T-Series hit 125 million YouTube subs last month and nobody noticed

T-Series, the Bollywood production company that managed to beat Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg to 100 million subscribers has managed to break yet another remarkable milestone – racking up over 125 million subs – though, nobody really noticed.

The subscriber war between T-Series and PewDiePie dominated YouTube from August 2018, all the way through to May 2019 as the Bollywood production channel managed to eclipse 100 million subs, with the Swede deciding to call an end to the race.

Though it had been fierce – with Pewds getting the support of his ever-loyal community and celebrities like Tesla’s Elon Musk, as well as Rick and Morty’s Justin Roiland – T-Series was able to take a victory lap first. The Swede has since surpassed 100 million himself, but the lead grows further each day as the Indian channel is zeroing in on its next major milestone.

The war between PewDiePie and T-Series became must-see entertainment for fans of both channels.

While YouTube has gotten rid of its live subscriber tracker, websites like SocialBlade are still keeping up-to-date with the numbers when it becomes possible to view them.

Thanks to their most recent update, though, it has been revealed that T-Series surpassed the 125 million subscriber mark back in January and that they’ve been powering on ever since. Again, it’s the date on which they exactly managed to break that mark is unknown, but since January 30, they’ve reached 128 million subs. 

On an average monthly basis, the channel is picking up a cool 1,000,000 extra subscribers, while their total views continue to soar as well – with a daily average of 124,668,025 views.

T-Series growth has been absurd in recent months.

While the war with PewDiePie has been over for quite some time, the additional subscribers have allowed T-Series to fend off his growth despite the fact he is taking a break from YouTube.

The Swede has yet to reach 105 million subs on the platform, meaning that it would take a monumental effort to see him match T-Series. For the foreseeable future, though, they hold the bragging rights.

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
