Mr Beast planning insane collaboration with the US Navy

Immensely popular YouTuber Mr Beast has said that he’s planning on trying to borrow a ship from the US navy for a video, after they praised his content on the Navy’s own social media accounts.

Jimmy Donaldson, a.k.a. Mr Beast is by no means known for being lowkey. For his 44 million subscribers he has pulled out a whole host of bizarre challenges, with ridiculously high budget rewards.

Some of his most ridiculous videos include buying a whole island for £700,000 and having his friends compete to win it, giving one small YouTuber 1 million subscribers, and even giving away a house as part of an epic subscriber giveaway.

It seems as though no one would turn down the chance to collab with Mr Beast, his enormous subscriber base and brilliant ideas certainly make it an opportunity no one would want to miss out on.

Mr Beast is known for his high budget, crazy concept videos.

Jimmy has set his sights higher than ever before with this next video idea, however, becoming interested in producing a video with the US Navy after they praised his content on their Instagram story.

“Why do you always comment on Mr Beast’s posts?” one curious commenter asked them. They replied: “We like good content” and tagged the huge creator in their story.

This prompted Jimmy to tweet out the screenshot, along with the message: “The US Navy seems to like our videos (probably the weirdest sentence I’ve ever typed.) I’m going to ask them if I can borrow a ship for a video. Wish me luck lol.”

Under his original tweet he joked that he’d say to the Navy, “Hey Mr US Navy, can I borrow a ship for like two days? I promise I’ll return it!”

The possibilities for a Mr Beast YouTube video involving a ship are practically endless, and it’s no doubt that he’s already cooking up his plans for the video in the hopes they can arrange something. The Navy seem to have tried to advertise with other YouTubers in the past, so maybe this isn’t quite so far-fetched as it first sounds.

Mr Beast’s tweet about the crazy video idea has already garnered 71,000 likes, and 40,000 additional likes on his reply, so it’s safe to say that if the video were to be made it would certainly be a popular one.

Twitter erupts as Tommyinnit leaks Addison Rae in Dream SMP Minecraft server

Worlds collide and Twitter explodes as Twitch streamer Tommyinnit surprisingly leaked that TikTok superstar Addison Rae is in the Dream SMP (survival multiplayer) Minecraft Discord server.

Founded by the Dream Team, the private, whitelisted Dream SMP Minecraft server is a world of roleplay, drama and, above all else, entertainment. Familiar with their fair share of intriguing characters, fans are now pushing the limits of curiosity and excitement at the possibility that a mainstream, TikTok icon could be stepping into the Minecraft players, Twitch streamers and YouTubers’ arena.

Dream, the faceless persona behind the server, has a hefty 16 million subscribers on YouTube. Tommyinnit, the teenage Englishman and one of the world’s fastest-growing streamers, has 3 million followers on Twitch. Rae, who jumped into fame for clean dance moves, has 34 million followers on Instagram and 75 million on TikTok.

During a Twitch stream, Tommyinnit couldn’t contain himself as he noticed Rae in the Dream SMP’s Discord general channel. Expressing serious surprise and confusion, the streamer discussed her presence and quickly lit social media ablaze as fans debate what said presence could entail.

While gaming once felt like a niche domain, internet celebs like Rae and James Charles, or even US politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have all dabbled in the streaming world at the height of Among Us popularity. 

Unfortunately, Rae’s specific crossover experience in the Twitch streaming world was less than ideal as she encountered serious backlash for her Among Us session with Pokimane, Corpse Husband and, in what could now be considered a sneak peek, Dream.

Undeterred by that hate, it appears that Rae’s interest in gaming is unfazed. And, to the delight of those who prefer positive energy over hate, the Dream SMP fans seem to be taking this leak in a much funnier, confusedly entertained light than Twitch chat had.

It remains unclear whether or not Rae will take an actual role within the Dream SMP or if she was simply testing the water by joining the Discord. When Tommyinnit later tried inviting the TikTok superstar to voice chat, she ignored the request, prompting him to jokingly call her a “d**khead.”

With this leaked quasi-involvement already thrusting social media into a frenzied state, one can only imagine the potential for content if “Draem SMP” becomes a reality.
