YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson has revealed why he locked himself in a prison cell for 24 hours for a YouTube video.

Donaldson, alongside friends Chandler, Chris and Garrett, headed into a jail cell for a full day, with the guys going through some tough conditions, including getting only six crackers and a bottle of water for their first meal, and trying to use the bathroom in front of each other.

The foursome were all locked in a tiny cell together, with four metal beds bolted into the wall, and one toilet for the whole cast to share.

MrBeast locked himself inside a jail cell for 24 hours.

The video uploaded to MrBeast’s YouTube channel begins with Donaldson getting arrested by someone pretending to be a police officer for “failing to upload three videos a week,” with the YouTuber pleading that he thought two was pretty good.

This led to Donaldson and his friends being sentenced to 24 hours in jail for “an easy video.” While time progressed, the boys were able to order in food so they could eat normally, and eventually began calling their parents and loved ones pretending they were really in prison.

All four managed to last the full 24 hours, with Donaldson's friend Chris claiming that the stint in jail was “the worst thing he had ever done in his entire life.”

MrBeast has become well known for his elaborate videos, including a recent challenge where he gathered 12 YouTubers and offered $100,000 to the person who could stand inside a massive red circle the longest.

Donaldson has also been a huge supporter of PewDiePie in his fight against T-Series to remain the most subscribed to channel on YouTube, even going as far as to buy billboards around his city urging people to subscribe to the Swede’s channel.
