YouTube king Felix 'PewDiePie' Kjellberg revealed that the next guest he wants to host his iconic Meme Review series is none other than Facebook creator and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

PewDiePie's 'Meme Review' has become an iconic stable of his YouTube channel, as the Swede takes on all the current popular memes on the internet, and breaks them down with scores. The show has become so popular, he's even had Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and TV psychiatrist Dr Phil host the series.

However, the YouTube king surprised his audience during his November 1 upload when he revealed that the next person he would want to host the series is Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and had the most hilarious explanation for why he wants the tech-billionaire to react to memes.

PewDiePie wants Zuckerbeg on Meme Review

The YouTube star was reacting to the 'rare insults' subreddit, when one of the submissions was about the Facebook CEO's infamous testimony to the US congress in 2018 that quickly became a source for memes. "Mark Zuckerberg looks like a guy in a zombie movie who's been bitten, but is trying to keep a secret," Pewds read out loud, before bursting into laughter.

"It's funny because it's so accurate!" he exclaimed before reflecting on how much he misses the memes made about the tech giant. "I am so sad, that we scared Mark Zuckerberg out of the internet. That was such a beautiful time when he was a part of the internet you know?"

After reminiscing about all the great memes that were created based on the Facebook owner, he then extended the offer to the CEO and pleaded, "I want him back! Zuck, please come back! You can be a part of Meme Review!"

The YouTube king then quipped "His Facebook stock would go right up, please!" before inviting him once more. "Zuck you have my number, just call me any time. It will be the most beautiful redemption of all time!"

This wouldn't be the first time that PewDiePie's Meme Review has been hosted by a celebrity. The series has had Elon Musk and creator of Rick and Morty Justin Roiland in February, Dr Phil in August, and even conservative political pundit Ben Shapiro in 2018.

While the YouTuber’s channel exploded in popularity in 2019 after launching his Minecraft series in June, Pewds channel grew substantially over the years due to reaction series like Meme Review, Last Week I Asked You, and his now retired PewNews. Should he get the Facebook CEO, the memes would write themselves.
