YouTube Rewind has, traditionally, been a time for some of the biggest creators on the platform to get together and create a video that showcases that last year of their content and some viral hits.
In recent years, YouTube has come under fire for their annual upload – with the 2018 installment quickly becoming the most disliked video ever, and the recent 2019 video being criticized for taking a step outside the box and becoming a huge listicle. So, PewDiePie stepped up to the plate with his own, hilarious take on things – complete with classic memes and YouTube roasts.
Though, in one segment, popular streamer xQc made an appearance where he labeled Thanos from Marvel’s Avengers as a "cheater,” when a video of the Avengers x Fortnite crossover was revealed.
With the former Overwatch League professional being live on Twitch when the video was released, it didn’t take long for his fans to make him aware of his inclusion, leading him to react to it on stream.
“What?” xQc called out upon seeing himself and breaking into laughter. “You were right. Guys, we made it dude! We cheated, he cheated. That’s crazy, dude.”
After finishing up with the comedic video, the streamer wanted to give his thanks to his namesake for including him – so he left a little comment.
“Chat, we can comment something nice. I was here PogU. Nice video Felix. PS, please don’t copy strike me,” he said, joking about the beef between PewDiePie and Alinity after the YouTuber called out Twitch streamers in 2018.
Even though he may not have expected to find himself as a part of the video, it’s probably something that xQc will take either way as it promotes him to a huge audience.
It might not score him a collaboration with the YouTube king anytime soon, but at least Felix’s are looking out for each other.
