Got out of a disaster and saved a hundred thousand dollar MrBeast shoot

In this project, he was supposed to help MrBeast for a shoot, where the latter wanted to try out the lightsaber for his next video. According to the video’s premise, MrBeast wanted 2 lightsabers just because he wanted to rip a hole in two vaults (or safes) which was a hurdle for one of the competitions. Indeed, that not only sounds cool, but it was also a sight to behold.

However, even before MrBeast could show up, there was an accident on the sets of the shoot. James and one of his teammates decided to race through the sets. They accidentally hit one of the vaults, resultantly damaging the prop even before the shoot could begin. But there was still time before his guests could arrive. That gave him the time to make amends for their actions.
