YouTube king Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg finally tied the knot with wife Marzia Bisongin on August 19 after eight years together – and, of course, he vlogged their honeymoon, which included a hilarious callout toward another major YouTuber.

After celebrating their marriage in London’s Kew Gardens, Felix and Marzia took their honeymoon in the lushious jungles of Bali, an island province in Indonesia.

Between traveling to breathtaking waterfalls and historic temples, the couple also relaxed at their hotel, which came complete with a private pool that staff filled with flower petals during their stay.

While their vlog shows ample footage of the couple relaxing in the pool, PewDiePie took the opportunity to make a well-intended jab toward fellow YouTuber Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson, known for the insane stunts and massive cash giveaways in his videos.

“Yo MrBeast,” PewDiePie jokingly challenged. “Bet you never filled a pool a quarter full with roses. Got ‘em!”

Although MrBeast may not have taken on that particular feat, the YouTuber has filled up his neighbor’s pool (and backyard) with 100 million orbeez before – a slightly more destructive challenge when compared to flower petals.

In fact, PewDiePie’s challenge could make for yet another crazy video idea for MrBeast, considering that he revealed his girlfriend to the world in mid-June – and with his habit of dropping massive cash on people, we can only imagine how over-the-top his Valentine’s Day might be.

PewDiePie’s callout was obviously made in good humor, as the two YouTubers have a history of cooperation between each other: the already popular MrBeast went viral in October 2018 after campaigning for Kjellberg’s channel in the thick of his battle with T-Series, and even held up posters for the Swede at the 2018 Super Bowl.

The good-natured challenge was far from the funniest thing to come out of PewDiePie’s honeymoon vacation, though: Kjellberg even recreated a famous scene from The Witcher 3, where Geralt relaxes in a bathtub – albeit, this time, the bath was filled with flowers (and fans are begging him to sell bottles of the bathwater).

PewDiePie pulled off a pretty hilarious Geralt impression during his honeymoon vacation.

While MrBeast has yet to respond to PewDiePie’s odd callout, the YouTuber already has major plans in store for future content later this year, leaving fans waiting for even bigger and better videos from the internet sensation.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
