Swedish video creator PewDiePie and Indian YouTube giant T-series have been battling it out for the #1 most subscribed YouTube account for the past several months. Last week, T-series passed PewDiePie by roughly 15,000 subscribers. PewDiePie’s response? Absolutely brilliant.
See the video below:
The music video includes several popular YouTubers, including RoomieOfficial, Boyinaband, and Mr. Beast and it’s what the kids would call an absolute banger.
He starts out by what seems to be a sincere congratulations to the rival YouTube channel. But he then begins to subtly throw shade at T-series in the most perfect way throughout the remainder of the video, including accusations of tax evasion and invalid cease and desist letters sent by T-series.
Something incredible happened after the video was released: PewDiePie regained the throne as the most subscribed channel on YouTube. As I’m writing this, he now holds an incredible 137,000 subscriber lead on T-series. The biggest question now is whether or not T-series will respond with a congratulations to Pewds. This could go on forever….
