It appears that Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg‘s YouTube channel will see an end of an era as the YouTuber will no longer be doing his popular Dr. Phil reaction videos.

Over the past year or so, PewDiePie has been regularly uploading reaction videos to Dr. Phillip McGraw’s popular television show, in which the famed psychologist applies his expertise to help his guests with their issues.

Many of those who go on Dr. Phil are interesting people, to say the least, and Pewds has taken full advantage of the show’s more ridiculous episodes to make hilarious content for his channel. 

Unfortunately, on March 11, the Swede announced via a new video that he will no longer be doing reaction videos of the show because all of the previous videos featuring Dr. Phil have been copyright struck.

“All my copyright videos got claimed by SonyTV,” he said. “All of them. They struck out of nowhere. I wasn’t even prepared.”

In classic PewDiePie style, the King of YouTube’s newest video is as melodramatic and exaggerated as it gets, featuring pained facial expressions, black-and-white visual effects, and dramatic music.

He even included a hilarious photoshopped image of Dr. Phil wearing a “Subscribe to PewDiePie” t-shirt, while jokingly commenting that his videos were helping give “traction” to the psychologist’s show.

“You know, Dr. Phil wore my t-shirt, so I thought he was a pro.” he said. “I thought he would appreciate my videos and understand that it gave traction to his show. This of course means no more Dr. Phil videos! I know I’m crying too, and I have been crying.”

While Pewds is probably not going to worry too much about the financial loss he took from having all of his Dr. Phil videos copyright struck, he does now has one less option in his toolbox of content for future videos.

This all took place, of course, during his heated YouTube race against Bollywood label T-Series, who are getting closer and closer to overtaking him as the most subscribed-to channel.

As things stand, the Swede’s lead over T-Series is at just around 21,400, and he looks set to become the first YouTuber ever to reach the 89 million subscriber mark.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
