You won’t believe if we say this guy literally quit school to become a YouTube personality. After he dropped out of school, he launched a YouTube channel. Felix Kjellberg started his YouTube page «PewDiePie» on April 29, 2010 with a Minecraft playback video showing a zombie that had appeared in a Minecraft. After a few months of this video, he started downloading playthroughs of “Call Of Duty: Black Ops”, “Amnesia: The Dark Descent” and “Dead Space 2”. During the early days, PewDiePie was known for playing horror and action video games.

It was in 2011 that his fandom grew. In October 2011, he created a unique theme blog «Fuck Yeah PewDiePie» for fans of his videos. In eight months, its YouTube channel has released more than 1,4000 videos. These videos included readings of about 40 games and 40 custom Amnesia stories that were sent by its fans. Felix can be crowned «social media giant». We only talked about his YouTube channel; apart from YouTube too, he is the king! It has over 7 million likes on Facebook, 8 million followers on Twitter and another 10 million on Instagram, and we’re still counting!

The characters in his videos are very funny. Watching his videos, you can notice that our attention would be diverted from the comments and reactions he gives when playing video games. For this reason, his videos fall under the “Let’s Play” set, a series of screenshot videos, documenting part of the video game. This usually includes the player’s comment.

Let’s check the chart of its subscribers. Trust us, it will amuse you. After creating its account in 2010, its channel had about 60,000 subscribers in December 2011. When he gained 700,000 subscribers, he was invited to speak at the Nonick Conference in 2012. The same year in July, he had 1 million subscribers, it took him only two more months to reach 2 million. No wonder, in October 2012, OpenSlate ranked the «PewDiePie» channel as the number one channel on YouTube.

Talking about its earnings, with these many subscribers, also came commercial success! According to the Swedish newspaper «Expresen», this guy earned $7.4 million in 2014 and was named one of the most influential people on the Internet in 2015. Given the size of its subscribers and the number of videos created by «Let’s Play», to be 2,300 specific videos were created by it, it is really worth it.

Kjellberg’s popularity brought him as a guest star in the episodes of «South Park». On December 3, 2014, an episode of the animated program «South Park» entitled «#REHASH» was aired. It presented the original images of PewDiePie. This is not the end. Kjellberg also published his book in December 2015. The book “This Book Loves You” is a collection of satires with inspiring quotes. Don’t be yourself, be a pizza, everyone loves pizza” is something only Felix would quote. This book was ranked first in the list of New York Adult bestsellers.

Apart from all this, he is also well known for his social services. In February 2012, he entered the King of the web contest, a social media contest. This contest awards prizes in cash or merchandise to its winners. Since he received more than a million votes, he was crowned «King of Gaming on the Web». After receiving a cash prize, he donated the entire amount to the World Wildlife Foundation.

Since then, he has frequently contributed to charity. He then donated over $34,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital from the funds he received to be a YouTube partner. He even encouraged his fans to participate in charity. After winning more than 10 lakh followers for his channel, he released a video asking his followers to donate to the Charity: Water association. This association was created to provide drinking water to developing countries. Their initial goal was to raise $250,000, but the Bro army managed to raise a total of more than $400,000 at the end of the trip.

What makes PewDiePie so Special :

The first thing that makes it so special is that it is loved by all, regardless of age and gender. On the occasion of his book launch in Manhattan, fifteen hundred teenagers gathered to see him. According to //www.rollingstone.com/, a 21-year-old girl said she arrived from New York early in the morning around 4 a.m. after driving 33 hours from Texas.

It’s actually nothing; she also mentions an elderly woman standing next to her, who with her niece flew in from Peru. Check in! The distance between Peru and Manhattan is almost 5,554 km. Now it’s time to meet a 16-year-old fan, Shane. Shane Flanagan took a bus from New Jersey the day before and camped in front of a parasol. And this has its advantages; it was the first on the line! We told you, PewDiePie is loved around the world.

Another interesting factor is his videos. In his videos, he laughs, yells, swears and blunders like he’s hanging out with his best friend. And then he talked to the props that appear in the game as if it were a living object. You want an example? The first character he created was a golden statue on a shelf and he called it «Stephano», which had a French ascension. It was introduced into an Amnesia story called «Abduction». Over time, this object became less fearless. The fun part is where; Stephano would advise PewDiePie whenever he’s scared or distracted. However, after the counselling session, PewDiePie would immediately place Stephano on the nearest shelf and ask him to be quiet. The player did not achieve 4.1 billion views in 2014 for nothing!

And then his answer when asked about his $7.4 earnings is exactly why he’s succeeding. Sitting in front of a computer, playing games and shouting all day is not an easy task. Although it sounds easy, it’s not real. In his video “Lets Talk About Money”, he says, “People…thought it was unfair. They thought I was sitting on my ass all day and I was just screaming on the screen here – which is true – but there’s so much more.” Here he spoke directly to the camera, he didn’t look defensive and he wasn’t shouting either. He looked sincere and pleasant. He also added: If you think someone is funnier. Go refresh their video and watch it again and again and again. Because that’s how we get paid.”

And then there is the famous “Bro Army”. For all those who wonder about Bro Army. Let us enlighten you; Bro Army is the name of the PewDiePie fan base. Felix likes to call his fans «Bros». As Bro Army is all about PewDiePie, his fans consider him the leader of this band. People in this army are usually engaged in brofisting, as PewDiePie would give brofist to fans at the end of his videos. Unlike other YouTube personalities, he not only plays games, he interacts with his audience. Bro fist!

 

Beyond the fame

Despite the fame, Felix is also a controversial player. He had to deal with the rage of other players unhappy with its content. He even had to disable some YouTube comments on his channel due to negativity and spam issues.

The news that spread like wildfire was about the suspension of the PewDiePie Twitter account. On August 30, 2016, PewDiePie did not check on Twitter because it found the notification very annoying. The same day, he retweeted a tweet from the satirical news website, “Sky News”, which jokingly suggested that he was not verified because he had links to the terrorist group ISIS. He then tweeted jokingly that he and his YouTube colleague “Jackseptic Eye” had not been checked on Twitter because of their links to ISIS. The next day, his Twitter account was temporarily suspended. Although at that time he lost 8 million followers, they are all back now and the account is active, but the blue tick is still missing.

 

behind the curtain :

Felix Kjellberg was born on 24 October 1989. Originally from Gothenburg, he was born to Ulf Christian Kjellberg and Lotta Kristine Johanna and grew up with his sister Fanny.

During his school life, Felix was interested in the arts and drew characters from popular video games such as Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog. His love for video games started at a small age, he used to superimpose his classes to play video games. After graduating from Goteborgs Hogre Samskola, he studied industrial economics and technology management at Chalmers University Of Technology. That’s when he left school to become a YouTube star.

His parents were not very happy with that decision, so they refused to provide him with any kind of funding. He then started working at a hot dog stand to finance his videos. It is said that his real channel name was “Pwedie” but unfortunately he forgot the password and so started “PewDiePie”.

Felix then made the headlines to go out with Marzia Bisognin, who is also vlogger, she vlogue on culinary fashion and travel. They have been dating since 2011. They now live together and sometimes even together. Rumors about their breakup have started to make headlines lately, on which she posted a photo of the duo, clearing the air.
