With Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s recent surge in numbers on YouTube due his Minecraft series, fellow star Ethan ‘h3h3‘ Klein explained just how crazy his growing statistics actually are.

During the ‘h3 podcast’ on Aug 2, Ethan and Hila Klein turned the discussion to YouTube and Twitch numbers, and the ups and downs of a content creator’s views and subscribers.

However, the host was shocked when he took a deeper, more specific look into PewDiePie’s numbers, and explained why they are actually extremely impressive.

PewDiePie’s numbers rose due to Minecraft

When checking the analytics for PewDiePie’s channel, h3h3 screamed: “What!?, 544 million!” after seeing the statistics for his total views in the last 30 days.

The Swede saw a substantial increase in subscribers in the last two months due to his massively popular Minecraft videos. “This is his biggest month ever”, the podcaster exclaimed.

He then joked about the YouTube king’s statistics for July: “Last month he was slow, he only got 650,000 subs, this month he’s on track, he’s got 1.5 million.”

YouTube: H3 PodcastEthan was in total shock at PewDiePie’s crazy YouTube numbers.

As he took a look at Pewds’ peak subscriber count from previous months, h3h3 said that he at one point was getting seven million a month and that it was almost two million a week in viewers subscribing to his channel.

While the Swedish YouTuber’s sub count per month is not as high as its peak, his sub numbers are still insane. On him hitting 100 million subscribers, Klein made the observation that “it’s going super fast, yet it feels so slow” as fans are on edge anticipating him finally hitting the milestone.

H3h3 says PewDiePie deserves the success

Not just getting lost in the numbers, co-host Hila Klein was quick to point out “he clearly deserves it”. Ethan Klein agreed and said, “He grinds sooo hard. He’s been doing it for so long, how is [he] not burned out.”

The podcast duo then compared his work ethic to being a “YouTube super power”, clearly taken back by how crazy the numbers are that the YouTube king brings in.

As PewDiePie swiftly approaches his 100 million subscriber milestone, he continues to entertain millions with his popular Minecraft series.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
