Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is best known for giving away insane amounts of cash and orchestrating impossible challenges – two concepts that he combined in an upcoming video, which resulted in some confusion from bystanders.

MrBeast uploaded a video in late January, where he opened a store that sold a plethora of expensive items like HD televisions, game consoles, and other valuables for just one dollar each.

While the video itself went over well – especially for his customers – MrBeast wasn’t satisfied with the final product, later bringing the concept back with a major change.

Instead of selling items for just one dollar, MrBeast decided to give the products away for free, claiming that he “didn’t want people to not be able to afford stuff.”

However, MrBeast’s plan encountered some unexpected potholes, along the way – most notably due to some widespread confusion over the store’s operating times and location.

MrBeast uploaded a video outside of the store on June 6, showing a massive line of people waiting in line for a chance at copping the free goodies. Despite their enthusiasm, the YouTuber had to let them know that the store won’t open until June 7 – likely resulting in some disappointment from those assembled.

That wasn’t the only issue that MrBeast ran into with his new project, either: according to the YouTuber, some fans went back to the previous location of his $1 store from January, doubtlessly prompting some understandable confusion from its current tenant.

“The free store isn’t at the same place as the last one!” MrBeast announced. “Someone told me that there was a huge line at the old store. The owner of that barber shop is probably super confused lol.”

This wouldn’t be the first time one of MrBeast’s crazy videos has incited some curiosity and confusion from participants, by far; in fact, the YouTuber uploaded a video offering bystanders $10,000 in a briefcase without saying a word in late April, causing some bystanders to give serious thought before taking the cash.

MrBeast is one of YouTube’s most popular creators by far, boasting over 19 million subscribers on the platform as of June 6.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
