Swedish YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is in a nail-biting race with Bollywood label T-Series to become the most subscribed channel on YouTube. Although he came back from a close call on December 3, thanks to the combined efforts of Markiplier and Jacksepticeye, he’s calling on two more of YouTube’s biggest stars for help.
PewDiePie uploaded an episode of ‘LWIAY’ on December 5, where he reacted to a poll created by YouTuber MrBeast, who asked his audience if he should collaborate with social media stars Logan and Jake Paul in an effort to boost Pewd’s subscriber count.
“Guys, the battle with T-Series is getting intense and casualties are high,” MrBeast Tweeted. “Should we call Logan and Jake Paul for help? Is winning worth sacrificing everything?”

PewDiePie appeared to entertain the idea, and even challenged Paul to assist him in his ongoing battle with T-Series, admitting that he is “desperate” for help.
“I wonder if Logan Paul would do it,” Pewds mused. “I wonder. Could we put our differences aside? Come on Logan, what’s it gonna be? That’s right, I’m that desperate - I’ll take any help I can get.”
MrBeast’s poll leaned heavily in favor of the scheme, with over 76% of participants voting “yes.” However, MrBeast may have another, equally huge plan up his sleeve, as he Tweeted out a few possible hints of collaborating with Fortnite pro FaZe Tfue on December 3.
PewDiePie is seeing support from across the internet in his fight against his Bollywood nemesis, with fans buying out Billboards in Times Square and even paying celebrities to help endorse the Swede’s channel.
