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.

Streamer goes viral for calling out “disrespectful” Among Us players

YouTuber and Twitch streamer Julien ‘julien’ Solomita has gone viral for a clip in which he called out Among Us players who are disrespectful towards others in-game.

In the viral clip, which has been viewed over 350,000 times since being uploaded to Twitter on December 4, Julien blasted people who infect his lobbies with negativity or make others feel “unsafe.”

“When I make these lobbies, when I go around and hit up some of my friends, and often times some of my friends’ friends to play Among Us with me, I have one thing in mind: that everyone I’m inviting gets to have fun,” the streamer began his rant.

“Gets to feel welcome. Gets to feel safe. Gets the exact opportunity as everyone else to be listened to. And gets to go home at the end of the night and say that had a good night of gaming,” he continued.

Among Us has become one of the most popular online games.

According to Julien, this mantra should be enforced for new people. “I’ve met more people in the streaming world playing Among Us than I’ve ever met, by far, than any other game,” he explained. “So, when new people are in my lobbies, I try to go extra to out of my way to make those people feel like they’re welcome and they get to have fun.”

Communication can be key in Among Us, so it makes sense that anyone who plays would want to be able to speak freely and not be spoken over. As such, when players aren’t able to get a word in, the experience can be ruined.

This is why the streamer has “zero tolerance” for the “normalization” of disrespecting people in video games.

“Among Us is a game and it’s for fun. It’s not so boys can talk over women. It’s not to make new people in the group feel small or unwelcome. It’s not to win in every game at all costs,” he continued to rant. “It’s a game and it’s for everybody to enjoy.”

He went on to reach out to players who may have been disrespected in online games and hoped that they never experienced that again. “I don’t want anyone here to get the idea that it’s even close to normal for that to be how you feel when you play a video game. That’s not normal. It’s f**king weird, it’s wrong.”

A lot of people have taken Solomita’s message to heart and voiced their agreement in the replies. Hopefully, his words have a lasting effect on players feeling a bit out of touch in online games such as Among Us.
