Tom Brady Breaking Records With Mr. Beast Video
Tom Brady is once again putting up amazing numbers. This time he is breaking records for YouTube views with Mr. Beast.
Two days ago, Mr. Beast (Jimmy Donaldson), a massive influencer and philanthropist, published a video entitled “$1 vs. $1,000,000,000 Yacht!”. During this, Mr. Beast and his crew tour an array of million-dollar yachts and even get pizza delivered via a helicopter. Then, they get joined by a few special guests. One of them is actor/comedian Pete Davidson.
GOAT on a Boat
At about eight minutes into this yacht tour video, Mr. Beast moves to a $300 million dollar yacht. It contains six floors and nine master bedrooms. This where the GOAT jumps onboard (with his water jug in hand, of course). Together they have a few laughs, looking at the barbershop on board. But the clip blowing up YouTube sees Brady saying, “If I hit the drone on the first try, maybe I should come out of retirement.”
Next, Mr. Beast challenges Mr. Brady to hit throw a football and hit his drone out of the sky. Barstool Sports reported that it was the second most viewed YouTube video of all time over 24 hours. They clarify that this record-breaking statistic is in the non-music video category. As of yesterday, the only non-music video to attract more views was the Will Smith / Chris Rock slap.
Another Slap Heard Around The World
At the 1o minute, 59 second mark, you hear a slap sound with Mr. Beast yelling, “first try.” Yes, you guessed it, Brady nailed the drone with a football pass on the first attempt. He’s rocking a white backwards cap, and his daughter throws her arms in the air like a touchdown celebration. This clip then went viral, with everyone from TMZ to the Today Show running the highlight.
As a side note worth mentioning, through his Beast Philanthropy initiative, Jimmy Donaldson and team have reportedly donated more than 5.5 million pounds of food, delivered more than 4.5 million meals, and fed approximately 300,000 people. In addition, $3 million was donated in aid for Ukrainian refugees in 2022.
