Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is YouTube’s most-subscribed creator- but rival channel and Bollywood label T-Series is close behind. However, fans are doing everything in their power to keep PewDiePie on top of the heap – even at the cost of their own financial wellbeing.

One such fan, YouTuber ‘Day by Dave,’ paid actual celebrities via the ‘Cameo’ website in the hopes that their endorsement would help PewDiePie beat out his Bollywood nemesis.

Day by Dave’s expensive experiment saw support the likes of ‘Mark’s’ actor Greg Sestero from Tommy Wiseau’s infamous film, ‘The Room,’ as well as WWE Super Star ‘The Great Khali,’ and ‘Harry Potter’s’ very own ‘Percy Weasley.’

Dave even managed to get fellow YouTubers on his side, such as young Vardan Antonyan from David Dobrik’s vlog series, as well as PewDiePie’s previous foe, ‘Dillon the Hacker.’

Dave jokingly admitted that his video was a “bad idea” due to the expense of the project. However, Dave likewise stated that the celebs in question were “all so nice” and accommodating, and thanked them for their support in the fight against T-Series.

PewDiePie himself retweeted the video on November 29, along with a slew of other fans’ insane shows of solidarity – including that of Team 10 YouTuber Justin Roberts, who actually bought a million dollar billboard advertising PewDiePie’s channel in New York’s Times Square.

Roberts admitted that MrBeast’s city wide ad campaign had inspired the project, which took place during his Thanksgiving holiday. He managed to buy the “most famous billboard in Times Square,” which sits just next to the ball-drop on New Year’s Eve, using the simple message “Keep PewDiePie number one on YouTube.”

YouTube star Jake Paul shook up the boxing world after being confirmed for the upcoming Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match — but his statement from a recent press conference is sparking rumors that he may not be fit to compete.

The youngest Paul brother boasts a short, if successful, boxing history; after defeating fellow influencer Deji on the undercard of Logan Paul’s August 2018 bout, Jake took his talents to the professional level, taking out YouTuber AnEsonGib in a first round KO in January 2020.

Now, Jake has been confirmed to fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson — but some are wondering if he’ll even appear in the ring.

An October 29 press conference saw an unexpected development from Jake’s side, with the YouTuber-turned-boxing pro appearing from what seemed to be a hospital room.

ESPN journalist Ariel Helwani was understandably taken aback by the scenery, and asked Jake where he was — which lead to a surprising, if a bit humorous, answer.

“Uh, I’m just chilling man, I came to the hospital to get a little check up,” he replied.

When asked why he was at the hospital, the YouTuber had an even more astonishing response: “We were having a little morning practice, and my team was afraid that I was turning into Iron Man. I punched a hole through a car.”

Needless to say, it seems like Robinson isn’t worried if his opponent will show up on fight night, claiming that Paul “has to show up” in spite of his purported injury.

However, some fans are claiming that they think Paul has a black eye, or even a broken nose, although his mask admittedly makes it a bit difficult to see if these alleged injuries are for real.

This isn’t the first time Jake has taken a trip to the hospital before a fight, and it may not be his last — but considering his ambition and near-constant training, fans can expect that he will turn up for the show (although whether he will “turn out” is still up in the air).
