PewDiePie uploaded a video on March 9 reacting to Indian citizens’ take on his war against T-Series, courtesy of popular YouTube channel Asian Boss.
In the video, multiple citizens across the young adult age group were asked about their stance on the issue, with some advocating for PewDiePie while others defended T-Series.
One woman took issue with PewDiePie’s ‘Bitch Lasagna’ song, appearing to take humored offense to the insult.
“I called T-Series bitch lasagna!” PewDiePie laughingly clarified. “That’s not even an insult! I’m sorry, come back to me, I’m sorry for calling you a bitch lasagna!”
A young boy participating in the video even explained that T-Series’ sudden boom was a result of India going online due to cheap Wi-Fi prices, thanks to mobile network provider Jio - which PewDiePie was ultimately happy about.
“So basically, India is getting internet,” PewDiePie said of the development. “Which is a good thing. I wouldn’t joke like, ‘Ugh, that’s so bad!’”
PewDiePie had a surprising amount of supporters throughout the video, with more than a few citizens advocating for his win over the label - although others were passionately standing behind T-Series and its massive archive of Hindi music.
The war between the two channels is still going strong, thanks to PewDiePie’s faithful fanbase and Jio’s mission to take India online.
While T-Series is ultimately projected to surpass the YouTuber, the sub gap continues to fluctuate - but for how long, fans have yet to find out.
