Jimmy Donaldson, the YouTuber known as MrBeast, is used to evaluating the value of different products in his videos. Now, he’s putting another comparison to the test: X vs. YouTube.


Donaldson uploaded his first video directly to X on Monday, a reupload of his YouTube video “$1 vs $100,000,000 Car!” which he initially posted in September. The YouTube upload of this video has received over 211 million views.


“I’m curious how much ad revenue a video on X would make so I’m reuploading this to test it. Will share ad rev next week,” the creator said in an X post.


The video had over 52 million views on X as of Tuesday morning.
