MrBeast planning another Squid Game Video

The South Korean survival drama series, Squid Game, became a colossal hit globally. The 24-years-old American YouTuber took notice of the Netflix show’s popularity soon. Shortly, he came up with a Squid Game-themed video.

MrBeast replicated the games from the South Korean show. But the YouTuber’s version wasn’t life-threatening as in the show. However, the game was thrilling to play and awarded a huge prize pool to the winner.

Donalson invited 456 participants to the show, and the winner took home $456,000. It wasn’t only a great deal for the winner, but also for MrBeast. This Squid Game video became a colossal hit on Donaldson’s main channel. He gained over 258 million views on it, which massively contributed to his 16.03 billion channel views.
