YouTuber jacksfilms tries to rescue PewDiePie with ideas to stop T-Series

In another attempt to save Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s rank as the most subscribed channel on YouTube, jacksfilms asked his fans to help him out with ideas.

Jacksfilms is a famous YouTuber with over 4.5 million subscribers and is best known for parodies and his YIAY series, which stands for “Yesterday I asked you”. In a nod to PewDiePie’s “Last week I asked you” (LWIAY) series, he combined the titles together in his latest Youtube video spelling out LWIAYIAY.

The question asked for this video was “how do we help PewDiePie stay #1 most subscribed?” The video included jacksfilms briefly reviewing ideas from his fans in a comedic manner that could help PewDiePie retain that top spot as the most subscribed channel on YouTube against a quickly rising T-Series.

PewDiePie / YouTubePewDiePie is on the edge of losing the number one spot on YouTube.

Some of the commenters took the opportunity to genuinely suggest ideas for the biggest YouTuber, such as recommending games and video ideas for Felix to take on board with examples such as bringing back his Happy Wheels series or reacting to funny Fortnite compilations.

As the gap is closing and less than two thousand subscribers separate the top two channelse, most of jacksfilms’ following believe that it was over for PewDiePie and that his reign as YouTube’s most subscribed creator had finally come to end, saying “It’s over jack just go home” and “It’s the end. There is no rescue.”

Other users, however, had more unusual ideas for PewDiePie to take on board, with ideas such as ‘asking YouTube nicely’ for help and in an extreme case one such viewer left a comment on YouTube saying that “Elon Musk buys YouTube, and deletes T-Series.”

We have seen the Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, openly show support to PewDiePie before in the battle with T-Series when he finally hosted his meme review series after teasing it for weeks but this request here might be asking too much of Elon.

Jacksfilms finally agreed with the concluding comment of the video which said that “we all just have to subscribe! It’s easy” but in the race for the top spot, many fans feel like PewDiePie will need to continue to do big things to stay on top.

TikTok’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio, has invested in her very first startup, and it’s a $50 million mobile banking service specifically aimed at teenagers.

In true D’Amelio fashion, Charli has decided to invest in her first company, Step, along with a slew of other celebrity investors.

What is Step?

Step is a mobile banking service directed toward teenagers aged 13-19, which announced this morning that it has raised over $50 million during its Series B funding stage.

Step has grown to over 500,000 users in two months after its official launch, and features a variety of elements seen in apps like Venmo and PayPal, allowing users to send money to friends via peer-to-peer technology.

The service also offers its teen customer-base FDIC-insured bank accounts without any fees, easing their foray into the financial world. Step even gives users a Visa card that allows them to establish credit prior to turning 18.

As for Charli D’Amelio, she seems to be quite jazzed about the bank’s entire concept, having risen to prominence in the mobile world before turning 16 this year.

“As a Step partner and customer, I’ve been able to see firsthand how easy Step makes it to manage your money while providing the educational resources that today’s teens need but have largely been unable to find—myself included,” D’Amelio stated.

“I’m excited to be able to use my platform to help close this gap and have made a direct investment in Step to help them develop even more useful products.”

Charli isn’t the only big name putting some stock into Step; A-list celebs like Will Smith, the Chainsmokers, and Justin Timberlake are also investing in the bank, making for a truly star-studded affair for the emerging company.

Step is planning to partner with even more celebrities and influencers in the future, and hopes to help its teenaged customer-base with everything from student loans to building credit in the long-term.

Step aims to help teenagers ease into the confusing financial world.

“Student loans are a big thing. Being able to extend credit to these folks. Being able to offer new products and services so they’re not paying these outrageous, predatory banking fees and high interest credit cards,” Step CEO MacDonald said of the service.

It looks like Charli is making big waves with this major investment, and all eyes are peeled to see if her 101 million TikTok followers will hop onto the Step trend, too.
