Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul debuted his anticipated Flat Earth documentary on March 20 – but the film wasn’t as audiences initially expected.

Rather than being a legitimate documentary on the Flat Earth community, Paul’s film played out more like a comedy sketch, featuring hilarious moments between the cast and an obviously scripted dialogue.

Paul opened up about the making of his ‘mockumentary’ in a video on March 28, where he admitted that the film had been created as an insult to his critics in light of his recent scandals.

“Part of the reason I made it – it sounds bad – it was kind of like a ‘fuck you’ in a way,” Paul said of the project. “…this was my way of tricking every single person who wanted to hate me.”

The YouTuber went on to explain the difficulties in keeping the joke a secret, claiming that he had to put on a charade as a Flat Earther after making his speech at the Flat Earth International Conference in November 2018.

“It was so hard to stay in Flat Earth character for so long,” he continued. “I was getting railed for being a Flat Earther.”

He likewise responded to backlash resulting from the film, which caused some critics to accuse him of taking advantage of the Flat Earth community for his project.

“My logic is this: if they’re willing to lie to themselves and lie to the world… I was willing to lie to them about something I really, really don’t believe in,” he explained.

Paul’s initial appearance at the Flat Earth International Conference made waves across the internet, with many believing that he truly believed in the Flat Earth theory.

Paul himself even teased the possibility in a podcast with ‘The Corridor Crew’ in January 2019, claiming that, “You two could be sitting in front of a Flat Earther right now.”

Logan has since expressed a desire to step away from YouTube, stating that he wants to “do more” and branch out into music, filmmaking, and comedy in an Instagram post on March 23.

While Paul teased a one to two year break from the platform, he continues to upload videos in the interim ahead of his boxing rematch with YouTuber KSI.

MrBeast is at it again, and this time, he treated three fans to a $100,000 Ice Cream Sundae. It was topped with a combination of exotic fruits, rare chocolate, and expensive sauces.

Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson claimed he’s losing “ridiculous amounts of money” on his main YouTube channel. However, that hasn’t stopped him from spending insane amounts and giving it all away.

He treated himself, two friends, and one lucky fan to all kinds of expensive foods in one of his latest endeavors. They enjoyed everything from $500 cheese to $50,000 steaks. But it all paled in comparison to the $100,000 Ice Cream Sundae, which they saved until the end.

MrBeast is all about giving back to his fans and followers.

It didn’t look too expensive at first. Instead, it looked like an ordinary but impressive mountain of ice-cream mixed with fruit and other bits and pieces in the platter. However, three were some hidden details and expenses beneath the surface.

“Each one of those ice cream balls that you see costs over $100 to make,” said the waiter. “We’ve [also] got chocolate from South America made from chocolate bars that cost $500 each.

It also included strawberries flown over from Japan, miniature candied peaches that cost $500 each, wild huckleberry sauce that costs $50 per spoon, and caramel sauce that cost $3,000.

MrBeast’s Burger chain is another sign that the man loves his food.

Still, that’s nothing compared to some of the final touches. It was topped with “a bottle of 99-year-old grape juice that cost over $20,000” and “butterscotch made with 50-year-old apple juice that cost $45,000.”

However, being the generous man he is, MrBeast said he “personally [didn’t] feel comfortable eating it.” Instead, he invited two more fans to take his place. He sat back and watched them gorge away along with the others.

The relevant part of the video starts at 10:30.

In the end, the three fans had the time of their lives and thanked MrBeast for inviting them along for the ride. 

It wasn’t his biggest giveaway by any means, but it was still something that they’ll never forget.
