Swedish YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has championed the idea of raiding the Vatican following the viral Area 51 plan, and in his latest episode of Meme Review, explained he really wants it to happen.

PewDiePie is the biggest content creator on YouTube, with over 100 million subscribers and videos like his Meme Review show, where he discusses the latest images and clips going viral on the internet, regularly drawing in millions of viewers.

Following the Area 51 raid, which the Swede called a “win”, he joked the Vatican, which is the home of the pope, should be the next target and just a week later, he’s already explaining why he wants this to happen.

During his October 1 edition of Meme Review, the topic of the Vatican raid came up again, and the 29-year-old couldn’t help but celebrate the fact that his joke had gained traction.

“Can we force this meme?” PewDiePie said while laughing. “The thing is, I kind of want to see this happen. I know this meme was terribly forced, it came right after Area 51 which was already dragged out.”

“I really want to. I legitimately want to see what’s in the Vatican archives!”

Clip starts at 8:36 for mobile users.

As for what they hope to see inside the Vatican, one meme creator even suggested they could find Jesus hidden inside, with PewDiePie sending a message to him should he be watching the video.

“Jesus, if you’re watching this and they have YouTube down there, we’re coming,” quipped the YouTube star. “We got you bro, we’re going to save you!”

Of course, PewDiePie has no intention of actually storming the Vatican, and doesn’t want any of his viewers to attempt it, but the meme potential is definitely of interest to the Swede.

While the Vatican raid idea has certainly taken off with his massive audience, it hasn’t quite had the same mainstream appeal as the raid on Area 51 in search for the truth about aliens.


TikTok’s Owa Owa dog: All you need to know about Pudgywoke

Most dogs are adorable, but some can be outright terrifying. One dog on TikTok fits both categories, and he’s gone viral for his distinctive “owa owa” noise. 

Over the last week, the internet has gone crazy for this one very small and elderly Chihuahua called Pudgywoke, who went viral on TikTok after its owner, Malachy James, asked, “Can I get an Owa Owa?” Pudgy responded by biting his headphone mic and actually saying “owa owa.”

The videos of the adorable, but angry, pup have taken the app by storm, with some clips amassing more than 50 million views. Pudgy himself now has over 6.3 million followers on the platform.

What’s the origin?

Despite blowing up over the last couple of weeks, Pudgy has been gracing the internet with his “owa owa’s” since December 5, when James posted a stitch reacting to a woman scooping macaroni from a dish in order to show off the wet sound, only for it to be completely dry.

James asks Pudgy for a reaction, and he makes a hilarious growling noise – which some commenters said sounded like fax machine, a cicada, and even a dial-up modem.

In one TikTok, James tells the story of how he got Pudgy and assures fans that Pudgy is okay. He thinks that Pudgy was once hit by a car after running away for a short time, because he started making the noises shortly after the incident.

In the last couple of weeks, Pudgy has now turned into a meme. Several TikTokers have had their own take on “owa owa,” including Joe Mele, who tried it out with his own dog and even his dad.

The term has also popped up on almost every platform, with “Can I get an owa owa?” being commented on Instagram posts, Twitch streams, YouTube videos, and Tweets. Pudgy even appears in the “Thank you for changing my life” meme.

At the time of writing, the tag #owaowa has 45.6 million views on TikTok, and continues to gain momentum. Pudgy has certainly earned influencer status.
