PewDiePie rescues long-lost Minecraft pet

During his latest Minecraft episode, the YouTuber looked to rescue a character he had forgotten about over “100 days ago.” Pewds gathered his trusty sidekicks Sven the dog and Joergen the horse, and set out to find the creature.

“Today we’re gonna bring back what I started. I put a parrot, it was Jacksepticye parrot, underneath a thing under the jungle. And I forgot about him. So he’s been there for a couple hundred years,” he began.

After scouring the map, the 30-year-old finally found the jungle where he had trapped the green IKEA bird. “You must be starving! You must be so hungry! he said, feeding it watermelon seeds. “I can’t believe he was still there! I was not sure. I thought they would de-spawn or something!”

Fans of the series will remember back in ‘Part 21’ uploaded in July 2019, PewDiePie had tried to tame the Green IKEA bird – which he also said looked like his friend Jacksepticeye.

However after failing to make the animal his pet, he had given up and trapped the bird in an enclosure. “You’re gonna have to sit here a while until the comments tell me what to do,” he said.

Unfortunately, it took popular YouTuber approximately 277 days to return. However it’s understandable, given the incredible scale of his series.

Smash Ultimate fans were not happy with the Minecraft reveal, either.

Popular fighting game content creator Maximilian ‘Maximilian Dood’ Christiansen also shared his disappointment on YouTube. “I don’t f**king believe it. I’m going to turn this stream off right now. Going to turn this s**t off. I get it. An iconic character. I get it. I genuinely understand Sakurai, it doesn’t mean I have to like it. But I understand.”

Despite the negative reactions, not everyone was down on the Minecraft DLC. Team Liquid’s Samuel ‘Dabuz’ Buzby praised the announcement and said, “This wild ride is exactly what I paid for with Fighter’s Pass 2. Give me chaos, no boring expected reveals.” Legendary Smash pro Ezra ‘Samsora’ Morris also celebrated the reveal by changing his profile pic to the Minecraft fighter and tweeted, “I changed my mind” in response to a 2019 tweet he had made about the Mojang title.

Regardless of how you feel about the new DLC fighter, there is no denying that Minecraft has become one of the most iconic gaming franchises of all time. So much so that in 2014, Microsoft dropped over $2.4 billion to acquire it.
