MrBeast and Sidemen to Collab in 2022 for Next Viral Project
After the massive and viral Squid Game YouTube project, it looks like MrBeast is looking to collab with the Sidemen for his next project.
MrBeast is one of the most-viewed and highest-paid YouTubers, thanks to his attention-grabbing stunts and costly videos.
From counting till 100,000, turning a backyard into a ball pit to buying everything in a store, he's done it all.
His ambitious challenges and money-giveaways have helped him grow his channel to over 85 million subscribers.
But one of his most challenging videos to date was the recreation of the South Korean Netflix series.
Like the series, MrBeast gathered 456 contestants who competed in challenges to earn money, and if they failed, they were terminated from the competition.

The sheer scale of the video raked in millions of views and smashed YouTube records left and right.
According to MrBeast's manager Reed, it was the fastest non-music video to reach 100 million views, and most subscribers gained in one day.
But MrBeast is not slowing down and is already thinking about his next project.
In an interview with fellow YouTuber Marques Brownlee, MrBeast revealed that his next project would be larger than Squid Game.
The duo did not reveal it, but MrBeast stated that the production could take over six months.

The creators hinted it would be an "instant viral hit" and "bigger than Squid Game."
Although it is unconfirmed, before this interview was released, MrBeast had reached out to the UK-based YouTube group, Sidemen, on Twitter, asking them if they were interested in a collab.
He tagged all the members in the tweet, including KSI, Miniminter, Zerkaa, TBJZL, Behzinga, Vikkstar123, and W2S, but only Vikkstar123 had a response.
He hinted they might collaborate at the start of 2022 and that it would be full of surprises.
Fans were excited at the thought of their collab and tweeted their replies, hoping it was true.
But nothing has been confirmed, and fans can only wait for the new year to see if the collab will happen.
