YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg and his fiance, Marzia Bisognin, appeared in a surprise QnA video on March 3 – marking Marzia’s first return to YouTube in nearly four months.

Marzia announced that she was quitting the platform after seven years of regular content creation in October 2018, and has been absent ever since – until now.

The YouTuber-turned-entrepreneur admitted that she’d missed her time on the site, particularly being able to talk about “anything she wanted” in the unique way that YouTube allowed.

“I feel good,” she began. “The first two months after I quit, I really missed it a lot – making videos, editing, but also sharing things.”

However, Marzia also noted that being free of the platform allowed her to focus on her current work, which includes creating products for her online store, ‘Mai.’

“At the same time, it has given me what I wanted, which was the time to focus on something else, so it’s good to have that,” she continued.

The two filmed the video in Marzia’s ‘clay room,’ where she makes handmade pottery, jewelry, and decor for Mai.

Marzia has long been an entrepreneur, having created multiple fashion lines and even beauty boxes in the past – as well as an animated series based on her pugs, Maya and Edgar.

While she admitted to feeling like a “fraud” in her goodbye video, it appears that Marzia has finally “found her own path,” as she wanted – all ahead of her upcoming wedding with PewDiePie, which is being kept strictly under wraps for the time being.

TikTok’s Owa Owa dog: All you need to know about Pudgywoke

Most dogs are adorable, but some can be outright terrifying. One dog on TikTok fits both categories, and he’s gone viral for his distinctive “owa owa” noise. 

Over the last week, the internet has gone crazy for this one very small and elderly Chihuahua called Pudgywoke, who went viral on TikTok after its owner, Malachy James, asked, “Can I get an Owa Owa?” Pudgy responded by biting his headphone mic and actually saying “owa owa.”

The videos of the adorable, but angry, pup have taken the app by storm, with some clips amassing more than 50 million views. Pudgy himself now has over 6.3 million followers on the platform.

What’s the origin?

Despite blowing up over the last couple of weeks, Pudgy has been gracing the internet with his “owa owa’s” since December 5, when James posted a stitch reacting to a woman scooping macaroni from a dish in order to show off the wet sound, only for it to be completely dry.

James asks Pudgy for a reaction, and he makes a hilarious growling noise – which some commenters said sounded like fax machine, a cicada, and even a dial-up modem.

In one TikTok, James tells the story of how he got Pudgy and assures fans that Pudgy is okay. He thinks that Pudgy was once hit by a car after running away for a short time, because he started making the noises shortly after the incident.

In the last couple of weeks, Pudgy has now turned into a meme. Several TikTokers have had their own take on “owa owa,” including Joe Mele, who tried it out with his own dog and even his dad.

The term has also popped up on almost every platform, with “Can I get an owa owa?” being commented on Instagram posts, Twitch streams, YouTube videos, and Tweets. Pudgy even appears in the “Thank you for changing my life” meme.

At the time of writing, the tag #owaowa has 45.6 million views on TikTok, and continues to gain momentum. Pudgy has certainly earned influencer status.
