Fans of Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg were left baffled when a nine year old Call of Duty: Black Ops video from the beginning of his career was uploaded to his account. 

PewDiePie may be known today as the largest individual YouTuber in the world with over 104 million subscribers, but the Swede initially got his start a decade ago playing games like Minecraft, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

Posts like Reddit user ‘yurmum10′ joked that it was Pewds’ awful internet to blame. “Imagine having a small pp internet that it took you 9 years to upload another part of your COD gameplay,” they wrote.
