YouTube – you don’t become the most subscribed YouTuber for nothing – and now, he has elevated his Minecraft series even further with a music video that has gone instantly viral.

Minecraft saw somewhat of a revival in recent months, especially with popular streamers and content creators looking for an alternative to Fortnite during the latter seasons of Chapter 1.

PewDiePie, being the character that he is, capitalized greatly on the regenerated popularity of the sandbox video game, garnering millions of views on every video released of him playing.

PewDiePie/YouTubePewDiePie has amassed 101 million subscribers, creating primarily gaming content.

Unfortunately, for fans of his Minecraft series, he brought it to an end, after defeating a major boss.

    In the video, he is characterized in Minecraft’s signature blocky style while rapping, flexing about his multiple in-game possessions, with lines such as “Bet you don’t have this blue, bet you don’t have this green,” referencing his diamond and emerald ores, two of the rarest in the game.

    In the second half of the video, it reverts to PewDiePie in real-life, where he starts discussing his real-world possessions with a change in flow and beat with lines like “I’m bored of being at the peak, so time to see what lies beneath.”

    The video was uploaded on October 23 and, at the time of publication on October 24, it has received almost 7 million views – a number many YouTubers wouldn’t reach in a lifetime – and was in YouTube’s top trending videos.

    Finishing the song with the line “Remember kids, life isn’t fair. Take it from the second Swedish Minecraft multi-millionaire,” PewDiePie reminds viewers that he is ultra-successful, while also paying homage to Minecraft developer and fellow Swede Markus Perrson.

    Mine All Day isn’t PewDiePie’s first music video: he also saw a lot of success with works such as ‘B***h Lasagna’ and ‘Congratulations’, which have picked up over 370 million views between them.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
