MrBeast Confirms That Next Project Will Outperform ‘Squid Game Recreation’
Ah, MrBeast. You can either love or hate him. Or continue living your life knowing that he exists. The YouTuber, whose real name was Jimmy Donaldson, is well-known for his high-budget videos with extreme challenges.
While he has published many different videos, his infamous Squid Games recreation (which at the time was accused of plagiarism ) is the most well-known. The video was published in November 2013. MrBeast spent $3.5 million building arenas, recruiting willing participants, and raising a $456,000 prize. At the time of writing, the result has been viewed 227 million. He claims that he is working on something bigger.
Yesterday (10 March), he posted a teaser on Twitter of what might be coming later in the year. He said that fans could expect “two gigantic videos” from him this month and shared a link to his website. He wrote, “Give me a couple of months, and I’m about to drop what will most likely be our greatest video ever.” “I have an idea bigger than our SquidGamevideo. It is so fascinating/insane it’s hard to believe it can be beaten (assuming we can do it, haha).
Fans have been hearing about this supposed Squid Game replacement. According to Dexerto, last year, MrBeast answered a question from Marques Brownlee asking if he had other grand video plans. He said he wanted to use everything he learned from Squid Game and apply it to his other idea. But if I told him, you would be dead.
It’s a great time for MrBeast lovers, I suppose. However, he caused quite a stir earlier this week when he accused TikTok essentially of spying on its users. He brought up the topic while speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. He explained that he felt like the app had been listening to conversations he’d been participating in. He hasn’t stopped posting on the platform – though you can’t blame him for not wanting a 34 million audience.
