The Super Bowl is the largest single television event of the year, which makes sense that popular YouTuber MrBeast would choose the big game as the opportune moment to advertise for people to subscribe to Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg.

The largest YouTuber on the platform has had his top spot threatened for months from Indian music label T-Series, which led to hordes of content creators rallying on PewDiePie’s behalf to prevent the overthrow.

In his latest video, MrBeast took his audience on a wild journey through Super Bowl Sunday with the main objective of advertising PewDiePie to the millions of viewers tuning into the game.

MrBeast had the idea of commissioning special blankets to take to Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium where the big game would be held.

The blankets would be a bit risky, however, leading them to wear sweatshirts that read ‘Sub 2 PewDiePie’ when lined up together as a backup plan.

On gameday, the crew tried to get in with their blankets, but were immediately asked to throw them away. With backups in place, though, they were still confident their plan would work out.

MrBeast and company were sitting slightly to the left behind the goal post that would allow them to be on screen if a team were to attempt a kick in their direction.

Well at 5:35 in the first quarter the Patriots lined up for a quick, but it missed to the left, directly where MrBeast and friends were positioned.

Although watchers were either reeling or cheering from the miss, the scheme had accomplished its goal. The team were able to get their message on the big screen for everyone to see.

MrBeast had an improbable goal, but through persistence, planning, and a kick that went wide left, the team saw their insane mission through.

It seems to have paid off, too, as PewDiePie’s lead over T-Series has grown to almost 150,000 despite having fallen to only 40,000 prior to the Super Bowl.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
