The king of YouTube and the king of film scoring have teamed up for an epic new project.
We are, of course, talking about MrBeast and Hans Zimmer.
The 24-year-old vlogger – real name Jimmy Donaldson – took to Twitter late last night (24 December) to reveal that he'd managed to land the iconic composer to put together a soundtrack for his latest video.
MrBeast has earned a whopping 123 million subscribers thanks to his expensive stunts – let's not forget the fact that he's donated millions of dollars to help make the world a better place.
As for Zimmer, his impact on the world of cinema cannot be understated.
Whether it be Interstellar, Inception, Man of Steel or The Dark Knight trilogy, his thunderous symphonies have ignited goosebumps in filmgoers year after year.
It's safe to say MrBeast's followers were excited about the collab, which was swiftly followed by the release of the actual video – and it's no ordinary vlog in itself.
Titled 'I Survived 50 Hours In Antarctica', the footage unsurprisingly shows MrBeast and his crew of pals taking on the coldest and most treacherous part of the world.
"After years of trying we finally did it," he wrote, referencing the fact that the group had been wanting to take on Antarctica for some time.
And they did so with style, spending more than two days and nights in the southernmost continent where they camped out in the snow, climbed mountains and built a big hole in the snow.
The feat was impressive enough on its own, but thanks to the specially made Hans Zimmer soundtrack, it was nothing short of epic – you could easily see this playing out on the big screen.
Plenty of people agree, with the video earning more than 17 million views in a matter of just hours.
Taking to the comments section, one person wrote: "One of the best videos you made!"
"That's crazy you now got Hans Zimmer to make music for your videos," said another, while a third added: "They actually got to collab with Hans Zimmer and go to Antarctica that's nuts!"
Fellow content creators shared their surprise at the unbelievable collaboration too, including KSI who joked: "Brother chill," alongside laughing face emojis.
Meanwhile, Grabster quipped: "Us peasants when making videos: 'Royalty free dramatic music.'
"Mr Beast: 'Yo Hans can you do a score for me real quick? Need it for a transition. Thanks!'"
Beyond the incredible score, fans were just impressed with the achievement, including the camera work that went into making the video and the fact that MrBeast managed to weave a sponsorship into the trek.
"Huge shout out to MrBeasts' camera men," wrote one. "They are really filming these guys through a f**king blizzard."
Another commented, "Jimmy is literally doing a sponsored fragment while climbing a mountain in Antartica. Best YouTuber on earth."
Yep, it's going to be hard to top this one.
