While the Swede has said in the past that he doesn’t care about the race, fans and other personalities have certainly taken an interest - helping to bolster his lead by any way possible. Fellow YouTuber MrBeastYT took everything one step further by securing some advertising at the recent Super Bowl 53.
However, PewDiePie’s interest in the race seems to be growing as he admitted to potentially having made a mistake in taking a break.
The Swede revealed to fans that he is headed on holiday but he is still ready for the fight against T-Series. In his ‘I’ve made a HUGE mistake…’ video, the Swede said: “I’m going on holiday because I feel so confident in my abilities that we will crush them, that’s why. T-Series, bring it!”
While he’s away, the fight will continue right on without missing a beat. “Now, I am going away but I still have videos prepared, that’s right T-Series, that’s right,” he added. “You thought you could beat me, huh - ‘oh, he’s going away’ - got videos prepared, bitch. Suck my Swedish meatballs."
While it remains to be seen if his holiday affects the race for top spot in any way, Pewds clearly cares about the whole thing more than he, perhaps, may want to let on.
