For the kết thúc of the year 20đôi mươi, MrBeast, YouTuber with 50 million subscribers, has put online a Clip that is symptomatic of the evils of our society. This đoạn Clip was truly disgusting to me because, in addition lớn being useless, it promotes the values that destroy our living together.Bạn sẽ xem: Mr beast là ai And yet it has already garnered 30 million views.

MrBeast offers us the distressing spectacle of our addictions & the values that motivate us.
Who is MrBeast?
First of all, a little reminder for those who don’t know who MrBeats is.
Jimmy Donaldson of his real name is a YouTuber star in the United States whose first video went viral and would make even the most hardcore “performance art” fans jealous. In this đoạn phim, which has accumulated more than đôi mươi million views, MrBeast is filming himself as he counts up to lớn trăng tròn,000,000 views in the … 100000. It’s fascinating & lasts 24 hours.
Since then, as this portrait published by Bloomberg reminds us, each of his videos has exceeded đôi mươi million views and 34 million hours of viewing have been spent each month on his YouTube channel. You are not mistaken. Every month, 34 million hours are spent watching his videos. That’s 50 whole human lives a month watching his videos. That is huge.
We also learn that the average cost of making his videos is $300,000 và that he employs 50 people for production và logistics.
All these impressive figures would make you dream if the videos themselves were up khổng lồ the task. But the least we can say is that the message they convey is catastrophic.
The average cost of making his YouTube videos is $300,000, and MrBeats employs 50 people for production and logistics.
Why MrBeast videos are decadent and unbearable
I have lớn admit that I didn’t know MrBeats before I read the Bloomberg article. His success is unbelievable, & I am delighted for hyên. But it comes at a price: the degradation of those who watch his videos.
If his first video could still make people smile (nearly 120k comments and 1m of “xanh thumbs” anyway), what about the following ones? Here are a few titles chosen at random:I Put 1,000,000 Christmas Lights On A House (World Record)I Opened A Restaurant That Pays You To Eat At ItI Gave People $1,000,000 But ONLY 1 Minute To Spend It!Steal This $100,000 Diamond, You Keep ItPress This Button To Win $100,000!I Survived 24 Hours Straight In IceI Uber’d People And Let Them Keep The CarI Filled My Brother’s House With Slime & Bought Him A New OneI Gave My 40,000,000th Subscriber 40 CarsGet This Random Person 1,000,000 Subscribers
Lots of numbers, lots of zeros, và one thing in common: the promotion of gain, materialistic values, và competition. His Christmas video (“I put 1,000,000 Christmas lights on a house”) in particular is a masterpiece of its kind.
In 15 minutes, a day, you can learn a foreign language. And in 15 minutes spent on YouTube?
MrBeast and his million Christmas lights
As you can see, MrBeast likes lớn go over the top. In this sense, he has well understood the human nature that the dose of dopamine will only come with ever more insane objectives khổng lồ reach. This race khổng lồ excess is made by playing on the lowest instincts of the human being. His Christmas đoạn phim gives us a luminous demonstration of this.

The countless Christmas lights are collected between the houses. Each team has a mix amount of time lớn decorate “their” trang chính, which results in a few fights on the heap of garlands. Life is a struggle, even when making “his” house more beautiful than his neighbours.
The results are up to lớn the challenge. The lighting in each trang chủ must consume the equivalent of the daily output of a nuclear power plant. At a time of global warming, you will appreciate the message conveyed.
In this energy orgy, don’t forget to lớn remember lớn subscribe (see above, top right corner). A team has therefore decided lớn make its decoration on the theme … videos of MrBeast. Despite this fairy tale, I tell you right away, (Spoil!), they won’t win.
Finally comes the moment that everyone has been waiting for: the verdict. The jury members are not just anyone, since they are two Youtubers with millions of subscribers. If you don’t recognise them, they are the 2 boys on the picture’s right: MatPat (13,6m subscribers, an expert in Clip games), Quackity (3,7m subscribers, an expert in Minecraft). There is also a girl (Damaris) a “random subscriber” and of course MrBeast himself (on the left of the picture).
You will note the irony. These 4 YouTube products will therefore decide the outcome of a “contest” posted itself on YouTube. I’ll save you a few minutes of useless viewing by revealing the names of the winners … it’s the 2 kids in the picture. The one on the right is 18 years old.
MrBeast also has an eye for the losers, offering them a beautiful sports car worth $30,000. Despite Mr Beast’s efforts, the losers can’t hide their disappointment. At least when someone won a oto in the Price is Right 10 years ago, he was happy. But in 2021 young people have sầu become very ungrateful.
Where am I going with all this? MrBeast offers us the distressing spectacle of our addictions & the values that motivate us.
Addiction first of all lớn the biggest, strongest, most expensive sầu, most beautiful and so on. Today it takes a ton of superlatives lớn get “views” and “likes”. Without this debauchery, it is impossible to capture the Internet user’s attention who, like the heroin addict, needs an ever-increasing dose of emotion on YouTube.
Doing something sensational and exaggerated is the only reason for MrBeast và other YouTubers in the “entertainment” business khổng lồ exist. On the one hand, they exploit the flaws of human beings & their thirst for dopamine. On the other hand, they also influence the YouTube algorithm‘s deficiencies, which is calibrated to lớn maximise the hours spent on the platsize & the addictive nội dung.
