For the past five years, Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, more known as PewDiePie, has been at the top of YouTube subscriber’s list with over 85 million subscribers on his gaming channel. Even after sitting in the YouTube throne for so long, a dethrone might be approaching. A music label company from India, T-Series, has been making an outbreak of subscribers coming up only a few thousand subscribers behind PewDiePie. With this close race, both channels are fighting to hold the title, especially PewDiePie.

PewDiePie is so desperate to hold his title that he had even resorted to making a video of himself playing Fortnite.  Fortnite is a game that he has consistently made fun of and criticized. But PewDiePie is not the only one trying to gain recognition to his channel.

The popular YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson, who is more known for the name Mr. Beast, had shown up the 2019 Super Bowl with a small group of friends who all wore shirts that stated ‘Subscribe to PewDiePie’ on the front and the back. Mr. Beast’s attempt to promote PewDiePies’ channel turned out to be a massive success as the shirts appeared several times during the Super Bowl game and even ended up making it onto an official tweet on Twitter posted by ESPN.

His promotion attempt was a great success with just him and his group of friends, although, there was a lot more than some people realized.

Mr. Beast claimed, “We bought seats right behind the field goal, every kick on the end zone with Rams paint will have our sub 2 PewDiePie shirts.”
