Yep, you read that right – Logan Paul isn’t the last YouTuber to have entered Japan’s ‘Suicide Forest’ in the hopes of filming a shocking vlog.

Indonesian YouTuber ‘Qorygore’ has received massive criticism after traveling to Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ in what appears to have been an explicit venture to discover the bodies of deceased persons – not unlike YouTuber Logan Paul, who faced similar backlash after filming a body for a vlog in early 2018.

In fact, Qorygore even admitted to taking inspiration from the massive YouTube star, calling himself “Logan 2.0,” upon finding a decaying corpse amongst the foliage.

“No dead bodies, no fun,” Qorygore stated of his venture, going on to joke about the body he and his friends had discovered near the end of the vlog.

While the video garnered a reported 575,000 views before ultimately being deleted, several duplicates have since sprung up across the platform. However, Indonesian citizens are taking issue with Qory’s vlog, with some calling his publicity stunt “sick” and “fucked.”

“I think the video is wrong because Qorygore is clearly trying to gain views from this video — and it is a sponsored video,” one Indonesian Twitter user wrote of the debacle. “He deliberately went looking for views at a place where finding people committing or have committed suicide is common. HOW SICK IS THAT?”

As of December 5, no known legal punishment toward the YouTuber has been doled out.

Despite Logan Paul’s similar scandal in the beginning of 2018, he has since managed to find massive success on the platform, earning a reported $14.5 million and even fighting in a massive pay-per-view YouTube boxing match.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
