Why PewDiePie Has Become The Internet’s Biggest Star

By | August 11, 2018

PewDiePie is a popular “Let’s Play” YouTuber who is the most subscribed individual on YouTube with over 63 million subscribers. Felix Kjellberg is the man behind the PewDiePie persona. PewDiePie made a name for himself  “Let’s Play”videos, he records himself playing a game, sharing footage of both the gameplay and his reaction to what’s happening on screen. His random, off the wall behavior and reactions have earned him a lot of viewers, especially when he’s playing through horror games.  A college drop out who played games full-time on YouTube, he has said, “not easy” to discuss with his parents. From more or less the beginning, though, Kjellberg’s videos were a hit. He founded a new name PewDiePie in 2010 and began uploading videos of himself playing horror games, which he would narrate in absurd, exaggerated ways. Kjellberg has built YouTube’s largest audience and signed to Disney-owned Maker Studios.

Well, he’s commonly described as a video-game commentator, it’s probably more accurate. Kjellberg’s YouTube persona is enthusiastic; his delivery is underproduced and unscripted. “YouTube breaks the barrier between the audience and the creator,” Kjellberg told the magazine. “They feel a connection to the one they’re watching.”
