YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg was blown away after finding Minecraft Instagram filters, and had the most hilarious reaction when he discovered his own character in the photo app.

PewDiePie made his return to gaming in June 2019 with the launch of his Minecraft series, which became so popular it revitalized the almost 10-year-old sandbox game, even making it the second highest selling game in August.

During his October 30 upload, the Swede was messing around with Instagram filters, and was blown away when he found his own Minecraft character in the photo app.

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

The Swede was messing around with various Instagram filters when he found out that they had Minecraft ones in the app. “Oh my god!” he exclaimed after seeing himself as the sandbox protagonist Steve. He then realized that the filter even had the game’s iconic piano music playing in the background.

“Bruh!” he shouted, as he panned his camera around with the Nether in the background. “Whoa! I’m in the Nether! Ah!” he screamed, as he pointed his finger in the air striking a pose. “Jesus Christ make it stop!”

The YouTube star then swiped to the next filter, only to recognize his own Minecraft character was in the app. “Huh! What!?” he exclaimed upon seeing himself. “I’m PewDiePie! This is so cool!” The Swede then figured out how to change the background, and switched it to the default map.

“Sven! Sven! Where are you!?” he screamed out for his sidekick pup, a popular character in his Minecraft series. He then hilariously called out for his horse “Joergen!?”, before he asked “How do they do this? This is sick!”

PewDiePie continues to crush it, as he recently hit 102 million subscribers on October 28, making him the first individual content creator on the platform to reach those numbers. The Swede broke his 100 million subscriber milestone on August 24, and has continued to dominate in views.

While the Swede has moved away from doing daily Minecraft episodes and has gone back to doing a mix of reaction content alongside them, there is no doubt that his videos on the sandbox games have played a pivotal role in securing him as one of the biggest entertainers in the world.

New Twitch streamer NickCKelly got emotional on stream when he got his first viewers after waiting for nearly an hour, gaining thousands as followers as a result of his wholesome reaction.

2020 was a booming year for Twitch, with top creators like xQc and Valkyrae achieving huge numbers in terms of followers and views, and several gaming trends surging in popularity at various points in the year, meaning success all around.

With these huge creators out here smashing records, it’s easy to forget that many are only just starting out their venture into streaming, both casually and seriously.

This year has no doubt prompted more people than ever before to give streaming a try, but it’s not as easy as it might seem from the outside – especially if you’re starting from zero.

2020 helped Twitch do massive numbers all round.

NickCKelly was one such individual who wanted to give streaming a go, and he couldn’t have been more grateful when he eventually got his first viewers after a while on stream by himself.

He had been streaming for almost an hour when he noticed that some viewers had joined his previously empty chat, and he looked stunned.

“I have my first viewer, hi!” Nick said, looking taken aback by the sudden appearance. “Wow, this is amazing. I’m genuinely honored to have you in my stream, you’re my first viewer that I’ve had, I’ve been streaming for 48 minutes.”

“I feel like I’m gonna cry, man,” he said with the most wholesome reaction possible, tearing up as he spoke to his new viewers.

Over on Reddit, user Avoxio who found Nick’s stream explained why they entered his empty stream. “Me and some friends were scrolling through twitch and found this guy. His stream title got us intrigued so we decided to stop by.”

They also said “at first we thought he was trolling so we messed around a bit not thinking anything of it, throughout our conversation we realized that he was being genuine,” and said they decided to share his stream in hopes of getting him recognition.

Nick also responded in the comments: “I will not let you all down. I want to prove to people that there is goodness in the world, and that we are capable of so much more than most think. I think there‚Äôs so much pain and suffering in the world right now. Helping even a single person is making a difference in the world.”

The unexpected reaction from the small streamer certainly seemed to strike a chord with some viewers, and Nick has now shot up to 4.7 thousand followers at the time of writing.
