Akshay Chandra6 years ago

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg is a 26-year-old creator of the most subscribed youTube channel called PewDiePie. He is so famous in the YouTube world that he can have his own T.V sitcom in a blink of an eye. Still sticking to his roots; Felix created PewDiePie channel on YouTube back in 2010. That was the time when Bed Intruder song and Twilight Eclipse saga trailer came out.

Pewdie is his YouTube alias and is known for his Let’s Play videos, often choosing horror-themed games. He is been called as the Oprah Winfrey of this YouTube generation as anything he touches ( games,product,books,apps), turns into gold (talk about sales). PewDiePie started his YouTube career train with humble beginnings. He is a dropout from Industrial Economics and Technology Management at the Chalmers University of Technology. According to Felix, he was  happier selling hot dogs and making my own gaming videos back in 2011 – which is now 40 million strong cult community.

So let’s review his YouTube channel as we can’t start our Channel reviews without reviewing “The highest subscribed and viewed YouTube channel as of December 2015”
