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!

Most predictions had PewDiePie losing the top spot weeks ago!

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!

A fan of popular YouTuber Corpse Husband has taken her dedication to the next level by getting an image of his hair tattooed on her, after he posted a picture of a single strand of his hair to celebrate one million Instagram followers.

Corpse Husband is a YouTuber who has experienced a rather abrupt surge in popularity this year, accumulating a wave of new fans after jumping on the Among Us hype, scoring views in the many millions for both his old and new content.

He started YouTube in 2015, and focused primarily on narrating spooky stories online with his mesmerizingly deep voice, though notably has not yet revealed his face.

His viewers are certainly passionate, and even won out against possibly the biggest fandom on the planet when fans of Corpse Husband and BTS tried to see who could ‘ratio’ Mr Beast’s tweet the hardest, with Corpse winning by a tiny margin and securing $10,000 for charity.

Corpse Husband’s sudden rise to popularity has been unprecedented.

But one fan decided to take her support to an entirely new level, after Corpse revealed a single strand of his hair on Instagram.

As he doesn’t ever show his face, fans have naturally become curious as to who the person attached to the incredible voice is, and Corpse has played along with people’s curiosity by doing miniscule reveals of different parts of himself.

First it was #onlyhands, and this time around in celebration of him hitting 1 million followers on Instagram, he revealed a single strand of his hair in a reveal he called #onlystrands. The bizarrely atmospheric black and white image now has over 560,000 likes and counting.

A post shared by Corpse Husband (@corpse_husband) on

Dedicated fan CorpseBaddie on Twitter decided she wanted to immortalize the image, and did that in the most permanent way possible by actually tattooing the hair strand on her ribs.

The October 25 tweet revealing the tattoo blew up at a rapid rate, and at the time of writing it has garnered over 30,000 likes.

Speaking about the sudden interest in her brand new tattoo, CorpseBaddie sent a message to her favorite creator. “So Corpse Husband this blew up. I have one question, can I play a game of Among Us with y’all?”

Though he has yet to respond, an Among Us collab between the pair would certainly be entertaining for those that have followed her tattoo journey.

The tattoo is just a testament to how unprecedented Corpse Husband’s rise to popularity has been, and this is certainly only the beginning of his fans’ loyalty.
