YouTube’s king of big-budget videos may have just teased his next major project, as revealed in a Tweet he published on November 15.
Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson hinted at a ‘big’ plan for PewDiePie’s next subscriber milestone, calling for Pewd’s ‘army of nine-year-olds’ to continue their fight against competitor channel T-Series in the interim.
“I need the nine-year-old army to hold out for a while,” he wrote above a screenshot of T-Series’ and PewDiePie’s subscriber counts – which are steadily growing closer. “I have something big planned, but I need time. There is hope!”

MrBeast is an avid supporter of YouTube’s most-subscribed creator, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg. In fact, MrBeast even created a major advertisement campaign across his own city, buying out every billboard and even a truck to promote PewDiePie’s channel.
This promotion saw a massive increase in subscribers to PewDiePie, who was nearly overtaken by Bollywood label T-Series in late October – months ahead of Social Blade’s projections for the channel’s growth.[ad name=”article3″]
While Pewds has since reached a whopping total of 70 million subs, he and T-Series are neck and neck, yet again; but MrBeast isn’t giving up hope.
“I’ll fight ‘til the day I die,” MrBeast said in response to a fan, who asked how long he would defend Pewds against his Bollywood nemesis.
While MrBeast fights on American soil, one YouTuber is even supporting PewDiePie from the inside; Indian YouTuber ‘Saiman’ likewise bought out billboards and passed out flyers in PewDiePie’s defense, following a similar campaign for T-Series a few weeks beforehand.
