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.

Instagram: @pewdiepieThe Swede is the biggest YouTuber in the world, with over 102 million subscribers.

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.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
