One of YouTube’s biggest stars, Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson, teamed up with NFL quarterback Cam Newton to break multiple footballing world records. 

MrBeast has grown rapidly on YouTube and is now one of the most subscribed-to in the world, entertaining fans through a variety of creative videos and challenges.

On September 3, the American and his crew starred in a video with NFL player Cam Newton, where they managed to crush multiple world records.

The team met at the Carolina Panthers Football stadium and quickly got underway in their attempt to break three world records. The first record seemed to be the toughest of the three, as MrBeast and crew had to catch a football between their legs from at least 35 yards away.


This record proved brutal as the catcher was covered in bruises from multiple attempts, but they eventually managed it after a string of incredibly close tries. The team screamed in joy as a throw finally connected, setting a new record at 39 yards.

Record two was an incredibly tricky one – catching an American football while blinded and in motion. This is something that would require an incredibly accurate throw, luckily for MrBeast, he had just the man.

Cam quickly got used to the distance and the speed of the moving target, and inched closer to a perfect throw by the minute, until he finally hit the target and one of MrBeast’s crew held onto the ball while blindfolded.


Again, the whole crew erupted in celebration, as they broke the previous record of 22.3 yards with an impressive 24 yards.

The final record saw the two parties switch roles, this time MrBeast’s crew was throwing and the NFL star was doing the catching. This record was a time challenge – the most one-handed catches in under 60 seconds.

It was an incredibly hectic one, as they had to complete over 48 one-handed passes in less than a minute. This would test both the catcher and the thrower, and one mistake could cost them everything.

After an intense minute, even the judicator had lost count of the number of catches and had to view the recording to make a verdict.

Everyone held their breath as the judicator announced his findings. A few catches were invalid, but the record was still broken with 51 catches, leading to an astonishing hat-trick of world records.

After a short celebration, the team gathered for one last group photo, a group hug, and an inspiring “deez nuts” cheer, before departing from the stadium as world record holders.
