  • David Dobrik executed one of his biggest giveaways ever during the coronavirus lockdown in California.

  • At the start of his video, posted Friday, Dobrik announced that he'd partnered with the video game company EA to help people out during the crisis.

  • Dobrik, his assistants Natalie Mariduena and Taylor Hudson, and his friend Jason Nash loaded up a van with game consoles and iPads, spraying them with disinfectant before handing them to people on the street while wearing gloves and masks.

  • Then they attached about $500 in cash to numerous Frisbees and tossed them to more passersby who were told to look under the toy for a surprise.

  • Dobrik and his crew then visited homes of people who had reached out to him with a T-shirt cannon and numerous David Dobrik-branded shirts.

  • "For every piece of merch we're giving out, there's a check for $10,000," Dobrik said in the video while panning the camera across at least 21 T-shirts.

  • After filming the reactions of people receiving their checks, Dobrik handed even more people the keys to a new Toyota using the end of a broom handle.

  • "I want to hug you. I can't hug you?" an emotional fan was filmed saying at the end of the video. "Not now, but I'll come by another time and we'll hug it out," Dobrik promised.
