YouTube star Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson is touted as the site’s most generous creator, known for dropping serious cash on wait staff, small-time streamers, and students – but this time, he’s helping out his own flesh and blood.

To the surprise of many fans, MrBeast announced that he had a brother, who was starting his own YouTube channel to follow in his footsteps on August 25.

However, sending him subscribers wasn’t enough – instead, MrBeast decided to give him the gift of cash, dropping a whopping $100,000 on his little bro to start up his own YouTube channel and 24 hours to spend it all.

MrBeast and crew followed his brother (going by the name “MrBro”) around Best Buy, where he spent over $30k on production equipment, as well as a few gifts for his editors.

The group even went to a car dealership to spend more dough, where he dropped another $26k on a Dodge Ram pickup truck.

Of course, the crew had to take a break from all that shopping with an expensive meal – and expensive meals require equally expensive tips, with MrBeast tipping $700 in dollar bills to their waitress.

As many know, it takes more than mere money to make a successful YouTube channel, with MrBeast admitting that he’d even given his little brother five employees, a warehouse, and office space, as well as creating his thumbnails and helping him think up content.

This understandably puts a lot of pressure on the up-and-coming YouTuber – which MrBeast made sure to point out.

MrBeast, YouTubeMrBeast reminded his little brother that he’d given him all the tools to succeed – now, it’s up to him to make a profit.

“I’m shouting you out and giving you a million subscribers,” he explained. “Literally, all you have to do is not suck, and you should be fine.”

MrBro has already released three videos on his channel, which boast over one million views in total, with his channel reaching over 600k subscribers at the time of writing – despite only being a month old.

It looks like MrBeast’s “secret” brother isn’t so secret anymore – and he’s building the Beast family empire one hilarious video at a time.

As long as a creator has the feature switched on, users are able to download TikTok videos right from the app onto their phones for later reference – but TikTok has made the process very simple.

While you can browse through any videos you’ve liked by accessing the tab in your profile, TikTok’s current lack of a save folder system like Instagram means searching for a particular video you saw a few months ago rather difficult.

Whether it’s a recipe for a pasta dish you only now have found the time to make or a tutorial for that TikTok dance that you can’t quite grasp, sometimes it’s easier to have it tucked away in your camera roll for easy access.

TikTok has become a hub for all sorts of viral trends.

Fortunately, TikTok has a feature installed natively within the app that allows you to save a video to your camera roll in just a few steps – providing that the creator of whatever video you’re trying to download has a public profile, and allows people to save their videos.

How to save TikToks to your camera roll?

  1. Locate the video you wish to download.
  2. Press and hold the screen to activate the menu.
  3. The top option should be ‘Save Video’ with a download icon next to it – select this button to download the video to your camera roll.

There is also an alternate way to access the ‘Save Video’ button, though both methods produce the same results.

Essentially it’s just a case of whatever’s more convenient for you, as the most frequently used menu differs from user to user.

  1. Locate the video you want to save.
  2. Press the arrow on the sidebar to open the ‘Share’ menu.
  3. At the bottom row of icons, there will be a circle with a download button in it. Tap this to download the video.

It’s important to note that the username TikTok trademark will appear throughout the video, but this is to ensure that people do not steal other people’s content and claim it as their own.

The feature is super useful for when you don’t want to lose a specific TikTok amongst the thousands of videos that you like.
