In the fallout of the ill-conceived YouTube Rewind 2018, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg decided to deliver his fans a rewind they were hoping for and was rewarded with an astonishing but equally unexpected milestone.

The YouTube Rewind 2018 infamously earned the title of the Most Disliked Video on its own platform as fans seemed to loathe the company’s decision to include very little of the internet’s highlights instead opting for a watered-down reimagining of the year.

So naturally, YouTube’s highest subscribed creator PewDiePie made his version of a rewind that was met with the most support of any non-music video piece of content on the site, ever.

The video’s accolade carries with it a stark contrast to the subject of its parody.

YouTube’s Rewind took a week of being released to garner the record-breaking dislikes and PewDiePie’s Rewind took less than one week to skyrocket into the top position.

What’s more impressive is the style in which the Pewds achieved it having 6.68 million likes with a 99.2 like-percentage for the Rewind thus far.

PewDiePie ran away with the title, dethroning the previous most-liked non-music video whinderssonnunes’s “Criança de Rico e Criança de Pobre” that has 4.5 million likes at a 99.08 like-percentage.

The Rewind’s incredible success has made the Swedish YouTuber the owner of the only video in the Top 100 most liked videos on the site that isn’t a music video.

PewDiePie seems to have stumbled on an moment that will live in YouTube history and have fans talking until 2019’s rewind.


Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
