A YouTube account called “Dad, How do I,” in which an American dad offers advice on how to do things typically taught by someone’s father, has gone viral for his heartwarming content, becoming an overnight internet sensation.

It’s alleged that Rob Kenney, who runs the account, was left by his Dad at the age of 12, which serves as the inspiration for starting the account.

So far, ‘Dad, How Do I?’ has posted just 13 videos, but has managed to amass well over 1.2 million views since posting the first earlier in April 2020.

At the time of writing, Kenney’s latest video – simply saying thank you to the many thousands who have shared their admiration or gratitude for his content – is #7 on YouTube’s Trending page, with his name alongside the likes of KSI and Harry Styles.

In the video, he explains that many of the things he teaches on his YouTube channel are simply things he had to figure out growing up, acknowledging that others are in similar positions and might appreciate the help that he wasn’t able to get. Clearly, he’s right.

Thus far, the channel’s most-viewed video (not including the currently Trending one) is his second most recent one: “How to fix most running toilets.”

As with all his videos, this one does exactly what it says on the tin, and clearly has resonated with thousands of people across the globe, not just as an educational product but for what the channel itself represents.

Kenneys heartwarming content has clearly touched the hearts of many.

Since his first upload on April 2, Kenney has amassed almost 900,000 subscribers at the time of writing, quickly closing in on the incredible 1 million milestone. He has been making local news in Chicago and his story is spreading like wildfire and, in truth, you can’t say he doesn’t deserve all the love and respect he’s earned off the back of his efforts.

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
