    Summary: The internet challenged Mr. Beast to plant 20 million trees. That is a really hard thing to do. So we banded together all our YouTube friends and started #teamtrees. Basically we partnered with Arbor Day and got them to agree that for every $1 we raise, they would plant 1 tree.

                Jo Mark, I love your videos! You are doing a amazing educational and entertaining job!!!! But please, try to NOT over-simplify... The O2 comes from the water the tree "drinks" and not from the CO2.. Greetings from Norway!:)

                  You can tell this is a collaboration of so many different types of creators by the difference ins styles and special effects throughout the video. It’s not all Mark Rober’s style. That effect with the dollar bill is someone more focused on entertainment and less on education than Mark.
