YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s race against Bollywood label T-Series continues to heighten, despite his brief loss - but the Swede isn’t giving up hope just yet.

PewDiePie made an announcement during an episode of ‘LWIAY’ on March 8, where he revealed that he hopes to reach a major subscriber milestone before his fight with T-Series comes to an end.

While both channels reached a whopping 88 million subscribers in late February, PewDiePie hopes to reach 100 million subs ahead of T-Series’ projected victory.

“Keep subscribing, god dammit!” PewDiePie jokingly urged his viewers. “...we gotta make it to 100 [million]. We’re gonna make it to 100 mill, and we’re gonna dab on them, and that’s how we’ll know that we’re winning.”

Although T-Series was projected to surpass Pewds in early 2019, the Swede continues to outpace his Bollywood nemesis, thanks to the efforts of his dedicated fanbase and other popular YouTubers.

The label even overtook PewDiePie for a grueling ten minutes on February 22, thanks to an automated audit by YouTube that purged over 20,000 inactive subscribers.

Despite this brief defeat, PewDiePie managed to bounce back in a big way, prompting T-Series’ CEO to speak out on their fight with a message urging Indian subscribers to end the race for good.

PewDiePie hit back at the PSA in kind, calling T-Series “desperate” - and now, he has an even bigger goal in mind (which could very well come to pass, if previous trends continue to hold true for the YouTuber).
