Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson and his crew got a special gift from YouTuber Zach ‘ZHC’ Hsieh that set the internet aflame after revealing an incredible (and expensive) work of iPhone artistry.

American YouTuber and philanthropist MrBeast is used to giving away lucrative gifts and straight-up bundles of cash at random to people he comes across in his videos.

But ZHC saw a perfect opportunity to make a change of pace by giving back to MrBeast and his friends with a painstaking commission that completely reinvented a set of five brand new iPhone 11 Pro Maxes.

ZHC YouTubeThe artist used everyone from spray paints to fine sharp blades to prepare everything he needed for the custom iPhones.

ZHC is a popular content creator who centers his videos on tutorials, challenges, and experiments all revolving around his talents as an artist.

Taking a charitable approach to his November 20 upload called “Surprising MrBeast With A Custom iPhone 11,” ZHC decided to apply his mastery with the pen to create a collage spanning multiple smartphones in honor of MrBeast – as well as his friends Jake, Garret, Chandler, and Chris.

Putting his own spin on MrBeast’s logo, ZHC recreated the blue beast in an astronaut suit hovering in space.

While the designs were meticulously created to include a starry background, multiple planets and the like, the YouTuber kept to a clean, simple artwork for the phones.

ZHC also included an extra bit of flair to the five phones that truly unifies it as a single masterpiece. When lining up the phones in a particular order, there’s a purple beam that lines up, essentially connecting each of the portraits.

“I’m not sure if you guys noticed this, but if you look closely there’s a purple and pink streak [spanning the phones,]” ZHC said. “Technically, you could say all the phones are one big piece.”

With the help of Garret, the artist got the reactions from MrBeast and his crew as they opened their phones and each was taken aback by what they uncovered.

They weren’t the only ones impressed, as the video quickly got shared to the point of racking up 2 million views in about a day.

Though MrBeast isn’t the type of person to let this act of kindness go unanswered, as it appears he gifted an entire house to a pizza delivery driver, but fans will have to wait until he reveals his philanthropic schemes.

Like most popular streamers, Shroud has been getting stuck into the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands grind, but although he’s enjoyed it so far, he said he feels like the game is “less immersive” than it used to be.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has taken the world by storm ever since it launched on November 23. Players have been hopping back into Azeroth to take the reigns of their characters once again.

Popular streamers like Mike ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek have been getting stuck into the grind too. He’s been very open about how much he loves the game and has streamed hours upon hours of World of Warcraft Classic. He even said he was willing to lose viewers to stream it.

Shroud has thoroughly enjoyed playing World of Warcraft for many years now.

However, Shroud isn’t blinded by his love and adoration for the game. He still has some criticism for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and MMORPGs in general, and he mentioned them in his latest stream.

“I feel like [MMORPG’s] and WoW, in general, have transcended into something completely different,” he said. “In the past, you [played] because you were immersed. You were leveling up your character. You were getting new items. It felt good to be more powerful and do better things.”

“Now I feel like WoW is like play with friends and kill some shit,” he said. “That feeling of immersion and truly having an impact on the world and your character feeling there has kind of nullified.”

“When I played vanilla WoW in 2005, I was 11 years old, and it felt amazing,” he said. “It felt incredible. It felt like I was in my own realm. I was in my own world. Now it doesn’t feel like that. That feeling is gone.

The relevant part of the video starts at 2:00.

It’s a sentiment that others have echoed time and time again. The consensus is that MMORPGs have been streamlined throughout the years.

However, it hasn’t stopped millions of players, including Shroud, from enjoying World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. 

Plus, despite his criticism, he thinks now is the “best time” for new players to start playing the game because the new leveling process is “really cool.”
