Subscriber *clap* review *clap*

Felix Kjellberg, more commonly known as PewDiePie has been the most subscribed YouTube channel since 2013. He is a Swedish YouTuber and individually creates, edits, and publishes all of his content.  However, T-Series, an Indian music and film company gave Kjellberg a run for his money in December when both channels had 73 million subscribers.

You may be wondering, “Why should I subscribe to PewDiePie?” The answer is simple: he has good content. From meme reviews to video commentary, he has been uploading videos since 2011. There has been some controversy around PewDiePie because he has more than once given shout outs to channels that include anti-Semitic contentKjellberg has defended himself. 

People will have to make the decision on who they want to give their sub to. We’ve already decided, and we support YouTube king himself, PewDiePie.

Over the years, Felix Kjellberg has gained a massive following. Some of his fans are willing to go to extreme measures to help PewDiePie stay #1.

One of Kjellberg’s fans is a well known YouTuber, Jimmy Donaldson, or Mr.Beast. He has uploaded videos about PewDiePie, and asks everyone to subscribe to him. One of Donaldson’s videos was buying every advertisement in his hometown and changing them to say, “Subscribe to PewDiePie.”

Another video Donaldson posted was, “Saying PewDiePie 100,000 times,” which is a little less than 12 hours. We watched through until two hundred and skipped through the rest of the video where Donaldson is continually saying “PewDiePie.”

Mark Fischbach, or Markiplier is another well known YouTuber who supports PewDiePie. In December he posted a live stream called, “I Literally Won’t Shut Up Until You Subscribe to PewDiePie” which is 48 minutes of him talking about PewDiePie and how people need to subscribe in order for PewDiePie to stay in the top.

An anonymous Twitter account, HackerGiraffe, hacked over 50,000 printers worldwide. The papers printed that told people to subscribe to PewDiePie. The hacker didn’t get into any serious trouble, but had their Twitter account taken down. But, to stop this from happening again, change your printer settings to avoid exposure to open internet.

PewDiePie even got in on the action himself. He published a diss track against T-Series called, “B**** Lasagna.” The song basically is about PewDiePie saying that T-series has nothing on him and that T-series should just give up on trying to be number one.

All in all you can see some people are willing to go to extreme lengths in order for PewDiePie to stay the number one channel. So do your part and…subscribe to PewDiePie.
