Social media star Logan Paul has officially called out actor Will Smith to participate in yet another bungee jumping challenge, after YouTube channel ‘The Yes Theory’ pulled off a similar stunt in late September of 2018.

Paul uploaded a video of an outdoor excursion with his roommates, during which he called out Smith in an humorous attempt at collaborating with the Hollywood star. The crew had ventured outdoors to go bungee jumping off ‘The Bridge to Nowhere’ in Azusa, California when Paul came up with the idea.

“Yo! I have a sick fucking idea,” Paul exclaimed. “We should get Will Smith and challenge him to do like, a bungee jump out of a helicopter.”

Paul went on to directly address Smith, adding that he should jump out of the helicopter over the Grand Canyon. However, Paul’s cameraman pointed out that ‘The Yes Theory’ had already accomplished the same feat – much to his apparent confusion.

While Paul was likely joking about his “challenge,” Smith’s bungee jumping stunt with ‘The Yes Theory’ quickly went viral across YouTube in a live event on September 25, 2018, and has garnered over 18 million views as of December 22.

The actor agreed to face his fears after being challenged by the YouTube group, admitting that he was “terrified of walking to the edge” of the Canyon during one of his visits as a child.

Smith’s unorthodox 50th birthday celebration landed him a spot on YouTube Rewind 2018, which quickly became the most disliked video on the platform.

Meet the TikToker going viral for saying “Charli D’Amelio” 100,000 times

A TikToker has taken over the internet for saying the name of the platform’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio 100,000 times in a row — and he’s not the first one to lay claim to fame in this manner.

TikTok star Devin Caherly has caught the eye of social media users around the globe after taking on a jaw-dropping challenge, which he announced in a video on November 29.

Claiming that he would say the name of Charli D’Amelio — the site’s most popular creator with over 101 million followers — 100,00 times, his quest soon became a viral sensation, with his original announcement video garnering over 309,000 likes at the time of writing.

Caherly kept track of his project by using an online counter, which he would press each time he said D’Amelio’s name. However, he didn’t ask fans to just take his word for it; he even live-streamed the entire ordeal, but it didn’t turn out as planned.

Unfortunately for Caherly, as soon as he hit the 999,991 mark, his counter suddenly reset, leaving him completely devastated (although we have to admit, his failure made for a pretty funny TikTok).

@devincaherlyI spent 18 hours straight saying @charlidamelio and right before I hit 100,000 this happens 🤦🏻‍♂️♬ original sound – Devin Caherly

This isn’t his first experiment of this nature, either; Caherly has also said Charli D’Amelio’s name for every ten likes he’s gotten, as well as every ten comments within a 24-hour period.

Caherly’s endeavors ring similar to those of massively popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson, who has also said the names of social media stars like ‘PewDiePie’ and Logan Paul 100,000 times in the past.

That’s not the only way in which Caherly is similar to Mr Beast; he’s also given out quite a bit of cash and gift cards for his 2.7 million fans — although we can’t say it’s the same as Mr Beast opening a free bank or tipping waitresses in legitimate gold bars.

Either way, it seems that Caherly has opened up quite a career for himself, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for this young creative.
