Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg’s zodiac sign is Scorpio, as he was born on October 24, 1989. He comes from Sweden, and he was born in Gothenburg. Since his early years, he was very keen on gaming, and he developed an interest in art.
He attended Göteborgs Högre Samskola High School, and after finishing his education there, in 2008, he went on to attend Chalmers University of Technology. PewDiePie didn’t see the point of staying in college, and he thought that his place is not there, like he doesn’t belong. He left college and decided to do things that are going to put a smile on his face.
In the beginning, he was doing things on Photoshop. He created a YouTube channel that he named at first Pewdie, but shortly after, he renamed it in what it is today, PewDiePie.
He started commenting on gameplays, and his personality and humor were very appealing to some. In just a short time, he became a sensation online. His videos were hilarious and entertaining, and he reached an exceptional number of subscribers over a short period. In 2012 he reached 5 million.
Marker Studio was his next step, and he joined forces with them as he wanted to expand on his career. Today, PewDiePie has over 50 million subscribers on YouTube, and there are over 3500 videos with various content. Lets Play segment is the most popular on his channel, and there is other stuff you can watch Felix do.
With such massive fame, there is got to be some negativity and criticism. He has a lot of people leaving mean comments and hating on the things he does. He is addressing them in several videos, and at the end of each video, there is a bro fist he does. That became his signature move. The YouTuber is also vlogging from time to time.
The social media personality has created and published a game titled PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist. That was in 2015, and later, he issued a book he titled This Book Loves You. He went on to receive an award in the Best Gaming Channel, Show, or Series category during the Streamy Awards.
The YouTuber ended up on the Forbes list as the highest-earning YouTuber in 2016.
In addition to his gaming channel, the Internet sensation also has a project titled Water Campaign. It is a charity organization, and the program managed to reach $400,000.
Since he has been on YouTube for many years now and is a significant influence on social media as well as on the whole online community, many young people look up to him. “The thing that has made YouTube so successful is that you can relate to the people you’re watching to a much higher degree than to the people you see on TV.” That is why you will find some new content on his channel, in which he addresses some scandals and controversies connected to his name and work. “With my channel, and what people associate with the Internet, most people think it goes viral, you become this huge thing super quick. I never had an explosion or a huge thing. It’s just been something that has progressively been growing. It’s been building,” said PewDiePie once.
He also stated, “When I started my YouTube channel in 2010, I never imagined that one day it would be the most subscribed channel in the world and that I would be a part of such a great community.”
