Internet philanthropist Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson brought the net together to plant 20 million trees before 2020 — and YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg decided to check up on the project months later, discovering surprising results.

Mr Beast celebrated his 20 million subscriber milestone by launching a charitable project to plant a whopping 20 million trees, seeing donations from such names as Ninja, Jeffree Star, and even Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

After successfully reaching his goal in early December, the star teased even bigger projects in the future — but what about the results of his viral Team Trees initiative?

Mr Beast, alongside a slew of donators, helped the Arbor Day Foundation plant over 20 million trees before 2020.

PewDiePie was in the middle of a LWIAY video when he came across a fan suggestion in his subreddit, which recommended that Mr Beast provide fans with an update video regarding his tree-planting enterprise.

“Please, Mr Beast — the B to the East,” he joked about the matter. “Show us the trees!”

YouTube king Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg shared an update from Mr Beast’s viral Team Trees initiative from 2019.

Curious about the project’s development, PewDiePie checked his email for an update — and was pleasantly surprised by what he found.

The YouTuber shared a video from Team Trees uploaded on February 27, showing North Carolina park rangers and staff planting trees around Bladen Lakes State Forest, which had been affected by severe flooding from 2018’s Hurricane Florence.

Rangers explained that the Park is considered a high-risk area, as it is often affected by natural disasters that inhibit older growth — making Mr Beast and the Arbor Day Foundation’s joint initiative a massive help to the area.

Needless to say, it seems like Kjellberg was rather impressed by the Foundation’s efforts, giving a short congratulations to his fellow YouTuber.

“Keep planting those trees!” he urged.

Although he jokingly called the star a “simp” earlier in his video (thanks to his impressive Valentine’s Day gift for his girlfriend), Mr Beast and PewDiePie are on good terms, with Mr Beast having historically led the charge in his battle against T-Series in 2018.

Now, the YouTuber is creating even bigger and better content than ever before — and making the world a better place one video at a time.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
