YouTuber MrBeast Spends 50 Hours Buried Alive In Coffin

A YouTuber has buried himself in a coffin underground for 50 hours - for some reason. Watch here:

MrBeast - real name Jimmy Donaldson - spent more than two days in a box underground for the entertainment of his 57.2 million YouTube subscribers.

In the 12-minute video extracted from his 50 hours underground, MrBeast talks viewers through his peeing process (empty bottles), and confesses he's been holding in his poop while in the coffin.

With more than 30 hours left, he cried a predictable lament: "I wanna move around, but I can't."

He couldn't because he knew the deal was that if he got out early, his mates got to taser him. In the balls.

A day in, and the side effects of lying in a box underground started to take their toll.

He said: "My back hurts, I'm starting to feel claustrophobic, I'm bored out of my mind, I smell pretty bad."

After an hour of digging, his pals dug a hole down to his coffin to send an important message. A message on a piece of paper that simply read: "Penis."

Clearly this - and the fear of taking a taser to the nuts - was enough to spur him on, as he made it past the 50-hour mark. In fact, it was a bit longer than that by the time they got him out.

Upon his release, the 22-year-old felt a touch emotional, which seems a little overdramatic. But hey, who are we to judge? And by 'we', I mean people who haven't been buried underground for 50 hours.

One bloke who definitely would have cried after that experience is Dr Timothy Clark Smith, who had a window fitted in his coffin because he was so afraid of being buried alive. It also had a bell he could ring in case he miraculously woke up somehow.

The grave is still at Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven, Vermont, and has become a bit of a tourist attraction, with people visiting the site to try and peer down the window to catch a glimpse of the late doctor.

According to vermonter.com, the unusual burial vault actually has two rooms and Dr Smith is buried down there alongside his wife.

The vault has stairs which lead to the two rooms within, one of which contains the shaft for the viewing window.

Local legend also claims that a hammer and chisel were placed near Dr Smith's remains should he find himself awake and in need of a quick exit.

But anyone hoping to visit to try and see the doctor inside his grave will be left disappointed, as the site also explains that due to 'condensation and plant growth inside the shaft' you can no longer see anything inside.

A grave oversight from the doc really.
