Remembrance Day: MrBeast's 11/11 Phenomenon

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, World War I came to an end after four brutal years of fighting. Now, Canada observes two minutes of silence on Remembrance Day for the brave people who gave their lives in service of a better Canada.

Something happened at the same time with YouTuber Jimmy "MrBeast" Donaldson, who is known for his expensive stunts. In a tweet, Donaldson shares his spectacular coincidence: reaching 111,111,111 subscribers at exactly 11:11 on November 11th.

The YouTuber is soon to overtake PewDiePie, becoming the most subscribed-to individual on the platform.
