YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is competing with Bollywood label T-Series for the most subscribers – and he has received help from one of YouTube’s biggest stars, in the process.

PewDiePie called on controversial YouTuber Logan Paul for help in his task during an episode of ‘LWIAY’ on December 5, asking that they put their differences aside and claiming that he was “desperate” for assistance.

Paul has since responded to Pewd’s cry for aid – with a few surprising twists. Paul agreed to help the Swede in a response video on December 6, and is even raising a massive charity fund.

Paul placed a trackable link in the description of his video, which automatically subscribes users to PewDiePie’s channel (if they aren’t, already).

In addition, Paul claimed that he will donate one Swedish Krona for every subscriber gained (via his link, only) to the Kevin and Margaret Hines Foundation, a Swedish charity that aims to normalize the conversation around suicide and mental health.

Paul even created a special hashtag for the movement, dubbed ‘#PewDiePaul’ – but that wasn’t the end of his scheme. As payment for helping PewDiePie in his fight against T-Series, Paul sent him a special article of Maverick merch, which he required that Pewds wear in one of his upcoming videos.

While PewDiePie has yet to meet this demand, he has seen help from multiple YouTube stars in the midst of his battle, with the likes of Markiplier, Justin Roberts, and even major celebrities promoting his channel in the face of his Bollywood nemesis.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.

Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.

The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.

According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
