What do high-profile celebs do after getting “canceled?” Go underground.
YouTuber MrBeast had claustrophobes heading for the hills after getting buried alive for every week for his latest stunt, as seen in a video with over 57 million views, which caused him “mental agony.”
“Please don’t do that at home,” MrBeast aka Jimmy Donaldson, 25, warned his 212 million subscribers within the caption to the underground hit.
The teenager has turn into the world’s hottest and wealthy YouTuber — reportedly earning between $3 to $5 million per 30 days in ad revenue — on account of his outlandish and increasingly expensive challenge vids.
These have entailed every thing from counting to 100,000 and having contestants navigate a “Resident Evil”-style “laser maze.”
In his latest jaw-dropping stunt, the social media sensation decided to get buried underground for seven days a la Uma Thurman’s character in “Kill Bill.”
To embark on this subterranean sojourn, the suit-clad Donaldson was first lowered into the bottom in a cutting-edge transparent coffin outfitted with food and water like some futuristic vampire.
Additionally they equipped the human cicada’s sarcophagus with cameras to each record the video and be certain nothing went awry.
Finally, Donaldson had his buddies use an excavator to dump 20,000 kilos of dirt on top of the coffin, effectively sealing the YouTuber beneath the surface.
“I’m entrusting my life to this coffin for the subsequent seven days,” declared Donaldson while in his hibernation chamber.
Despite the safeguards, the seven-day dirt nap proved psychologically taxing for the daredevil. He was reduced to tears several times during his voluntary entombment, including when he was being released from the casket.
There was also the priority that he wouldn’t have the ability to get up on account of blood clots in his legs from lying in a confined space for therefore long.
Thankfully, that fear never got here to fruition and Donaldson accomplished his temporary interment unscathed.
In doing so, he shattered the previous record he set in 2021 after being buried alive for 50 hours.
Together with performing hair-raising stunts, Donaldson can also be known for his many, and sometimes controversial, acts of philanthropy.
These charitable deeds include tipping a server a automotive, helping the deaf hear and buying up a complete neighborhood so his employees and family could live in luxury.
The web celeb was under fire recently after funding the development of 100 wells across Africa to offer clean drinking water to an estimated 500,000 people.
Many critics accused him of being a “white male figure” who was “monetizing kindness.”
Nevertheless, MrBeast refused to kowtow to detractors.
“I already know I’m gonna get canceled because I uploaded a video helping people, and to be one hundred pc clear, I don’t care,” Donaldson declared on X. “I’m all the time going to make use of my channel to assist people and take a look at to encourage my audience to do the identical.”
