YouTube star Logan Paul is no stranger to controversy, following his international debacle in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ from early 2018 – but that isn’t stopping him from throwing a massive celebration in spite of his scandals, which required a jaw-dropping budget and a major group effort.
Logan Paul set out to host the “best party his city has ever seen,” in light of his little brother’s May birthday bash for rapper Desiigner – the footage from which cannot be released due to NDAs.
Therefore, Logan set out to throw a “phenomenal” party, which saw him send out personalized apology notes to his neighbors, should they decide to call law enforcement if their raucous festivities got a little too over the top.
Logan Paul’s summer Luau saw a massive budget of $75,000 – as well as 50,000 pounds of sand to turn his backyard into a Hawaiian beach.
The theme of Paul’s party was “Logan’s Luau,” which saw the YouTuber order 50,000 pounds of sand to recreate a beach in his backyard – as well as hire fire dancers, a tiki bar, and, of course, a working, mechanical shark.
Of course, no party vlog is complete without a montage, which saw a massive celebration that included more than a few crazy moments.
While Paul admitted that the $75,000 cost of the operation was “absolutely not” worth the Luau, he admitted that he was “glad” he’d experienced the party with his audience – but not everything was sunshine and roses at the celebration.
Vloggers Corinna Kopf and David Dobrik were caught on the set of Paul’s ‘imPaulsive’ podcast during the festivities, where fellow YouTuber Jeff Wittek allegedly made a ‘Suicide Forest’ joke at Logan’s expense, causing Paul to call him out during an episode of his podcast on June 14.

While the Vlog Squad has yet to respond to Paul’s callout, there’s no denying that his party was truly off the chain – although his expenses might put a cap on his video budget in the near future.
