Mr Beast reveals amount of time it takes to create his YouTube …

YouTube legend Mr. Beast, the creator with the most followers on the platform has gone above and beyond in his latest video to help cure 1000 people of blindness.

The 24-year-old, real name Jimmy Donaldson, begins his latest viral video (which was partially leaked back in October) by explaining that around 200 million people alive today have trouble with blindness. A surgeon then explains that half of all the blindness in the world can be stopped with just a simple 10-minute surgery.

The YouTuber adds: "If you're wondering how the surgery allows people to see again, it's because the lens in their eyes is so cloudy that they can't see through it.

"So the surgeon uses a tiny vacuum to suck up the clouded lens. And replace it with an artificial one. The surgery is that simple! They can see again."
