Office star John Krasinski launches YouTube channel focused on good news

Actor and director John Krasinski has launched his own YouTube channel dedicated to good news.

He asked his followers on Twitter to give him some good news during isolation. He wrote: "Alright everybody, how about #SomeGoodNews !  

"Send me the stories that have made you feel good this week or the things that just made you smile!"

With the responses he got he created a 15 minute video and uploaded it to YouTube. So far the 'A Quiet Place' director has accumulated seven million views.

The highlight of the video for many fans was when Krasinski interviewed his The Office US co-star Steve Carell to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the show.

Krasinski tweeted a few hours after uploading, writing: "Wow!! Totally blown away by the response to #SGN! Thank you thank you... But hey, you guys did this!!  

"So you keep sending me #SomeGoodNews and making me smile... and I'll keep trying to return the favor! Pass it on!"
