What can MrBeast NOT do?
The popular YouTuber has proven that he can do a lot, and now he can add “teach a class at Harvard University” to his growing list of accomplishments.
MrBeast Recently Taught A Business Class At Harvard University
Being one of the most popular YouTubers with 144 million subscribers has its privileges. MrBeast, 24, also has a thriving TikTok page with more than 80 million followers. And let’s not forget Instagram, where he has more than 25 million followers. He’s been making YouTube videos since he was 13-years-old, and briefly attended East Carolina University before leaving to create YouTube content full time.
While MrBeast, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, didn’t give much information about his exciting day as a professor at Harvard Business School, he did share two photos captioned, “I taught a class at Harvard which is pretty funny because I dropped out of college after only going to for two weeks haha.”
He also dropped into the comment section to add, “I also didn’t purposefully dress like Steve Jobs, this was my only pair of jeans and it was cold so I wore a crew neck. 😂” (Referencing that Jobs, co-founder of Apple, used to wear a black turtleneck and jeans for any of his presentations.)
While it’s unclear as to what class he taught, based on his second photo in the carousel of photos shared, the chalkboard behind him in the photo points to how to build a successful brand, something Donaldson knows VERY well.
The Instagram post of MrBeast’s day at Harvard University received more than 4.5 million likes and nearly 16,000 comments. Even MrBeast himself couldn’t believe how much attention this social media post received. He took to an Instagram Story to share that he almost didn’t even share the news of his Harvard teaching day.
Many of the YouTuber’s followers left their thoughts in the comment section of the Instagram post.
“POV: You miss school one day,” one person hilariously wrote. Another added, “When you skip one day of school: ‘MrBeast gave us a business class.'”
YouTube wanted to get in on the commenting action and wrote, “Can you send me your notes for the homework? 👀”
Facebook also left a comment, “That’s legendary.”
And of course, there were jokes. “That is hilarious, now go give the janitor that’s been solving the math equations on the board 100k,” one person wrote. Another wrote, “Lol I thought u just bought Harvard. 😆”
MrBeast Knows Firsthand About Creating Successful Brands
MrBeast found the magic formula for success in the brands he’s created.
Feastables can now be found exclusively at Walmart, and just last year, Donaldson opened his first MrBeast Burger restaurant in American Dream in New Jersey.
Knowing that collaborating with the right people can bring more attention to his brand, MrBeast has done a few social media collaborations surrounding his brands.
Popular TikTok food critic Keith Lee recently rated MrBeast’s Feastables chocolates after the two creators joined forces to run a contest to help small, struggling food establishments in Las Vegas get the attention they deserved.
MrBeast also collaborated with TikTok famous Corn Kid when he opened his restaurant last year.
The video received nearly 103 million views. TikTok commented on the video, “TikTok of the year.”
