In the midst of Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg taking his 2020 break from YouTube, the Swede’s subreddit has hilariously descended into chaos. From cooking to gardening memes, the community is a little bit lost without their king.

In December 2019, the popular YouTuber announced he would be taking a short break from creating content in 2020, stating he was “tired.” While the Swedish personality is recouping, his forum over on Reddit has found interesting ways to pass the time.

PewDiePie’s signature show Last Week I Asked You had him reacting to memes posted on his subreddit. But now r/PewdiepieSubmissions has been overtaken by bizarre-themed memes as they use humor to soften the blow of their favorite creator’s absence.

PewDiePie’s subreddit goes awry

Feeling the withdrawal of the absence of Pewds’ YouTube content, his subreddit has found hilarious ways to pass the time. While the forum has usually been a place for his fans to post the top memes for him to react to, now it’s become a tug of war between varied themes.

The Reddit community first began posting about cooking – because why not? A flood of submissions began revolving around the culinary arts, which user ‘Potatochu_OwO’ captured with a Danny Devito meme.

A Reddit user joked about the subreddit becoming dedicated to cooking memes.

The Swede’s fans responded to the post, and exclaimed that his break has felt much longer than it’s actually been. User ‘VirtualNK’ stated in shock, “It’s only been 14 days? Felt like 2 months,” to which ‘Gnostic28’ replied, “How much longer must we wait?”

Other users posted actual pictures of food they had created such as ‘Peto6421’s stellar brofist cake.

Some fans even uploaded food that they had actually cooked.

The mods seem on board with the movement, even declaring on January 31, “With 2.5 MILLION subscribers, r/Pewdiepiesubmissions is the LARGEST cooking subreddit! Congratulations! (next week we’re turning into a gardening subreddit, stay tuned).”

The subreddit’s mods are on board with the weekly themes.

Like the tides of the ocean, soon the forum washed away their love for cooking, and have set their sights on their next obsession – gardening. Sticking to the newly ordained theme, ‘ChisTurtle’ posted a hilarious photoshop of Felix riding a John Deer tractor.

PewdiepieSubmissions ushered in their new obsession with gardening.

One of the posts was even directed at the YouTuber, and admitted that he must be confused when reading their garden style posts. “Felix is probably checking the subreddit [right now] and he is confused,” it read.

PewDiePie is probably really confused by what is going on.

The Swedish YouTube star amassed over 103 million followers on the platform, making him the largest individual content creator.

Only time will tell when PewDiePie will be making his glorious return. However, his short absence is clearly missed if fan reaction on his subreddit is any indication.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was jokingly trolled by fans after they made memes about an embarrassing story he revealed in an interview from years ago.

PewDiePie may be known today as the most popular YouTuber in the world with over 107 million subscribers to his channel. However, in 2010, he was virtually unknown as he was learning to make content while in Sweden.

During his latest upload, a story from Kjellberg’s past came back to haunt him. The star reacted to fans creating memes about an embarrassing shower incident that he revealed in a video he posted a couple years back.

During the November 23 episode of Last Week I Asked You, the Swede reacted to fans making memes about a story he had revealed in 2017. “If you are confused by this, don’t ask. Because I’m not saying it again,” the 31-year-old laughed.

When more viewers continued to make jokes about the embarrassing incident, the star exclaimed, “Why did I share this story?! Stop it! I had no choice. I do not control my anus!”

For those baffled by what he is talking about, fans are referencing a story the YouTuber explained in a previous upload from three years ago. When Kjellberg was younger, he got violently sick, and had to go to the bathroom in a shower at a harbor in Sweden.

The embarrassing incident was revealed by the content creator in an in-depth interview he did with his friend in 2017. In the one-hour video, Pewds went over his entire life story and included his triumphs and failures – including the infamous shower story.

“I had eaten something weird that night. I felt it a few hours later [after eating] at the party. And I’m like I need to s**t right now, or else I’m going to s**t myself in front of everybody. So I ran. It was that state of emergency!” he said.

Unfortunately when he reached the public bathroom, there was a massive line of people out the door. “So I told them, “Guys, this is an emergency I need to go!” … But no one would listen to me. So I ran in [to the restroom] anyways and I found a toilet. But it was a shower. So I took a s**t in the shower.”

Hilariously, the entertainer when on to explain that he eventually got a job at the same harbor, and the bathroom incident had became a legend with employees. “I got a job at that very harbor, and they would always tell the story about the man that took a s**t in the shower,” he laughed.

Despite the story being known for a few years now, fans of the content creator have recently been digging it up to make memes. If nothing else, the hilarious tale is a good example of “if you have to go, you have to go.” Kjellberg’s fans, of course, are only teasing him out of love.
