David Dobrik always finds a way to make his short-form vlogs interesting and exciting, be it through pranks, wacky antics or, in this case, giving away thousands of dollars to unsuspecting random people.

Dobrik can often be seen giving away expensive gifts, such as cars or event tickets, to his friends thanks to brand deals from various companies.

This type of content has helped him blow up in recent years, and now he has taken that generosity to the wider world, giving money and gifts to random people across LA.

In his December 14 vlog, Dobrik and his Vlog Squad friends played out a couple of funny skits, including Dobrik hitting on his friend Nick Antonyan’s sister, Susie, and destroying the room they were filming in.

After this, though, David took out an undisclosed (but clearly large) amount of money from the bank before handing it out across Los Angeles.

He gave a large wad of cash to a fast-food waitress, bought car-full of flowers to hand out to random passers-by and also purchased a bunch of Apple products, including MacBooks, to a youth club in Burbank, to a chorus of screaming kids.

It’s almost unbelievable to think of the amount of money Dobrik must have spent to get this footage for his video – far in excess of tens of thousands of dollars if you only include the Apple products themselves.

It seems reasonable though – earlier in the video, Dobrik secured a brand deal with Bumble simply because his friend stated that she met her fiance on the dating app.

Though it wasn’t specified how much money he was offered, it seems pretty obvious that the figure was high given how much he was able to give away after.

In the midst of the holiday season, Dobrik was clearly in a giving mood, so you should expect to see some very similar content when Christmas day rolls around and he wants to make sure everybody he knows has an outstanding time.

It’s not yet clear how much David Dobrik spent to create this video, but there was evidently no expense spared to make sure the LA locals were treated very well and have their days made.
