bring some much-needed positivity to his own life.

While a choir sang Let It Snow in the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., Serge Vorobyov threw $1,000 in dollar bills from the fourth floor onto the crowd below.

He said in a video on YouTube he did it because after going through a rough year, including a "horrible" divorce in which his wife took his cat, he needed to do something positive.

"I just threw out my last $1,000," he says in the video. "I thought I'd just spread some holiday cheer."

Mall security, however, cited Vorobyov for disorderly conduct.
