YouTube king Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg has sensationally broken yet another milestone on the content sharing platform, despite being on vacation the entire time since his last landmark.

The popular internet personality quietly tied the knot with fiance Marzia Bisognin in August and has been hardly active ever since, only chiming in with a vlog or two on his YouTube channel while enjoying his honeymoon in Bali. 

During that time, however, PewDiePie has gone one better than being the only person to build a YouTube channel with over 100 million subscribers, after quickly hiking up to 101 million.

The jump in subscribers has taken PewDiePie less than a month. In fact, in the last 30 days, from August 10 to September 8, he has gained over 2 million subscribers.

Unfortunately, though, he’s now fallen off the tail of rival channel T-Series – who have 111,000,000 subscribers at the time of writing.

T-Series’ growth has been even more impressive but considering it’s a full-blown production company vs PewDiePie and his one editor, it’s not exactly a fair fight.

The YouTuber sparked what has been an incredible resurgence of players going back to Minecraft after leading the way with his very own in-game series. 

His collection of videos have continually gone viral, whether it be building up an army of pigs, snowmen, or even tackling the Ender Dragon in an epic encounter, he’s created must-see content on a consistent basis and is reaping the rewards.

Fans of the Swede will be wondering whether or not he will continue the Minecraft journey when he returns to creating YouTube videos, following the honeymoon, but he seems to be doing just fine even when he’s not uploading.
