YouTube’s king of big-budget videos is advocating for the platform’s king of subscribers in a major way – and it seems to be working!

MrBeast bought every billboard in his city to advocate for YouTube’s most-subscribed creator, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, who is quickly being overtaken by Bollywood music label T-Series.

MrBeast went on an advertising tirade to prevent PewDiePie’s defeat by the corporation, purchasing billboards, wrapping a truck, and even making an appearance on local radio stations in an effort to keep the King of YouTube on top of the heap.

“I just wanted to tell you guys to go subscribe to PewDiePie,” MrBeast implored on one station. “I want him to remain the number one most subscribed to YouTuber. I would just be ashamed if he got passed.”

MrBeast also placed advertisements on televisions in his local airport, and even spread his message to fellow drivers on the road, leaning out of his car window to ask another driver if she had subscribed to PewDiePie.

Ever since his video covering the campaign released on October 26, PewDiePie has seen a major influx of subscribers in a last-minute effort to defend the king of YouTube from his corporate enemy. 

In fact, PewDiePie gained a massive 36,000 subs in just the first hour after the video was uploaded.

While T-Series was projected to overtake PewDiePie by early 2019, it looks as if the label might overtake him three months ahead of schedule – but both the BeastGang and the Bro army aren’t backing down any time soon.

The Cartoon filter has become the newest trend to rise to prominence on TikTok, with users flocking to use it. If you don’t know how to get it, but want to, simply follow the steps below. 

TikTok is, for the most part, all about jumping on a trend. Be it a dance routine, reacting to another uploading, or dueting with someone, the social media app is dominating by trends. 

Some of the most popular trends have come from being able to add a filter. We’ve seen filters that make TikTokers look like an Anime character, some that turn everything black and white, as well as others that turn you into a Disney character of your choosing. 

A handful of these filters are built into TikTok, and it’s just a case of adding them to your video, but others – like the new, incredibly popular Cartoon filter – require you to go elsewhere. 

Trends have played a huge role in TikTok’s success.

Where to get the Cartoon filter for TikTok

In the case of the Cartoon filter, it’s exactly what it sounds like – it’ll make you look like a cartoon character. A few of these have popped up previously, but the new one is the best of the lot. 

However, for this one, you will need to go into Snapchat to get in. Simply head over there, add the filter to your face, take a photo or video, and then save it to your camera roll.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll then be able to upload it to TikTok and share it with the world. It’s a simple enough process once you’ve jumped through the first few Snapchat-related hurdles to get it.

  1. Open Snapchat and click the smiley face on the right-hand side
  2. Click explore, again in the bottom right 
  3. Search ‘Cartoon’ and select ‘Cartoon by Snapchat’
  4. Take your photo or video
  5. Save it to your Camera Roll
  6. Upload to Tiktok and away you go!

How long this filter trend sticks around on TikTok remains to be seen, so you’ll want to get your videos recorded and get them out before everyone moves on to the next one.

What that’ll be, though, who knows. We’re approaching the holiday season and new years, so maybe it’ll be related to that.
