A TikToker Has Put Jeff Bezos’ Insane Wealth Into Perspective With A Shitload Of Rice

A TikTok video has gone viral for depicting exactly how stinking rich Jeff Bezos is, and it has blown my fucking mind.

We all know Jeff Bezos has too much money. $116 billion USD, to be precise.

In case you weren’t already aware, that is an unfathomable amount of wealth. Most of us can’t even comprehend *just* how rich Bezos actually is.

A 32-year-old e-commerce consultant named Humphrey Yang recently posted a video to his financial literacy TikTok account, in which he used rice to show what $100,000, $1 million and $1 billion actually looks like.

It’s truly fascinating stuff.

Most of us are on less than $100,000 per year, so it can be easy to just lump every rich guy into one category. Millionaire? Billionaire? Who cares, eat them all!

But this video is a truly eye-opening look at the insane wealth imbalance in the world.

After the success of the first video, Humphrey decided to specifically show how much money Bezos has. Spoiler alert: it is too much money.

One grain of rice is equal to $100,000. While most of us have a fraction of a single grain, Mr Bezos has enough to feed the whole damn country.

Jeff Bezos has 26kg of rice.

Let that sink in.


I have less than one grain of rice and this guy has 26kg.

Naturally, Twitter went wild over this video because we’re out here working our asses off for a measly half-grain of rice while Bezos could feed the whole damn village.

Even presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren got in on the action, using it to exemplify how much tax Bezos would be paying if she wins the 2020 election.

If this isn’t a sign that we need to eat the rich, I don’t know what is.
