YouTube star Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg recently reminisced about the first video he recorded, and the cringiness of his other older content when he first started out on the platform.

With the recent craze of Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem’s Minecraft Monday sweeping YouTube, the platform’s biggest star PewDiePie has been making his own videos on the game whilst also reflecting about his history.

While this isn’t the first time the Swedish YouTuber has opened up about his past, his latest exchange with his fans revealed details that had not been heard before.

PewDiePie’s beginnings…

“A lot of people seem to think my first video was a Minecraft video. Basically my first video technically that is on my channel is a Minecraft video, but it wasn’t my first video that I uploaded,” PewDiePie said.

The YouTube star had uploaded other videos before his Minecraft video, but decided to remove them due to being too “cringey.”

Showing humility, the YouTube star told his audience that he doesn’t really care about people seeing his older videos anymore – despite them being cringeworthy – and even suggested that he could upload them back to his channel someday. 

He also commented that other YouTubers worry about their entire catalog being perfect, but that there is nothing wrong with messing up by making terrible videos when first starting out.

He could have worked for Mojang

PewDiePie also revealed that he actually lost the first Minecraft video he ever recorded. Amusingly, he told fans that he uploaded it to a website hoping that they would post it, but they never did so sadly, there’s next-to-no hopes of it cropping up online any time soon.

Reflecting further on his beginnings, the YouTuber also described the awkwardness he found when recording himself playing games. “Who am I talking to? I have no audience. Am I supposed to talk to people like there is [someone there]?”

However, his biggest reveal of all was when he admitted that he actually applied to work for Mojang when he was younger after he fell in love with Minecraft. “Mojang, if you leak my email I will kill you”, he laughed.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
