Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg hilariously baited JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji with the perfect prank. The Swede created “fan art” that had the UK star in tears of laughter.

With over 107 million subscribers, PewDiePie is one of YouTube’s biggest sources for internet humor. The 31-year-old has a show called Meme Review after all, and it was even hosted by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is a connoisseur of memes in his own right.

Kjellberg hilariously trolled fellow content creator KSI during an October upload, and on November 2, the UK personality fell for the prank. The star broke down laughing after realizing he had been baited by the “fan art” joke.

The YouTuber initially created the prank on October 26, submitting fan art to KSI’s subreddit during a video. “Upvote this please for the love of god,” he told viewers before adding “Come on, KSI, please.”

Kjellberg was blown away on November 2 when he realized the “masterpiece” artwork had not only been upvoted by over 70k people, but was now the highest-rated post in the history of KSI’s forum.

“We broke the record on KSI’s subreddit. The top voted of all time! By far.” he said. Pewds was then floored when he saw the amount of Reddit awards he was given. “Yes! Wooooo! Baby! We did it!” he laughed.

Unaware of the meme, KSI was baffled by the fan art being upvoted to the top, and hilariously reacted to it during his latest upload. “What is this? This is one of the worst drawings I’ve ever seen in my life. This is trash! How’s this person make me look like an uglier version of handsome Squidward?” he joked.

JJ then said the artwork was so offensively bad, he wanted to remove it. “Who the f**k drew this? Find a new hobby, mate, because this ain’t it!” The UK star then realized he was trolled by PewDiePie when someone uploaded a video of the YouTuber drawing the portrait.

Changing his tune on the drawing, he exclaimed, “What a marvelous piece of art! Amazing! One of the best pieces of art that I’ve ever seen. Unbelievable!” while breaking into laughter. Olatunji then stated, “What a rollercoaster! That makes so much sense. Okay, that’s why!”

Over the past year, KSI and PewDiePie have continued to have friendly banter. In previous uploads, the two have jokingly poked fun at each other, culminating in Pewds’ epic fan art prank.

At the time of writing, the Swedish star has yet to see JJ’s reaction. However, he will no doubt be in stitches when he eventually sees the UK’s hilarious confusion.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
