What very likely put the Greenville resident over the top was his newest video he launched on Saturday, “$1 Vs $100,000,000 House!” It had 63 million views in 24 hours. That mark is unofficial but would top his own record for the most-viewed non-music video in 24 hours with the video “$1 vs $250,000 Vacation!” gaining 52 million views.
