Before the year ends, MrBeast had a Youtube video that went viral in December. He and his friends invited few fans and relatives to be a millionaire for only a minute.
In about 60 seconds, all players will have the ability to buy anything they want until it reaches a million.
On the first player, MrBeast invited a man named Carl to shop several items in an appliance store. He gave him one million to spend for only 60 seconds, all items that will be inside his cart will be given to him for free.
Unfortunately, Carl wasn't able to spend the million dollars. Along with other players that went to jewelry store, gaming store, John Deere, appliance shop, etc.
Shockingly, MrBeast also made a running track to one player which needs to run fast in under one minute in order to get to his chosen car.
The farthest vehicle in the field is the most expensive, while the closest is the cheapest of them all. Interestingly, he chose Tesla, worth over $40,000, as his car.
