Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has given YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg a fairly pointed suggestion in regards to the YouTuber’s ‘Meme Review’ show.

Musk posted a humorous Tweet on January 27, which featured a picture of the tech millionaire holding aloft one of his own flame throwers with the caption, “Host meme review?”

PewDiePie had a fairly bemused response to the request, appearing to entertain the possibility of their collaboration on the show.

“✋🤠🤚 Don’t shoot!” Pewds replied. “Please host 🙏 We need this!”

That wasn’t the end of Musk’s interaction, either; he likewise had a short conversation with popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson, who triple-dog-dared the CEO to host the show – to which Musk raised a $5 fee.

“I’ll give you $5 and I’ll buy a Tesla,” MrBeast returned.

“You drive a hard bargain, but… okay,” Musk replied.

This wouldn’t be the first time a notable figure has appeared on Meme Review, should the Musk collab actually come to fruition; conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro made an appearance on the show in early November of 2018, after being jokingly invited on by PewDiePie in a previous segment.

Musk himself is no stranger to the internet community. He and Fortnite pro FaZe Tfue had a hilarious interaction on Twitter in early January 2019, after the gamer purchased a Tesla due to Musk’s response to one of his Tweets.

Musk has likewise spoken out about his favorite character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, claiming that his fighter of choice is Zero Suit Samus.

Californian YouTube Among Us sensation Corpse Husband has apparently appeared out of nowhere, but who exactly is he?

It’s safe to say that every gamer, non-gamer and Youtube fanatic knows about Among Us, the newest party game that sees players attempt to decipher who the impostor is before they brutally murder all of their comrades and win the game.

Thousands of streamers have jumped on the Among Us bandwagon, with names like xQc, Valkyre and Trainwrecks dominating the Among Us Charts. The game has even attracted political figures, namely American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who used the game as a platform to reach out to the gaming youth of today.

On YouTube, however, the Among Us scene rests firmly within the grasp of Corpse Husband (or Corpse, who has become an overnight Among Us sensation. Despite his synonymity with the game though, Corpse has a long and varied streaming past despite only being the tender age of 23.

The underground YouTube star has become an Among Us sensation.

From YouTube spook to Among Us fame

Corpse’s Youtube career began in the dark realms of horror story narration. Citing online CreepyPasta narration channels such as Mr.Nightmare, Be.Buster and Lazy Masquerade as inspiration, Corpse created his own iteration of a horror narration channel, with his distinctive deep voice adding to the spookiness of his videos. This mystery was only amplified by Corpse’s decision to hide his face in the online sphere.

While Corpse’s YouTube still provides every horror fan with a video playground, his most recent Among Us videos have racked up millions of views, blowing his creepier videos out of the YouTube waters in terms of views.

Focusing on how to win the game as the impostor – even if you have admitted you are the impostor – the three current Among Us videos on his channel have earned him a total of 26.5 million views. That’s hardly a number to smirk at.

Being the impostor in Among Us certainly requires the gift of a silver tongue, something that Corpse clearly possesses. It’ll be interesting to see whether his popularity fades as the game slips out of the mainstream media, but judging by his views that doesn’t seem too likely. After all, if you’re not watching him for Among Us right now is the perfect time of year to sit back, relax and be terrified.
