YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson, famously known as MrBeast, recently shared a video detailing a stunt that pushed him to tears and left him grappling with ‘mental agony’. What was this extreme challenge? He voluntarily buried himself ten feet underground for a seven-day endurance test. Throughout, his team closely monitored his condition via cameras installed inside the coffin. Sounds crazy, right?
“I spent 7 days buried alive,” reads the title of the video shared on YouTube by MrBeast. The video opens to show MrBeast inside a transparent coffin, stocked with essentials, being slowly lowered into the ground. As the video goes on, his team uses 20,000 pounds of dirt to effectively seal the YouTuber below the surface. Throughout the video, MrBeast experiences emotional breakdowns, candidly revealing details of his daily routine, including bathroom activities, and expresses a loss of desire to communicate. Towards the end of the video, he says, “It’s hard to describe what the sun looks like after not seeing it for seven days straight.”
