Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson has hatched another plan in the hopes of defeating Bollywood label T-Series from surpassing PewDiePie in subscribers – and it took him over 11 hours to pull off.

MrBeast uploaded a video that exceeded 11 hours and 48 minutes on November 25, where he said PewDiePie’s name over 100,000 times. In keeping with his hatred of T-Series, he likewise destroyed a picture of the label’s logo after every 10,000 words, finally finishing his quest in a state of near-delirium.

Additionally, MrBeast introduced a new concept to reward those who promote PewDiePie’s channel, granting them titles of Private, Corporal, and General, depending on how many people they manage to reach.

He even encouraged fans to persuade their entire high school classes to subscribe to PewDiePie, in order to become a “General in the Bro Army.”

However, that isn’t the end of MrBeast’s ambitions; he also admitted that he had initially planned to travel to India for the video, intending to copy his previous citywide ad campaign and purchase even more billboards across the South Asian country.


While that strategy didn’t pan out in time due to Visa restrictions, he still plans on going through with the project – and even hinted that he might purchase an ad for the 2019 SuperBowl, to boot.

So far, MrBeast’s latest initiative appears to be working; PewDiePie gained a significant surge in subscribers within an hour of MrBeast’s upload, competing with his previous increase of 36,000 subs following MrBeast’s massive advertisement campaign in late October.


Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
