Has anyone ever tipped a car?
The YouTuber then gives her the keys to a black Toyota Corolla that is parked outside, which surprises her.
The logo for his chocolate company, Feastables, is all over the car. While the logo for the vlogger’s YouTube channel is on the hood.
Mr. Beast’s chocolate bar is also in the car, sitting in the cupholder.
I was literally late to work today because the Uber was slow,
Amy tells the YouTuber in the clip.
I’m in such shock right now. I don’t even know how to drive.

Bro MrBeast, ain’t nobody driving no Feastable car,
one viewer comments.
Another person jokes:
‘Aw thanks’… straight to the paint shop.
While a third says:
Bro gave someone a car that markets and advertises his bars and made a video out of it.
First order of business… remove the wrap,
comments another viewer.
But some people are going to the comments to praise MrBeast for being “selfless.”
One person says:
All that matter is she likes it. She got it for free and honestly, that’s kind of a cool story to tell despite the logos.
The selflessness is REAL,
Thank you for doing this for so many.
