PewDiePie (aka Felix Kjellberg) is a YouTuber from Sweden who has the most subscribers on the site. He is close friends with Jacksepticeye, as he often does gameplays with him. PewDiePie lives in Brighton, in England. He has a girlfriend named Marzia Bisognin (from Italy), known as 'CutiePieMarzia' (now renamed to 'Marzia') on YouTube.
Pewds previously focused on creating horror let's plays of popular games from 2012 - 2015, where, during that time period, people criticized him for doing over the top reactions and also criticized some of his fans for threatening other fans of other channels. Besides playing games, he donated money to charities such as 'Save the Children' and 'Water Aid.'
Since 2016, Felix began changing his overall outlook on his channel, from dropping his well known intro and the 'Brofist,' to veering away from video games and focusing on things that are cropping up online and in the media. While some fans are pleased about the new changes, other fans disproved of them, citing in the YouTube comments as "missing the old Pewds."
Felix has received backlash from the media for various reasons, the most recent being in 2017 where Felix made anti-semetic jokes in a video before the release of his second season of Scare PewDiePie (which Jack starred in); the season was prepared to hit YouTube Red, before YouTube noticed the controversial video after Wall Street Journal reported it and cancelled the full season.
Both Jack and Felix later expressed dismay in individual videos at the cancellation, saying they spent hours in LA (where it was filmed) to get it right and were expecting fans reactions. Pewds has revealed in a video that the season is still available but cannot be viewed.
PewDiePie's relations to JacksepticeyeEdit
PewDiePie often played Garry's Mod with Jack, as they do silly and comedic activities with each other. While they do poke fun at each other, they are actually close friends in real life. Besides from playing games with one another, they also meet and hang out at conventions. Since Jack has moved to Brighton in 2017, they are able to visit each other and create videos, such as Pewds making one of his "5 weird stuff online" videos while at Jack's house.
Jack and Pewds got to know each other when PewDiePie had a shoutout competition (Jack won the shoutout competition, thus resulting in a massive boost in his subscriber count.)
Once, PewDiePie, Jacksepticeye and Markiplier did a Garry's Mod Legoland Funny Montage together.
- In 2015, Felix published a book titled "This Book Loves You."
- He also worked with game developers Outerminds to create three games: PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist (2015), PewDiePie's Tuber Simulator (2016) and Animal Super Squad (2017, abbreviated to ASS).
