YouTuber Justin Roberts, of ‘Six Figures I was Only Four’ fame, has challenged popular YouTuber MrBeast to see who can make the craziest video advocating for YouTube king ‘PewDiePie.’

Roberts uploaded a video on November 30, revealing that he had bought a billboard in Times Square allegedly worth one million dollars to advertise PewDiePie’s channel in light of his ongoing battle with Bollywood label T-Series.

Roberts then tagged YouTuber MrBeast in a Twitter reply, challenging him to top his video.

“I challenge you to top this, MrBeast,” Roberts wrote. “KEEP PEWDIEPIE NUMBER #1!”

MrBeast made major waves across the internet after creating a city wide advertisement campaign to help PewDiePie in the fight against T-Series in late October, buying out every billboard in his city to aid the cause.


MrBeast’s campaign incited a massive surge of subscribers toward PewDiePie, with the YouTube king gaining a whopping 30,000 subs in the hour after the video was posted.

MrBeast returned to fight the Bollywood menace a second time, where he recorded himself saying “PewDiePie” 100,000 times in an 11-hour-long video. 

While this second campaign likewise saw a surge of subs for PewDiePie, T-Series has since covered major ground, and are now only 80,000 subs away from overtaking YouTube’s biggest independent creator.

YouTubers across the space are scrambling to support the Swede in any way they can, with some even paying celebrities to endorse his channel. 


However, Roberts has made the ultimate challenge to Pewd’s biggest supporter – who has teased that he might even buy a Super Bowl ad in an effort to squash T-Series once and for all.
