Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, also known by his online alias PewDiePie or simply Pewds, is a Swedish YouTube celebrity, gamer, comedian, and internet personality. From 2013 to 2019, he held the title of the most subscribed YouTuber on the platform. He is currently the second most subscribed YouTuber on the platform, behind T-Series, and the most subscribed individual content creator.

Opposite to Mark's style, Felix tries to make walkthroughs as funny as possible, usually messing with glitches and gameplay. He can be described as a professional gamer with the awareness of what makes a game good or bad. He has created several charity campaigns.

Early life

Felix was born in Gothenburg, Sweden. He graduated from Göteborgs Högre Samskola in 2008 and attended the Chalmers University of Technology to pursue a degree in Industrial Economics and Technology Management, but left in 2011 because he was bored. During his early schooling life, he was interested in art and has detailed that he would draw popular video game characters such as Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog, as well as play video games on his Super Nintendo Entertainment System. During high school, he would skip classes to play video games at an Internet café with friends.

Career

Felix joined YouTube on December 19, 2006. His earliest YouTube channel is Pewdie. In the beginning, he recorded gaming videos which usually revolved around Call of Duty on the channel. However, in 2010, he forgot the password but later remembered it in January 2012, at which point he deleted the original videos. Most content on the Pewdie channel consists of gaming, but there are vlogging videos as well. The first Fridays with PewDiePie videos were first uploaded on this channel. Ever since 2013, the Pewdie channel has been inactive.

Felix started as a Call of Duty and Minecraft YouTuber on his main PewDiePie channel in 2010 and 2011. Like many other Call of Duty YouTubers then, he played short clips of his best kills and added comedic edits while commentating the game. With an old YouTube friend, Baz, he also did Minecraft let's plays. Felix had already gained a few thousand subscribers before playing Amnesia, which skyrocketed his channel. He also has a friend who uploads short clips from his videos under the channel SkaterOfFabulous, which he mentioned in a "Fridays with PewDiePie" Q&A episode.

Felix started to gain media attention in 2012, as he uploaded videos of his dark humor and reactions to computer games and horror games, which really boosted his subscriber growth. Felix gained the title of "most subscribed YouTube channel of all time" on August 15, 2013, surpassing Smosh. He eventually dropped to #2 after YouTube Spotlight surpassed him on November 2, 2013. On December 8, 2013, he beat the channel to reclaim the #1 spot, then lost it four days later to YouTube on December 12, 2013. After a back and forth between both channels, he then regained the top spot eleven days later on December 23, 2013 by becoming the most subscribed youtube channel.

He gained the second most amount of subscribers in 2012, jumping from slightly under 100,000 to 3.5 million subscribers, just behind JennaMarbles, the second-most in 2013, jumping from 3.5 to 19.3 million subscribers that year, just behind YouTube Spotlight, the most in 2014 by gaining nearly 14 million subscribers, the most again in 2015 behind by gaining over 8 million subscribers, the most once more in 2016 by gaining nearly 10 and a half million subscribers, and was ranked in the top twenty most subscriber gains in 2017, gaining nearly 8 million new subscribers that year. The war between him and T-Series resulted in almost 30 million new subscribers in the last four months of 2018, from which 6.62 million was gained only in December.

He's affiliated with 4 popular games, PewDiePie's Tuber Simulator, PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist, Poopdie, and PewDiePie's Pixelings. He also wrote a book in October 2015 called "This Book Loves You". He has transitioned more into vlogging, reviewing and other internet topics. Felix is close friends with Jacksepticeye, Markiplier, CinnamonToastKen, RoomieOfficial, Boyinaband and many others, and is known to collaborate with other YouTuber's rather frequently.

At the start of 2020, Felix took a hiatus from YouTube and deactivated his Twitter account. He then returned on February 21, 2020, with the video "I went on a break for 30 days & THIS HAPPENED". He now streams exclusively on YouTube after signing a deal with them.

Pewdiepie and Markiplier

Gmod

They have joined each other's videos in Prop Hunt and Murder episodes. Felix didn't take games seriously though, enjoying Minx's trolling Mark. But when he really tried to hide, he got angry or panicked when he got killed. He later joined Mark and Jacksepticeye in Sandbox, when they all tried to make some reactive vehicles. Mark died at the end of the episode though by Felix's "brofist"

Other

in the video "YOUTUBER EDITION", PewDiePie's face was used along with Mark's known friends. There, Markiplier just threw him in a pit of thousands of mines. Markiplier challenged Felix in Best Fiends charity tournament. However, when both he and Markiplier came last place (both 56 level), he was certain that he was a bit farther. They also battled each other in SpeedRunners, though both lost to UberHaxorNova. Markiplier sometimes joins PewDiePie in livestreams and was featured on Felix's podcast, BroKen. They also played Worms Clan Wars and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Multiplayer with Ohmwrecker. He sometimes plays games like Gang Beasts with Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, and CinnamonToastKen.

In his first and only video playing "Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location', Felix is seen wearing a moustache and does an impression of Mark in a playful manner, while also criticising the game on several occasions. People hated the fact that Felix made fun of the game and didn't get scared, which he addressed in the video "MY WORST VIDEO". Felix also explained that he didn't enjoy the game and that it was impossible for him to get scared while playing it, due him to finding the jumpscares predictable and boring.

In the video "I Literally Won't Shut Up Until You Subscribe To PewDiePie", Mark promotes PewDiePie in the subscriber war against T-Series, and encourages his audience to subscribe to him.

Trivia

  • The name "Pewdie" was created from pew, the sound a laser makes, and die, what happens when you get hit by a laser. However, after forgetting the password to his original YouTube account under the name Pewdie, he created a similarly named one by adding the word pie because he "fuckin' loves pie," thus forming "PewDiePie".
