During the May 9 episode of the H3 podcast, host Ethan Klein opened up about his relationship with Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg. The comedian congratulated the the Swede on his streaming deal with YouTube Gaming. 

It’s been years since H3H3 and PewDiePie have collaborated together. On the H3 podcast, the Swedish entertainer being on the show only to cancel at the last minute has become a running gag.

This has left some fans wondering if they are still close. During the show’s latest episode, host Ethan Klein opened up to viewers about how he sees their relationship, and revealed they don’t actually talk very often.

H3H3’s Ethan Klein clarifies friendship with PewDiePie

During the latest episode of the H3 podcast, Ethan congratulated Pewds on signing a major deal with YouTube Gaming to stream exclusively on their platform. The host called it a “reconciliation between YouTube and PewDiePie.”

However upon congratulating him, he stopped short of calling him a friend. “So congratulations to my uh.. What is PewDiePie? I hesitate to call him… To my good dude PewDiePie on his exclusive streaming deal!” The podcast’s producer then cut in and asked, “You can’t call him a friend?”

Klein replied, “I think I can call him a friend. Frankly we don’t talk that much. We do talk occasionally. We are definitely friendly. I would hesitate to call him a friend. I don’t want to overstate the closeness. I think a friend is regular contact. We’re friendly, we are definitely friendly.”

(Timestamp 12:15 for mobile users.)

In 2015, PewDiePie flew out to Los Angeles to film the second season of ‘Scare PewDiePie.’ Before leaving, he sat down for an interview with Ethan, in what would end up becoming the second episode of the podcast.

The Swede also helped promote the newly launched show, commenting on the video in 2016 and stating “Only podcast I’m tuned in for am, thanks for having me on!”

The Swedish star helped promote the launch of the podcast back in 2016.

The two creators have not made content together since their 2017 collaboration, however Klein has praised the Swedish star on his show in the past.  In August 2019, the host stated he deserved his success exclaiming, “He grinds so hard. He’s been doing it for so long.”

Only time will tell if the two creators will ever collaborate again. For now, fans will have to settle on being teased each week that PewDiePie will be “definitely” be on the H3 podcast… Next time.

On May 5, the Swedish entertainer celebrated his 10th anniversary on YouTube. While reflecting on his career, he mentioned a vlog he had made with Ethan and Hila, so who knows – maybe the door is still open for a reunion in the future.

FaZe Clan is one of the best-known gaming and content houses on YouTube, and they have some incredible cars to boot.

Billed as “The world’s most subscribed gaming team” FaZe Clan has built itself a reputation as one of the best-known esports teams on the planet. Since its creation in 2010, the team has dominated in Call Of Duty, CS:GO, and more.

With their rise to fame, naturally, their income streams have grown substantially. Therefore, many members of the FaZe team have splashed the cash on awesome cars to showcase their success, here are some of the highlights from each member.

FaZe Clan cars

Faze Adapt

FaZe Adapt has one of the most heavily-customized cars from the clan.

Starting off with what is without a doubt one of the coolest cars in the FaZe Clan collection, Adapt is the owner of a stunning custom Nissan GT-R. Featured on the iconic West Coast Customs channel, this GT-R is a long way from how it left the factory.

With a custom FaZe-themed wrap, new wheels, and custom interior matching the design of the outside, this is one serious ride. Assuming the engine has remained stock, the GT-R puts out an impressive 485bhp from its twin-turbo V6, with the power going to all four wheels.

Faze Rain

FaZe Rain enjoys his “real life Batmobile” in the form of a McLaren 570s.

Adapt isn’t the only member of the FaZe Clan to have a supercar. Rain also has his own high-performance car in the form of his black McLaren 570s. This British-built supercar delivers 562hp to the rear wheels from its twin-turbo V8 engine, resulting in a 0-60 time of just over 3 seconds, on to a top speed of 204mph.

In complete contrast to the McLaren is his other car – a Tesla Model X. This all-electric SUV is perfect for cruising around in silence, but is still cool enough and certainly fast enough to make it the envy of many other YouTubers.

FaZe Megga and FaZe Blaze’s Teslas

A number of the FaZe Clan members own Teslas, such as Blaze and his Model 3.

At only 15 years old, Megga is one of the youngest members. Despite his age, he has already bought his “dream car” in the form of a Tesla Model 3. Clearly the members of FaZe Clan like to go fast AND be eco-conscious.

Not only does Megga own a Tesla, but so does fellow clan member FaZe Blaze, who also owns a Tesla Model 3.

FaZe Rug

G63 AMG FaZe RugFaZe Rug has a G63 AMG similar to this, but in white.

FaZe Rug has owned a number of cool cars over the years, but currently owns a Mercedes-AMG G Wagon, which was recently ‘destroyed’ as part of a prank. Having admitted his want for a Rolls-Royce Phantom, it may only be a matter of time before we see him add one to his garage.

FaZe Clan team cars

Long-time viewers will remember the custom FaZe-Themed Lincoln Navigator.

While a number of the members have individual rides, there is also a ‘team’ car for the FaZe members. Their custom Nissan Armada wrapped in FaZe colors has been spotted a number of times at press events.

Long-time FaZe followers will also remember the customized Lincoln Navigator that they had back in New York City, but that is now long-gone.
