Spend $1 Billion Dollars In 24 Hours or LOSE IT ALL – CHALLENGE #2

Spend $1 Billion Dollars In 24 Hours or LOSE IT ALL – CHALLENGE #2


Hello Infographics fans, we’re back again
with another 1 billion dollar challenge. In case you don’t remember from our last video,
the premise is simple: you’ve just been awarded 1 billion dollars in the super-stupendous-mega
jackpot, but there’s just one catch- you have to spend every dollar in 24 hours or else
you have to give back all the money. This time though if you fail instead of giving
the money to an organization dedicated to kicking kittens, all the money instead will
be donated to an organization dedicated to blasting baby seals into space… where they’ll
drift… all alone… for eternity. With no one to dry their tiny little baby
seal tears of loneliness. So you better not fail! Think you can outspend us? Stay tuned and let us know your list in the
comments! 1. Sweet Digs As always real estate is going to be your
best investment, plus you have to spend 1 billion dollars in 24 hours and if you saw
our last video you’re probably starting to get the idea that blowing all that dough isn’t
as easy as it sounds. Luckily we’ve got our eyes set on some of
the swankiest digs in the whole world- Mukesh Ambani’s Antilia located in Mumbai. As a 27 story skyscraper that’s been built
to withstand magnitude 8 earthquakes, Antila is one of the safest, and most luxurious homes
money can buy. And at a cost of 1 billion dollars, that takes
care of our entire budget all in one go! So that’s it for this episode of The Infographics
Show, we hope you enjoyed our list and if you think you can do better, let us know in
the comments. As always don’t forget to Like, Share, and

great vids! (Animators include a real end scene like the
type we put at end of all our videos) …ok fine, Antila may be cheating a bit,
though we can’t help but wonder who really needs a billion dollar home anyways? Plus, we’re afraid of heights, so we’re going
to pass on Antila and instead set our eyes on something a bit more sea level’ish and
with a great deal more heritage. Built in 1929 and designed by an American
architect, Villa Leopolda located on the French Riviera has an estimated value of a whopping
506 million dollars. But for all that cash you’re getting quite
a bit of history, as the famous estate was once owned by King Leopold II of Belgium-
presumably where he would go to relax after mutilating and torturing thousands of Africans
in his colonies. During World War I it was also used as a military
hospital, and if you’ve gotta get checked in to a hospital anywhere, Villa Leopolda
is definitely the place to be. With a giant swimming pool, 11 bedrooms, 14
bathrooms, an extensive garden, a private beach front, sport courts and a bowling alley,
Villa Leopolda is one sweet place to get laid up with a gunshot wound or two. The luxurious home would go on to be bought
by a Russian billionaire who bid $750 million dollars on the property, though current estimates
place its real value at its current 506 million. That’s 506 million down, 494 million to go! 2. Art is the essence of life. The most beautiful home in the world can feel
a pretty soulless place without art to liven it up- after all, what is life without art? Everything you do and enjoy nowadays is art,
from the tv shows and movies you watch, to the video games you play, and the comic books
you read- art is all around us. But we’re not going to fill our luxurious
digs on the French Riviera with art for ‘normals’, let the peasants enjoy their superhero movies
and comic books- we have 1 billion dollars, we have class now, we have… a painting of
a boy holding a pipe. At 104 million dollars, Picasso’s Boy With
A Pipe shattered records for an auctioned painting. Described as “the finest work in public
hands that was for sale”, we have to agree, I mean just take one look at it (use photo:https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/9/9c/Garçon_à_la_pipe.jpg/300px-Garçon_à_la_pipe.jpg) It’s a boy! And he’s holding a pipe! 106 million is far too little we say, an absolute
insult to art as a whole. A billion wouldn’t have been enough- did we
mention that he’s holding a pipe?! With our upper crust status firmly secured,
we’ve also knocked out another 106 million for a total expenditure of 612 million dollars. That leaves us with 388 million left to go,
and we have a pretty good idea for how to spend that money… 3. Meesa Not In This Movie Anymore Upon its release in 1977, Star Wars became
an immediate cultural icon, and one of the greatest film franchises in the world- and
then in 1999 we got the eagerly anticipated prequels and the first new star wars films
in decades. As fans packed into theaters around the nation
ticket sales records were set and broken over the course of a single weekend. And then we all got to meet Jar-Jar Binks,
the single worst character in all cinema past, present and future. Unfortunately we can’t send a Terminator back
in time to kill George Lucas before he wrote Jar-Jar into the scripts for all three prequels-
we know, we checked, remember we have a billion dollars at our disposal. We can however pay to completely reshoot the
entirety of the Phantom Menace and terminate Jar-Jar Binks from ever being a part of the
prequels. With a production cost of 115 million dollars,
undoing this horrible mistake is well within our budget- and though in our last episode
we said you couldn’t give the money to charity, this piece of charitable contribution to cinema
is completely acceptable. Eliminating Jar-Jar Binks from the Phantom
Menace will knock out another 115 million dollars from our budget, bringing our total
expenditures to 727 million and leaving us with 273 million to go! 4. Dead Fish As we’ve mentioned, art is important, and
it’s a great way to throw away a ton of money that could be used, we don’t know, for things
like helping people? But while most art does in fact help people
by giving them shows to watch or books to read that gives them a break from their daily
lives, art that costs millions or tens of millions of dollars… umm really helps people
get a break? Well, we’re going to invest once more in art,
and we have our eyes set on the world famous art piece, ‘Dead Shark’. At 12 million dollars, Dead Shark is a…
well, it’s a dead tiger shark in a tank full of formaldehyde. We know what you’re thinking- you’re spending
millions for a dead fish, what’s the point- but like, you just don’t get it man. But you know what, we’re going to help you
get it because we aren’t content with a dead shark a few feet long, we’re going to put
our prodigious wealth to use to make something far, far greater. The average tiger shark weighs 1100 pounds
(499 kg), so that means our 12 million dollar Dead Shark art piece has an approximate cost
of $10,909 per pound. The elephant, largest land mammal in the world,
can weigh up to 8,800 pounds (4,000 kg)- we think you see where we’re going with this. With a cost to create a new art piece at $10,909
per pound of animal stuffed into a glass case and filled with formaldehyde, we’re going
to commission a brand new art piece that we’ll cleverly call ‘Dead Elephant’, for a price
tag of $95,999,200- plus of course a 10% commission to the artist for a total of $106 million
dollars. Some anonymous bidder may have a full-sized
tiger shark in their home right now, but we’ve got a full grown African bull elephant, perfectly
preserved in formaldehyde for visitors to gawk at for years to come. Now that’s money well spent. That brings our total expenses to $833 million,
with $167 million left to go. 5. In space no one can hear you harass Harvey Weinstein had a really bad year in
2018 as he faced several court appearances over the plethora of sexual assault and sexual
harassment allegations against him. Sadly, Weinstein’s behavior is not only habitual,
but endemic to the entertainment industry, with most women both in front or behind the
camera having experienced sexual harassment or outright assault- having one of the highest
rates of any industry. We can’t do much about the behavior of all
the other predators in Hollywood, but we can use the rest of the money we have left to
make sure Weinstein never asks another young intern to watch him shower naked again. Currently NASA spends about $10,000 a pound
to get cargo to the international space station. With Harvey Weinstein’s approximate weight
being 300 pounds (136 kg), that means that we can use the rest of our 167 million dollars
to put Harvey Weinstein at a medium orbit around the earth of about 14,139 miles. That’ll be far enough away from earth that
he’ll be well within the bounds of any restraining order against him, and will ensure that the
Weino never bad-touches ever again. Once more, charity is technically against
the rules, but this is another public service we’re gonna get behind all the way. Got a better list? You don’t. Watch our Spend $1 billion dollars part 1
