Need money fast? As it turns out, your best bet might be randomly DMing Jeff Bezos and just asking for it.

MrBeast has been keeping his followers updated after randomly asking for cash from one of the world’s richest men.

On July 1, the YouTuber wrote a tweet saying that it “feels like a great day for Jeff Bezos to give me a billion dollars for fun”.

In all fairness, Bezos probably has it spare. The Amazon founder’s net worth is estimated at around $150bn, despite the fact he was recently overtaken by the likes of Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault according to Forbes.
