Practice English Speaking&Listening with: MrBeast Spends Millions on Expensive Gimmicks

Difficulty: 0

- This video is sponsored by Rakuten.

Hello, my dudes, my name is Tiffany.

Welcome back to my series, Internet Analysis,

where I like to research and discuss things

relevant to social issues and media

Today, we're gonna be talking about MrBeast's content.

So recently, I promised a video

on what I call money-spending content

or spending money content, depending on your grammar,

because MrBeast spends millions of dollars

on his videos every year.

- The last to remove your hand

off of this million dollars keeps it.

300 gold coins right here.

Congratulations. (laughs)

$20,000, actually, in cash.

Buy whatever car you want.

- So, my introduction to MrBeast was the Twitter giveaway

with Twitter philanthropist Bill Pulte,

which you can watch my video about that

if you're interested.

But yes, that brought me to MrBeast.

I was familiar with his Team Trees campaign

but I had never seen his channel, and once I looked at it,

I was shook by just how extra his videos are.

MrBeast's whole channel is built on gimmicks.

In the beginning, he went viral for doing videos

like "Microwaving a Microwave Microwaving a Toaster."

He also had a nearly 24 hour long upload

of him just counting to 100,000.

I'm not gonna lie, my first impression was negative.

That is not my type of content, to say the least.

I cringed at a lot of the titles and thumbnails,

and some of them seemed very low effort.

Also, I noticed some videos that are definitely insensitive,

like "Homeless Man Buys a Lamborghini,"

in which MrBeast dresses up

as a homeless person,

as in putting dirt on himself and wearing ripped clothing,

goes and buys a Lambo, and goes to other luxury stores

just to basically see how the salespeople react. (laughs)

How would you react if you saw someone

you assumed was homeless trying to buy luxury goods, ah?

Yeah, not a great video,

but I do think the clickbait of it all

and just the entire subject matter

definitely trivializes homelessness

and makes a literal joke of it,

which actually conflicts with a lot of the work

that MrBeast does in his other videos,

where he actually tries

to help people experiencing homelessness.

So, we'll talk about that more in this video.

But first, let's just classify MrBeast's content.

In my mind, he basically has two main types of videos,

first being gimmicks and stunts,

and the second being spending or giving away money.

He also has a lot of overlap between the two categories.

There are expensive gimmicks.

First, let's talk about those gimmicks quickly.

Some of them are just, frankly,

absolutely ridiculous and wasteful,

like he put a million Orbeez in his friend's back yard,

or the time he destroyed his friend's house

and then bought him a new one.

(laughs) Content, ya know?

Destroying a literal house worth of items,

and then having to replace them, that's entertaining.

I get that it might be interesting or impressive

in the sense that we don't see this often,

because people don't do things like this very often,

but I am not a fan.

It's wasteful, and I just don't like to see that.

But, in looking at his channel,

it does appear that he has been transitioning

away from those type of gimmicks

and focusing more on this

very blatantly money-relevant content,

and he's made it clear

that he is very willing to invest in his videos.

He is willing to spend money

so that his videos can be intriguing,

go viral, and then earn him more money,

so he can continue making those videos.

Also, he has said that a lot of these sponsors on his videos

cover these stunts and expensive gimmicks,

so he has ways to pay for these things

and continue doing these types of videos.

So, as I just mentioned, a lot,

if not most of MrBeast's videos involve money,

and now I have divided that into subcategories,

first being random generosity.

He has a lot of videos, especially older ones,

where he just literally throws money at strangers,

or he'll randomly donate to twitch streamers, okay.

Second category is kind of just treating his friends.

So, his best friends get to be featured in his videos often,

and sometimes they participate in these spending challenges

or other contests where they can win prizes or money.

He had one video that was

"Spending $40,000 in an Hour Callenge."

And in the description of that video,

it says, "I only gave him one hour to spend $40,000

"and this is what he bought!"

But he actually gave eight friends, $5,000 each,

so I don't know what that description is referring to.

The title and everything is all definitely clickbait

because one person spending $40,000 in an hour,

I guess is more intriguing

than multiple people spending a cumulative $40,000.

Whatever, not to nitpick, but also nitpicking.

Still though, I don't like those videos because,

obviously, even just $5,000 for one person is huge.

Most people, $5,000 could do a lot for them,

so to see eight of his friends just go

and literally thoughtlessly buy stuff unnecessarily,

I don't like to see it.

I don't like the kind of promotion

of unresearched, spur-of-the-moment financial decisions.

I know that it's a video and it's meant to be entertaining,

and maybe some people do find it entertaining

because it's so surreal.

This doesn't happen to people in real life but hmm.

Anyway, third subcategory would more thoughtful

and time-consuming sprees.

This is more random generosity but in different forms,

like the time that MrBeast bought everything in a store,

but then he donated it all to a local food bank,

so that's quite a gesture of generosity,

but it is also a gimmick to get clicks.

So, what is the appeal of these videos?

I think that they are very aspirational.

I think that a lot of MrBeast's viewers

either would like to spend money like that

or they would love the chance

to be able to give money like that,

gift that experience to others.

So, when you watch his videos,

you get to kind of live vicariously through all these people

and imagine what it would be like

if you could be doing those things.

And as I said, based on Jimmy,

by the way, MrBeast's name is Jimmy,

based on Jimmy's uploads over 2019,

he seems to be leaning toward that last category

of those more elaborate, generous gimmicks

instead of just literally throwing money at people

or just giving stuff to his friends.

So, I have watched a lot of MrBeast's videos

in the past few days, and I did not expect this,

but I actually came to enjoy some of them, shockingly.

Allow me to explain.

At the end of 2019, MrBeast had a four-part series

called Last to Leave,

where the contestants had the chance to compete

to win a million dollars.

So, in each part, four contestants would compete,

and then whoever won that round

would advance to the million-dollar round.

So okay, some lucky people get the chance

to potentially win a million dollars.

Who gets to compete?

MrBeast said that to enter,

you could either buy his merch or follow him on Instagram.

And again, if you saw my Twitter philanthropy video

where I asked, aren't giveaways just a way to buy followers?

Except in this case, it's not even a giveaway,

it's a chance to potentially compete

to maybe win a million dollars.

But hey, it's still worth a try, right?

And first I was like, eh,

it's pretty shady to try to encourage people

to buy your merch just to get the chance

to maybe compete to will a million dollars.

That doesn't seem very cool.

But again, following him on Instagram is free,

and also, on his website I saw

that there was a free entry form.

So, anyone who was over the age of 18 in the United States

would be able to enter this contest.

Sorry, I'm crying, my throat hurts, I'm sick.

It hurts to talk, that's fun.

But first, let's give a shout-out today's sponsor,

which is Rakuten.

If we are gonna be talking about spending money,

let's be sure to get some cash back, baby.

You might be familiar with Ebates.

Well, they have rebranded to Rakuten.

New name, same great service.

Basically, Rakuten is the largest cashback site,

and they're partnered with over 3,000

of the biggest name brands like Macy's,

Ulta, Target, and more, to give you promo codes,

coupons, and cash back, all for free.

So, all you have to do is just click links through Rakuten

to bring you back to the store websites

and just do your shopping

that you were already planning to do.

So, for me personally, I do most of my gift shopping online,

because most of my friends and family live far away from me.

Lets say, for example, I use Rakuten to go Target's website.

My mom loves Target.

That is my go-to for her.

So, I'll pick her out something nice,

and then see what kind of rewards

Rakuten has in store for me.

It is that easy, and again,

you're already doing your shopping,

so this just helps you save money or get cash back.

So, you can join Rakuten for free

with the link in my description,

and after you place your first order of $25 or more,

you will get a $10 welcome bonus.

Also, Rakuten is sponsoring a $100 giveaway

for one of you guys,

so after you sign up for Rakuten

using the first link in the first link in the description,

you can click the second link to enter that giveaway.

Thanks again, Rakuten, now let's get back into the video.

Okay, so back to the series, basically, in each part,

the contestants just have to outlast their opponents.

So, there's last to fall, last to stop swinging,

last to leave toilet, and last to stop biking.

First episode, I will admit,

I was like, "Okay, this set is impressive."

And MrBeast joked that it was from

the "American Ninja Warrior" set,

and I was like, "It actually could be, though."

so, I'm watching the episode,

and all of a sudden he says to incentivize the coaches,

who are his friends there to cheer on the contestants,

if any of those contestants win the million dollars,

they have to give 10% to their coach.

And I was like, "Excuse me,

"I hope that the contestants were told this beforehand

"and not in the middle of the competition

"that they're already doing,

"'cause clearly, they can't argue with that."

I mean, they're already gonna have to pay a ton in taxes,

so it kinda sucks to lose another 100,000 right off the bat.

But again, okay,

we're competing for hundreds of thousands of dollars, fine.

So, in the first contest, the last two contestants

apparently lasted over 24 hours,

standing on this tightrope thing

with their arms up in those loops.

And I'm like, "Excuse me, hold on, did they get to eat,

"or sleep, or drink, or pee?"

I am concerned.

Maybe we are just supposed to suspend our disbelief,

and whatever, keep your head in the game,

but I have so many questions.

And then we continue, and we get to the toilet one,

which to me, seemed a lot easier to bear

because they had blankets, they got to sit, they got food.

Anyway, I just wanna know what happens off camera.

Did they get breaks?

Please tell us.

Maybe I'm the only one who cares.

And then, at one point,

a pizza delivery guy comes and brings everybody food,

and MrBeast tips the guy a fat stack of cash.

And again, he literally throws the money at the guy

like it's nothing.

And I was just like, "Maybe money is nothing to MrBeast."

I mean, again, clearly he has no problem

with spending money on his videos.

I'm like, "Okay, if I were working a service job again,

"would I be offended if someone threw money at me?

"No, not at all, I would be happy."

I'm like, "Honestly,

"just keep throwing money at me, that's fine."

By the way, each contestant

that doesn't end up winning their round

doesn't leave empty-handed.

There's this unicorn thing that comes out at some point

that's full of expensive tech stuff

that's worth a few thousand dollars.

And then, near the end, they try to get people to quit

by offering them up to $10,000 cash.

So, that's pretty nice.

At least these people who are potentially suffering

for 36 hours get something out of it, that's good.

And then we get to the last contest,

and I notice that, I think, only two,

maybe three of the 16 contestants were girls.

And okay, maybe MrBeast's is mainly male,

that might be it, but I just think, "Hmm."

It's not like these are strength competitions,

they're just endurance tests.

You'd think that girls would be just as capable

of hanging out or sitting on a toilet for many hours,

but I digress.

Okay, so what were my main takeaways

from watching these four episodes,

which were hard to get through?

They were very boring.

Okay, what the actual contestants are doing

in the competition is just endurance,

so it is not entertaining to look at.

There's nothing going on.

So, I guess to try to keep the videos entertaining,

Jimmy and his friends just kinda mess around

and do their best to do things that are funny,

which isn't much, but it's something.

(heavy metal music)

- [Man] Nope.

- Ah, right there, Jake, you got touched. (man screams)

- But, I did have a few highlights.

My favorite moments were usually

near the end of each challenge

where people are really getting exhausted,

reaching the end of their rope.

I was surprised to see

a lot of the contestants get emotional, especially the men.

Not to stereotype, but typically,

we don't see a lot of men willing to cry on camera

when they know millions of people are gonna see it.

Maybe that's the exhaustion speaking.

Either way, it was sweet to see.

- Oh my gosh, please tell me he won.

- Yeah, bro. - Yeah, he did,

he got the dough.

- Oh my goodness.

- I did it for you, bro,

'cause I know this means a lot to you.

I know its gonna make our lives a lot better

if I can win that one mill.

I'ma do it for us though.

I love you.

- Dang, I'm crying now, oh my goodness.

- It was nice to hear the contestants talk about

the meaning of what that prize money would be to them,

and how it would affect their life and their families,

and how they could help people.

So, those moments, I was like,

"Wow, yes, give us more of this, please."

Now, here's a quick tangent about game shows,

because essentially, this whole series is a game show.

It's a YouTube game show.

By the way, fun fact, after World War II,

in early television, there were shows called misery shows,

which basically just exploited

the pain and suffering of post-war families.

A lot of these shows,

you would have the mother come onto the show,

and she would have to tell a sob story,

their really terrible situation,

in order to try to win the support of the audience

so that she could win prizes

and potentially be able to help her family in some way.

- [Host] Mrs. Birch has a boy who's 13

and he has cerebral palsy.

She would like a wheelchair and a special bike for him.

She was working, but it's impossible for her

'cause she had a little operation.

So that's what she'd like, a wheelchair and a special bike.

Your applause for candidate number one!

(audience applause)

Thank you very much, thank you.

- So, if you did have the opportunity to go on a TV show,

and yeah, you had to share all of

your most vulnerable stories,

people would be willing to do that.

I'm sure a lot of you watching would be willing to do that,

to just have the chance to potentially be able

to make your family's life better.

I'm personally a big fan of game shows.

I used to dream of just being a contestant

on all the game shows.

I was like, "Oh, I'm just gonna get really good

"at auditioning, I'm gonna be great on camera,

"and then I'm gonna go win some prizes,"

which, hey, I might be still be open.

We could always try it.

But again, of course, you need a story,

whether it's literally "American Idol,"

or another talent show, or "Wheel of Fortune",

I dunno, "Jeopardy," you have to have a story.

There has to be something

that makes the audience support you, and root for you,

and want you to win that money.

We all just wanna see the underdog win.

So anyway, that's why I found it interesting

to see this in MrBeast's series.

I mean, it's a typical thing,

you play to emotion in a lot of different videos.

But specifically in this game show-like context,

that's really where I would say

the strength of the series lies,

is in those emotional moments,

because first of all, I'm a softy, I can cry at anything,

and I love to experience emotion.

But again, it just makes you have

a better connection with the contestants,

and it makes you more invested in the outcome of the series,

which ultimately encourages you to keep watching.

Okay, finally, the four parts are done,

we've had all the contestants,

and we have four winners from each,

and they compete in the final video to win $1 million.

The million dollars is literally in a cube,

and they just have to keep on it,

and the last person to be able to continue doing that wins.

Spoiler alert, Mark won.

I'm not gonna make you guys watch

guys keeping their hand to a thing.

So anyway, congratulations Mark.

Then he had to give 100,000, right off the bat,

to his coach, and another $50,000 that he had promised,

if he won, to give to another contestant.

So now, he has $850,000, cash baby.

And I thought that was it, but wait, there's a next video.

Spending a million dollars in 24 hours.

Excuse me, I didn't know

they had to spend all the money in 24 hours.

That is ridiculous.

But of course, I'm gonna watch it.

Also, again, to be technical about the clickbait,

technically he's spending $850,000 in a day,

but still, whatever.

I am in the universe of MrBeast now and anything he says

in his clickbait thumbnail and titles goes.

I'm gonna quickly go through the things

that Mark bought in his day of spending.

He had a $24,000 shopping spree buying tech and gifts

for his friends and family.

Then he bought two cars, a GMC and a BMW

for $100,000, yikes.

Immediately, I was like,

"Well, what about longterm costs,

"what about repairs, insurance?

"These are brand new, expensive cars."

He then bought a $20,000 ring for his wife.

So, then they visit Mark's house.

- So, this is where you currently live.

- Yeah, this is my room.

This is where me and my wife sleep,

and see, there aint no room at all.

- [MrBeast] You can't even open the door all the way.

- And I immediately noticed the sad music

that they put in the background while they were showing

how small Mark's room is,

and the fact that his cousin sleeps on an air mattress.

- [MrBeast] Your little cousin sleeps on an air mattress?

- [Mark] Yeah, and he popped it, so it's flat.

- And I get that this is supposed to be an emotional scene.

This is supposed to be kind of showing the lows

right before the highs,

because we know that he's about to get a new house

and have new stuff,

and this isn't gonna be his life situation anymore.

- Can I just say,

I'm super glad you won the million dollars, I really am.

The more you show us around, the more I'm like,

"Thank God you won the million dollars."

- Would it be better if he just omitted that,

and didn't acknowledge the reality

of where mark was coming from?

I don't know, let me know how you guys feel about it.

Is there a good way to do this?

So yes, then they go and actually buy the house,

again, within one day.

Did they have time to do any research or shopping?

Buying a house in one day, terrifying.

They buy a house for him and his wife,

and I think possibly his sister and his cousin,

some other family members

are gonna live there as well, for $165,000.

Which, right away I'm like, "Wow, what state is that?"

- Man, this is crazy, bro.

- Man, look at you. - Man, this house.

- Stamp it, I want it. (clapping)

- Let's go tell the realtor then.

- Anyway, then they spend

another 30-something thousand dollars in furniture,

and another $30,000 something in tech for the house,

and Mark says that he's gonna start a Youube channel

so they get him decked out with some YouTube equipment.

So, overall, this video so far,

spending a million dollars in 24 hours,

I am just overwhelmed with the fact that

how reckless this spending is.

It pains me to see someone dropping

so much money so quickly.

I would not want to make these major decisions

with no time to think.

I could stand and compare vacuums in Target for an hour,

trying to make sure that I get the right one.

So, yeah, spending a million dollars in a day.

They would have been able to save a lot of money

if he was able to do more researching

and shopping around and stuff.

They could have been a lot more thrifty,

but clearly, this whole process

and the gimmick of spending everything in 24 hours

is part of the video, part of the agreement.

So, it must have been a requirement to do so,

to be able to win this prize.

PS, Graham Stephan did make a video about this,

and I thought it was really good.

Of course, Graham's channels are all about money

and personal finance, and he doesn't like to spend any money

if he can avoid it.

I really like that in that video

he's not just roasting the guy for spending money,

because again, anybody could do that,

but he does understand and recognize

that this is for the content, therefore Mark didn't really

have much choice in it other than what to buy.

So hey, go wild.

However, I still believe that overall,

this video is promoting reckless, unresearched spending,

which I would obviously not recommend anyone to do.

I think even if you have a huge budget, even if you're rich,

everyone should take the time to think about things

and try to find better deals,

and reconsider what's really a necessity,

or what's gonna improve your life,

and what you just think is cool on a whim,

and then you buy, and then you never really use,

or need, or appreciate.

So then, what about taxes?

Okay, this has been a concern of mine

about all of MrBeast's gifts,

because obviously, he gives money and things

to people all the time,

and typically, if you receive a prize,

you have to pay taxes on the value of that

at your same income tax rate.

So, for example, again, with game shows,

say you win a new car.

There's no way to say you won a new car

and not use that voice.

You would have to pay taxes on the car.

So, if you won the car and cash,

the cash could help you pay for the tax on the car,

if that makes sense, but if you just won the car,

for example, you would either have to accept the car

and just pay the tax out of pocket if you have it,

or you could sell the car

and then pay the taxes with that money,

and then maybe buy a cheaper car,

or you could just refuse the car.

I dunno why you would do that, but maybe you would.

So, my question is, can MrBeast's winners

handle the taxes on these prizes?

According to this clip

from "The H3 Podcast" that Jimmy was on,

he said that he does cover the taxes for the gifts,

so I hope that that is true.

It would be really good to know

that he's not screwing people over.

And the great thing is, in this video,

spending a million dollars, they do sit down at the very end

and talk about these other numbers, like taxes,

the entire amount that they need to set aside for that,

and also, I think he set aside money for investing,

and then he gave Mark

some money for other expenses and things so,

again, it is clickbait.

He didn't literally spend

a whole million dollars in 24 hours,

but his whole part of the 850,000 was accounted for

by the end of the day.

But I was really, really glad to see,

again, the fact that they met with a financial planner,

or a CPA, maybe both, and went over

and explained everything to Mark

because winning a lot of money all of a sudden

can be very overwhelming,

and a lot of us don't have a lot of financial knowledge

and don't understand these concepts

because they can be very confusing.

So, it is good to know

that he was taken care of in that sense.

- One of my goals for this video was just to make sure

that you don't get screwed over.

I genuinely think you will do fine.

If you ever need anything, just let me know.

- Thank you, and I appreciate everybody.

- So, continuing on,

aside from the questionable financial decisions,

I did really enjoy this episode.

It was really sweet to see Mark so excited

to be able to buy so many things for his new life.

And the first thing he wanted to do

was get gifts for his friends and family,

and that was really sweet.

Did I cry?

Of course I did.

I also think that this episode was just actually

very similar to home makeover type of shows,

when you see a family living in a place that's too small,

they need help.

And then, HGTV shows up and, here you go,

a new house, new stuff!

I love those shows.

However, again, similar to those shows,

and as I've mentioned before, we need a story.

We need a tragedy to make us root for you,

to make us believe that

this family deserves the prize, whatever.

So, in some ways, those kind of home makeover shows

definitely do exploit poverty

and these really tough, tragic situations,

but also under capitalism, it's like,

okay, if you can essentially sell your sad life story

and be able to win something really valuable in return,

most of us would be down for that.

It's almost like the fact that we feel compelled

to use and exploit our personal tragedies

for college admission essays.

It really sucks to feel like

you have to be vulnerable in that way,

and share the very worst things

that you've experienced in your life,

but it's what people wanna hear,

whether they are college admission officers

or casting people for a home improvement show.

You tell us the sad story, we'll hook you up.

We'll get you into that college, maybe,

if you're good enough,

or if your family's good enough on TV,

maybe we'll fix up your home.

Anyway though, most of us are fine with that.

Take my soul, give me things.

Anyway though, as the audience,

it is truly heartwarming and nice

to see people be able to upgrade their lives,

literally, materially upgrade their lives,

and know that those physical things

are going to make such a difference

in their life and their family.

I'm not a fan of over the top spending,

or overconsumption, or luxury goods generally,

but I do definitely know the value of comfort,

the safety in having a home that's fully paid for,

and cars that are fully paid for.

Everything that you need, not just to survive,

but to really feel comfortable and safe is all around you,

that is so valuable.

So, in that sense, MrBeast just gifted Mark,

essentially, a comfortable middle class life,

which is pretty profound.

- A week ago, I only had $5 in my bank account,

I didn't have nothin'.

I really couldn't feed my wife, I couldn't feed my sister.

But now, I'm able to provide for my family,

so this is a really, really good experience for me.

And genuinely, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

- I mean, yes, Mark still has to work,

and I'm sure his wife works.

They've still got other bills to pay, but essentially,

most of their major needs are covered for now.

At this point, I've watched the whole series,

I've done my research for this video,

you'd think I would be done.

(laughs) No, a video started autoplaying called

"I Ordered a Pizza and Tipped the House,"

which actually ended up being really sweet.

This was based on another gimmick, of course.

MrBeast ordered a pizza, the delivery guy arrived,

and then, they asked if they could pay him

to move some furniture, but the guy doesn't know

that the house that they're moving all the stuff into

is gonna be his, ah.

So again, this is similar to those home makeover shows.

We end up learning a little bit more

about pizza delivery guy.

We learn that he has a kid and a dog,

and we're just so excited to see

how this is gonna change his life.

Jimmy's actually made a few other videos similar to this.

One was where one of his friends' family friends

was about to be evicted,

and they decided to buy him a place, and furnish it,

and give him the keys, which was sweet.

Again, I'm a sucker for all of these videos.

Give me the content.

By the way, one last thing that I can appreciate about this

is that Jimmy and his friends actually do all of the work,

which is good to see.

He could easily hire movers or something,

and not film that whole process,

but he and his friends actually go out,

they do all the shopping, they load and unload things,

they unpack, they put things together.

I was really glad to see that.

I think it's cool that MrBeast has the chance

to employ so many of his friends,

and they get to make these fun videos in the meantime.

Okay, so my overall judgment of MrBeast's content,

now that I've seen more of his stuff that's recent

and not just him counting to 100,000 or something.

First of all, I think it's fascinating

to see what YouTubers can do with big budgets,

because we don't often see YouTubers

spending a lot of money on their videos

in the ways that MrBeast does.

We often see creators

get rich off of their videos, naturally.

And then, sometimes we see their lifestyle inflation.

We see their houses, what they spend their money on,

but we don't really see MrBeast himself

flex about his own material possessions.

We see him giving away

and buying things for other people much more often.

So, I actually really do appreciate that,

and I can give him credit.

If you've seen my video on flex culture,

you'll know that most YouTubers are flexing.

So, based on his uploads over the course of 2019,

I think it's pretty clear

that he's still continuing to make videos

kind of in this direction,

in this realm of big, over the top,

generous acts of kindness, and I like to see it.

I don't know, in terms of content,

how entertaining it would be

if every single MrBeast video was another home makeover

gifted to somebody random.

I mean, I would probably still like it and cry,

but I do know that he does seem

to always change up his content,

so I'm sure he won't stick

with this exact formula for too long.

Final thoughts, first of all,

I wanna know where everybody is now, okay?

I need followup videos,

even though I think the pizza guy video

was only a couple of weeks ago.

I just wanna see how everybody's doing,

how's he, how's Mark?

I know that these people deserve privacy,

but I am a sucker for a followup,

so I hope maybe we get to see what happens.

Also, Mark was supposed to start a YouTube channel.

He bought all the equipment, and I tried to find his channel

and couldn't find anything,

so I dunno if he ended up doing that.

Anyway, generally, I am just fascinated

by how people spend their money,

especially when you get a huge amount of money

that you're not used to,

either in a really big raise at work, or an inheritance,

or winning the lottery, whether it's 50,000, 100,000,

or a million, or millions.

It is actually a very emotional

and stressful situation to be in,

though obviously we're all like, "Dude, I would take it."

There's a lot more complexities involved,

so I love to just hear people's thoughts and reactions,

and what they end up doing with that money.

By the way, please comment down below

what you would spend your huge lump of money,

lump of money, lump sum,

what would be your first priorities?

Would you buy things, would get your parents a house,

would you pay off your student loans?

That would be responsible.

My sister also recently told me

about a documentary about

what happened when a man experiencing chronic homelessness

was suddenly given $100,000 cash

to spend in whatever way he wanted.

I think it's called "Reversal of Fortune."

It's from 2005, so check it out if you're interested.

But kind of on that note though, that wasn't the lottery,

it is similar to lottery winners,

and I've been reading a lot about lottery winners,

so I might wanna make a video

about the dark sides of winning the lottery.

If you guys are interested, please let me know.

Okay, that's all.

My voice is gone, I'm gonna rest now.
