It’s not a secret Jeff Bezos is worth a lot. Like, a lot, a lot.
But it can be kind of tricky to wrap your head around just how much he’s worth.
So one guy came up with a genius way to show how much the Amazon CEO is worth compared to your average millionaire. Have a look:
Humphrey Yang makes all kinds of videos on personal finance, from money hacks and tips for spotting pyramid schemes to explainers and summaries.
In his Bezos video, he made one grain of rice be worth $100,000, making 10 grains of rice value at $1 million... obviously.
Yang then spent absolute hours counting out grains of rice to show us a visual of how much the mega $1 billion is.
And I really mean hours – the timer beside him ticks and ticks to well over 12 hours.
He then shows a big pile of rice that equals the mega amount, before showing three grains to say: “I just bought you like a Lamborghini right here, and I didn’t even notice it was gone.”
But this is all only a fraction of Bezos’ net worth – at the time of filming anyway, because there’s no doubt it’ll have gone up again.
Yang headed to Costco and bought a massive bag of rice before emptying the mountain onto the ground.
And the $122 billion that the business mogul is worth came in at a whopping 58 lbs of rice.
In the video, Yang takes out the amounts Bezos would have spent on his house – unsurprisingly, it barely makes a dent in the pile.
So while one millionaire is worth 10 grains of rice, Mr Amazon is worth over 26kg of rice – that’s countless grains.
Shared to Instagram by UNILAD, users were in shock at his crazy-high wealth, writing in the comments: “No one should be this rich, it's unnecessary.”
And Yang even wrote: “It’s gotten a bit worth since then,” as it’s reported Bezo’s net worth now sits at a mega $160 billion. The rice just keeps on piling.
One user also joked in the comments: “I’d be happy with half a grain.”
