PewDiePie first partnered up with G FUEL at the beginning of 2019 as the Swede got his own shaker cup for the energy formula which proved extremely popular, leaving many to wonder when he would get his own actual drink.

But after much anticipation, the YouTube star finally revealed his own flavor, and it’s a clever tribute to his home continent Europe. The collaboration also had some extra goodies such as a collector’s edition, which will no doubt excite fans.

On October 16, it was revealed that the YouTuber’s newest GFUEL flavor is a “wild lingonberry-infused tonic” that originates from Scandinavia.

“We present to you, a taste-bud tingling, WILD LINGONBERRY-infused tonic of Scandinavian origin! A delicious tribute to our most treasured friend!! PEWDIEPIE!” the official G FUEL Twitter account posted.

The announcement on Twitter also included a video, which revealed a collector’s box which, according to the official G FUEL site, includes a ‘Pewdiepie’ flavor G FUEL Tub, the ‘RÅRÖDA LINGON’ shaker cup, and a special edition GFUEL2GO scooper.

The shaker and box both sport the Swede’s signature logo and pattern, and the back even has a stylized picture of the YouTube star. The limited edition item is being sold for $39.99.

An epic collaboration

The collaboration between PewDiePie and G FUEL has been a natural one, as the YouTube king has used his edgy comedy and focus on memes to advertise the product and make it a part of his brand.

A great of example of this is when Pewds trolled his entire audience on October 9 by announcing that his new G FUEL flavor was “swedish meatballs” on Twitter, including a video of him gagging on it. The energy formula got in on the fun, stating IKEA was going to be angry.

With over 101 million subscribers strong, PewDiePie has one of the largest audiences in the world.

Despite that, the Swede is pretty selective with advertising – a great match made as the energy formula embraces his comedic style.

Dellor shocked as Twitch finally unbans him after over a year

After just over one year following his permanent ban from Twitch, dellor’s channel has been reinstated on the platform. The former Overwatch pro now says it’s his “second chance.”

Matt ‘dellor’ Vaughn has had a turbulent streaming career – he was dropped from his Overwatch team, Toronto Esports, after a racist outburst, effectively ending his career as a pro player.

Then, in 2019, he was banned from Twitch after telling his female teammate in Apex Legends to “cook a sandwich.” This ban originally earned him an indefinite suspension, before it was reduced to 30 days.

Upon his return however, his partnership had been revoked, leaving him without a sub button, seriously impacting his income. Then, in October 2019, dellor was “banned indefinitely for “self-harm” for breaking a keyboard on stream.”

This ban prompted the hashtag #freedellor on Twitter, as fans thought the permanent ban was harsh. But, Twitch kept firm, and dellor eventually moved to streaming on YouTube instead.

He pleaded with Twitch to allow him back onto the platform on a handful of occasions. Finally, on October 6, seemingly out of the blue, dellor’s channel was reinstated, and his ban lifted.

“I had given up all hope,” dellor said on Twitter. “After everything I have said about them, Twitch actually unbanned me.”

His channel, complete with over 550,000 followers (and likely more as Twitch rebuilds the follow count after a suspension), is fully intact.

This doesn’t mean though that he will necessarily return to streaming on Twitch though. Being unbanned on the platform at least means he is able to play with friends who are streaming on Twitch themselves.

He is still not partnered on the platform and does not have a subscribe button. He will still be able to earn money through donations, but to access subscriptions or bits will need to become a Twitch affiliate.

However, if he wants to become a partner again, it would mean stopping his YouTube streams altogether, where he has now built up a following since his time away from Twitch.
