The last ditch effort from MrBeast to help PewDiePie defeat T-Series in the battle for YouTube supremacy appears to actually be working!
MrBeast, who has 11 million subscribers on the platform himself, has been attempting to help the current king of YouTube to fend off the advances of T-Series, an Indian music label that uploads multiple Bollywood music videos each day.
First, MrBeast put together an advert campaign to get people to subscribe to PewDiePie, real name Felix Kjellberg, and it temporarily allowed the Swedish star to pull away, but not for long.
The Indian channel’s constant uploads and channel growth made it clear to anyone that was taking notice that PewDiePie would be dethroned before the end of November, but MrBeast once again came to his rescue on November 25… by saying ‘PewDiePie’ 100,000 times!
It took MrBeast almost 12 hours to complete the challenge, and he even announced new ‘ranks’ in the ‘bro army’ of PewDiePie supporters which included General rank for anyone that put ‘subscribe to PewDiePie’ on their social media and convinced their whole class and family to subscribe!
While MrBeast’s increasingly entertaining and bizarre efforts to help Pewds stay ahead of T-Series have been fun to watch, it may come as a surprise to hear that they also appear to be working, and working well!
MrBeast’s video of the YouTube stream has performed well on the platform, crossing four million views by November 27, and PewDiePie’s gap over T-Series has also increased from under 100,000 to over 250,000 and becoming the first YouTuber to break the 72 million subscribers mark!
And MrBeast isn’t finished there! The YouTuber has already suggested that he will purchase a Super Bowl commercial if PewDiePie can stay ahead for long enough.
He also revealed that he wanted to travel to India and set up a similar ad campaign to the one that he ran in the United States. At this point, we wouldn’t be surprised by anything!
