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.
