YouTuber David Dobrik is one of the world’s most popular online entertainers, best known for his high-energy vlogs and crazy stunts with the “vlog squad” — as well as his heartwarming generosity.

During his time on YouTube, Dobrik has garnered a whopping 16.9 million subscribers, due in part to his philanthropic acts of charity alongside his fast-paced viral videos.

Having given away cars, cash, and even entire homes to his friend group, the YouTuber is touted as one of the platform’s good Samaritans alongside names like Mr Beast — but this time, he took his goodwill to an entirely new level.

YouTube star David Dobrik brought holiday cheer during the summer season to his fans during a trying global crisis.

With the current global crisis in mind, Dobrik has taken a long hiatus away from uploading regular content as of late, considering that his videos would be far different without the help of his currently-quarantined squad of buddies.

However, he broke this hiatus with a video on April 24, where he gathered with a small group of helpers (including assistant Natalie and friend Jason Nash) to play Santa Claus.

He surprised random bystanders by gifting them gaming consoles and cash taped beneath frisbees as they drove down the street, sending the strangers into shock with random acts of kindness.

Fans were stunned by David Dobrik’s incredible gift, which he strategically hit in their merchandise orders.

That wasn’t even the most shocking part of his video: Dobrik even hand-delivered merchandise orders with a special twist, hiding a check worth $10,000 inside each package.

The YouTube star tasked the fans with catching their orders via a T-shirt gun for minimal physical contact, leading to a slew of humorous antics before they opened their packages.

That’s not all; Dobrik even went the extra mile and gave away a slew of free cars on top of the checks, sending one fan into tears.

His insane video quickly went viral on Twitter shortly after being uploaded, with fans across the net congratulating the YouTuber for his generosity and much-needed giveaways during a time of crisis for many.

 

While he clarified that he wouldn’t be uploading content until the world is in a better place, Dobrik’s latest video is warming the hearts of fans all across the globe in a time that has left many worrying about the future.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
