YouTube sensation Jimmy Donaldson, popularly known as MrBeast, has shattered the 24-hour view record for a non-music video with his gripping ‘7 Days Stranded at Sea’ vlog, garnering an astonishing 46 million views in just 23 hours.
What Happened: In 2021, MrBeast made headlines for breaking the record for the fastest non-music video to reach 100 million views, thanks to his Squid Game-themed video.
Now, after two years, the philanthropic content creator has set the internet ablaze with the news of yet another record-breaking milestone.

The YouTuber also took this opportunity to clap back at critics who accuse him of getting views solely because of the monetary giveaways.
When a user on Twitter, now rebranded as X, made a comment recalling a past thread about “MrBeast falling off,” Donaldson responded confidently, saying, “It’s funny because I’m just getting started. I have at least 1,000 more mega bangers I want to film.”
