Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson has called out one of Fortnite’s biggest streamers, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, after a hilarious ad for a mobile game pitted the two personalities against each other.
The ad, which MrBeast found while scrolling through Instagram, promoted a mobile game called 'Pong Idle' (which appears to be a more extreme version of the classic Atari title, 'Pong').
The advertisement also featured pictures of MrBeast and Ninja just above two separate screenshots of the game, making it look as though they were competing against each other for the better score.
However, the crux of the promo was its blatant misnaming of the two internet stars; the advertisement asked, “Can you do better than him?” with "him" being either "Mike" or "Gary," rather than Ninja and MrBeast, respectively.

MrBeast Tweeted out a screenshot of the advertisement and tagged Ninja, asking for a rematch of their fictionalized battle in 'Pong Idle.'
“Hey Mike/Ninja, I want a rematch,” MrBeast wrote.
This is absurd! I would not be getting crushed THIS bad. LOL

Ninja has since responded to MrBeast's challenge, but he didn't necessarily take him up on his offer for a rematch; instead, Ninja commented on the apparent disparity between he and MrBeast's scores.
"This is absurd!" he wrote. "I would not be getting crushed THIS bad. LOL”
This hilarious interaction between the two internet personalities follows Ninja’s announcement of a special charity stream to benefit celebrity host Ellen DeGeneres’ The Ellen Fund, set to take place on the 23rd of November 2018.
