YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to fans making fun of his latest haircut, with one even going so far as to compare his new ‘do to that of a baby’s.

PewDiePie is the top content creator on YouTube with millions of viewers around the world. The Swede’s meme-influenced humor has become a staple of his channel.

However during his March 7 episode of Last Week I Asked You, he reacted to fans jokes about him shaving his head. The entertainer’s community had some perfect roasts.

The YouTuber opened up his latest episode of LWIAY by preparing for the onslaught of submissions being focused on his haircut. “Hair short! Ah, let’s hear it. Can’t wait to read all the comments. ‘He looks like the same haircut I had when I was a baby.’ That’s so funny. You guys are clever!” he began.

He then read a post on the r/PewdiepieSubmissions forum that showed a photo of his buzzcut hair with the caption “When your mom chooses your haircut.” Pewds then explained “The irony here is that my mom NEVER let me cut my hair short.”

Admitting that he looks much better with longer locks, he continued “She wanted me to have it long. Which is good on my mom, because I look way better with long hair. I just never had it short, so I just wanted to see how it looks like.”

The Swedish YouTuber reacted to memes about his new haircut.

Seeing a silver lining to the hair experiment, the Swedish star pointed out that he had a very strong hairline. “Surprisingly, hairline is fine. I didn’t know this! Even better, my forehead is huge. Which basically means my brain is large!” he said.

The YouTuber broke down laughing when one of his fans compared him to Eleven from the Netflix hit series Stranger Things. “Remember that kid from Stranger Things. This is him now, do you feel old yet?” he read aloud.

Another submission hilariously put a picture of him next to Sid from Pixar’s Toy Story, which caused the Swede to defend his decision. “That’s the thing, everyone had this haircut when they were a kid already. If I had it as a kid I wouldn’t have to do it now!”

The YouTuber joked that his hair will grow faster for each like on his video, showing his sense of humor about the whole thing. If nothing else, his new look inspired some glorious memes – how could that not be seen as a win?

Regardless of the length of his locks, PewDiePie continues to crush it. Ever since returning from his month-long break in January, his uploads have been amassing millions of views.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
