MrBeast is a ride-or-die YouTuber, and by that, we mean he knows exactly what he’s doing on his channel in the event of his death.
Seriously, check out his bizarre idea here:
Yep, in the last few days, we’ve found out a lot about the popular content creator, from the one billion dollar offer on his channel to the death video he’s roped all his friends into.
And it’s pretty full-on, well, we should say hands-on – a joke that’ll make sense once you’ve found out about the video.
So, MrBeast caught headlines earlier this week for revealing that he turned down a ridiculous amount of money for his channel.
For those not familiar, the 23-year-old American star, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, is one of the most followed people on YouTube – with a staggering 105 million subscribers.
He’s had several huge projects in the past year, one of which included recreating the Netflix smash hit Squid Game on his channel.
With this in mind, it’s no wonder investors were interested in his channel, and were apparently prepared to pay a hefty price for it.
So much so, MrBeast explained one eye-watering offer he turned down during a recent appearance on the FLAGRANT podcast.
As the content creator told host Andrew Schulz, there’s been a fair few parties interested in purchasing his channel: “There’s people, not like official term sheets, but you know like people that would actually be able to afford it.”
“Like you know, ‘a billion dollars if we could own the channel and the companies’ and stuff like that. And I’m like, ‘oh that sounds enticing but I don’t know if I want to work for my YouTube channel.”
Yep, a whole billion dollars, and MrBeast wasn’t interested, which might just be one of the most baller moves we’ve ever seen.
But, his shock revelations don’t stop there, because MrBeast also explained that should he die, his billion-dollar channel would be up for grabs, and his friends just have to put all hands on deck – quite literally.
Joking about his death (we know, super cheery guys) the YouTuber said of his friends and collaborators: “Oh, yeah, they want me to die.”
“They do, because the second I die, yeah, Carl, Chandler, Chris, the three guys, Nolan, maybe, he’s a little newer we haven’t decided if he partakes yet or not […] they’ll put their hand in my Tombstone [and the] last to take it off gets the channel. Everything. 100 percent, everything.”
Not exactly what we’d imagined for a farewell video but, hey, he’s clearly doing something right with billion-dollar offers.
MrBeast went on to add: “that is happening, mark my words. I don’t even know if I’ve really said it publicly. I tweeted it one time, but I’m serious I don’t give a — how much you guys cry, right [his friends should] put their hands on the tombstone and give the channel to whoever wins okay? And don’t bully them for it they’re just doing what I want.”
And for a billion-dollar channel, we could maybe be convinced to throw our hand in the ring (tomb).
