Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is known for giving away generous amounts of cash, as seen in his viral Twitch donation and “free store” videos - but now, he’s putting a different spin on his charitable side, by using actual gold bars.
MrBeast uploaded a video to YouTube on June 21, where he tipped waitresses using a variety of expensive items, including such goodies as gaming consoles, HD TVs, laptops, and even legitimate gold bars.
The YouTuber explained that each gold bar was worth up to $160,000 each - but he couldn’t give the full-sized bars away, on the outset.
Instead, MrBeast began his generous gratuity with miniature gold bars, which were worth up to $7,000 each.
“I know it’s tiny, but gold is expensive,” MrBeast humorously explained, going on to leave one of the miniature bars as a tip on top of a napkin which read, “$7K in gold.”
MrBeast and crew hopped from restaurant to restaurant ordering nothing but water (and sometimes breadsticks), leaving behind a trail of expensive items in their wake, which made one waitress “kind of want to cry” after receiving $1,000 in cash.
“I have tables to serve, I can’t cry,” another waitress claimed after collecting one of the $7k mini gold bars as her tip. “I don’t remember how to do my job.”
That’s not all: MrBeast even asked a pizza delivery man to pull over on the road, giving him one of the miniature gold bars as thanks for his service - a tip that the driver claimed would help him buy a new car.
Of course, the fun wasn’t finished, just yet. MrBeast went on to challenge his crew for even more cash, presenting them with an array of unsavory foods for a chance at winning the big bucks.
This wouldn’t be the first time MrBeast has gone out of his way to make someone’s day, by far.
The YouTuber has a wide variety of such videos, and even hopes to open a homeless shelter or food bank in the future, although no concrete plans for the venture have yet been revealed.
