If your kids are at a loss for activities to keep them entertained these holidays, here's an idea - record themselves counting to 100,000.

It took YouTuber 'MrBeast' 40 hours to undertake the task, which he says he only did because he "was bored". 

The video, which had to be sped up to a mere 24 hours long due to limits on his software, had over 6.5 million views on Sunday afternoon. 

"I can't believe I did this," MrBeast wrote in the caption of the video, which was posted on January 8. "I regret this." 

There are rumours that MrBeast misses out some numbers and repeats some others. Here at Newshub we chose not to watch the whole video its entirety, but if any readers want to take it upon themselves to try and find when it occurs, we would welcome the information.
