Popular YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson, known as MrBeast, celebrated his 26th birthday by launching a massive Tesla giveaway. He announced the contest on his social media platforms, including Instagram, where he posted a video featuring himself with 25 Tesla Model 3s and a Cybertruck, the grand prize.

The giveaway involves Donaldson selecting 26 winners to receive either a Tesla Model 3 or the Cybertruck. Entry into the contest is straightforward: participants must comment on the Instagram video, tagging two friends. This giveaway marks another of MrBeast’s extravagant promotions, recognized for their viral appeal and massive participation.

Eligibility and Requirements

Entrants must reside in one of the eligible countries, including the U.S., Australia, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, and the United Kingdom. They must be at least 18 years old or the legal age of majority in their country. Canadian and Mexican participants face an additional hurdle; they need to answer a skill-testing question to claim their prize. This requirement is part of the legal conditions attached to the giveaway in these countries.

The contest opened on May 7 and will close at 11:59 ET on May 10. MrBeast will announce the winners on May 14. Participants are required to follow MrBeast’s Instagram to facilitate communication should they win. Winners may also need to sign a release form, as the cars and cash prizes are part of a promotional content campaign.

Tesla is not sponsoring the giveaway. Winners have the option to choose between the vehicle and a cash prize—$39,000 for a Model 3 and $120,000 for the Cybertruck winner.

The Tesla giveaway not only celebrates the birthday of MrBeast in his signature lavish style but also underscores the impact of influencer marketing in modern promotional campaigns. The success of such giveaways demonstrates the significant pull of popular figures in the digital age, capable of eclipsing traditional sales benchmarks through social media reach and engagement.
