Swedish YouTuber Felix Kjellberg, known online as PewDiePie, has uploaded over 4,000 videos on the platform.[a][1] Having accumulated over 23 billion video views,[b] PewDiePie's channel ranked as the 11th-most viewed on YouTube. Due to PewDiePie's YouTube channel being the second most-subscribed on the platform, his channel's videos attracted substantial media coverage. According to Social Blade–a website which tracks YouTube channel statistics–on 29 December 2014, the PewDiePie channel surpassed emimusic's video view count, at over 7.2 billion views, to become the most-viewed channel on the website.[2][3] PewDiePie's channel held the distinction of being the most-viewed on the platform until 14 February 2017, when it was surpassed by T-Series, according to Social Blade.[4][5]

The oldest PewDiePie video available for public viewing on YouTube is "Minecraft Multiplayer Fun", published on 2 October 2010.[6] As of January 2020, the video has accumulated over 13 million video views.[7] The most-viewed video uploaded by PewDiePie was the music video "bitch lasagna", published on 5 October 2018.[8] As of January 2020, the video has accumulated over 235 million video views.[9]

Statistical history[edit]

In March 2012, Swedish newspaper Expressen reported that PewDiePie had uploaded at least one video per day for the seven months preceding their report. Additionally, the publication noted that PewDiePie's channel accumulated 71 million total video views to that point, and 25 million video views in February 2012 alone.[10]

In June 2013, Tubefilter began a monthly listing of the most viewed YouTube channels. In 2013, PewDiePie was consistently toward the top of this listing, ranking #1 in June, July, August, October, and December of that year.[11] Analyzing Tubefilter's data, The Guardian reported that PewDiePie's channel earned 1.3 billion video views in the second half of 2013.[12] In 2014, PewDiePie's YouTube channel was the most-viewed in January, and then for seven consecutive months from March to September.[13] According to Tubefilter and The Guardian, PewDiePie's channel amassed just under 4.1 billion video views in 2014, making it the most viewed channel during that year.[14][15] That figure was a reported 81% increase from PewDiePie's video views in 2013; PewDiePie's channel was the most viewed in that year, as well.[14]

In August 2014, Tubefilter reported that PewDiePie's channel surpassed the RihannaVEVO channel on 19 July as the most-viewed on YouTube at around 5.2 billion video views.[16] Data from Social Blade, however, shows that PewDiePie's channel still had less video views than the emimusic channel.[17] According to Social Blade's data, the PewDiePie channel surpassed emimusic on 29 December 2014, at over 7.2 billion views, to become the most-viewed channel on the website.[2][3]

By 2015, his videos averaged over 300 million views per month.[18] PewDiePie's channel eclipsed the 10 billion video view milestone on 6 September 2015, becoming the first channel to do so in the process.[19][20][21] At that time, "A Funny Montage" (then-titled "Funny Montage #1") was PewDiePie's most-viewed video, with approximately 68.8 million views; a partial reason it accumulated many views was due to its status as PewDiePie's channel trailer.[19]

In July 2019, in large part due to Kjellberg's Minecraft gameplay videos, the PewDiePie channel received over 570 million video views; The Verge noted it was Kjellberg's most successful month in years–in terms of video views.[22] Data from Social Blade[c] shows a 573 million video view figure–the most views the PewDiePie channel had ever received in a single month; the amount surpassed the previous high of 500.39 million video views, recorded in December 2018.[23]

Videos[edit]

PewDiePie's oldest video available for viewing is titled "Minecraft Multiplayer Fun".[24] Uploaded on 2 October 2010, the video is noted for containing mainly Swedish commentary from PewDiePie, rather than the English language he would later employ in his videos.[24] The video has amassed over 13 million video views as of January 2020.[7] On his early Let's Play videos, PewDiePie has stated "I was so shy back then," and added "It was so weird to me, sitting alone in a room talking into a microphone. That was unheard of back at the time. No one really did it."[25] Many of PewDiePie's early videos were Let's Plays centered on horror video games; Amnesia: The Dark Descent was one of the most noted games he played.[24] However, by 2014, PewDiePie began to feature less of these videos on his channel; Kotaku wrote: "Instead of limiting himself to horror games, Pewdiepie is now actively playing more things that interest him."[24] Happy Wheels was another oft-cited video game that helped propel PewDiePie's channel on YouTube.[24] Fridays with PewDiePie is another notable set of videos uploaded by PewDiePie; the series is formatted as a vlog and often features PewDiePie completing viewer requests.[25]

Many of PewDiePie's most-viewed videos are highlight compilations of his Let's Play videos.[26][27] One of these compilations, "A Funny Montage", was uploaded in June 2013 and spent a considerable amount of time as PewDiePie's most-viewed, with publications citing it as such through 2018.[28][29]

PewDiePie had two of the ten most-viewed gaming videos in 2013: the sixth-part of his Mad Father Let's Play was the third-most viewed of the year, earning 27 million views.[30][d] An entry in his Funny Gaming Montage series ranked as the eight-most viewed gaming video of 2013.[30]

During late 2016 and early 2017, PewDiePie uploaded a string of videos in response to YouTube changing their algorithms to focus more on a video's watch time statistics.[32] The first of these videos asked viewers to help the video reach 1 million likes, which it promptly did.[32] PewDiePie followed that video with one asking his viewers to have the video reach 1 million dislikes.[32][33] With over 3.8 million dislikes (as of 4 January 2019), the video ranks as PewDiePie's most-disliked, as well as the fourth-most disliked on the entire YouTube platform.[34] Another video featuring PewDiePie asking his viewers to have it reach 1 million comments also garnered traction; at one point, the video was noted for having over 5 million comments.[35] However, many of the comments have since been removed, and as of 16 January 2019, the video now has approximately 1.5 million comments.[36]

On 27 December 2018, PewDiePie uploaded "YouTube Rewind 2018 but it's actually good", in response to YouTube Rewind 2018: Everyone Controls Rewind, which was originally uploaded by YouTube's Spotlight channel.[37] Everyone Controls Rewind was heavily criticized by viewers and content creators alike, and became the most-disliked video in YouTube's history.[33][37]

Music videos[edit]

October 5, 2018, PewDiePie released "bitch lasagna", a diss track-styled music video aimed at T-Series.[38] The track, made in collaboration with producer Party in Backyard, was uploaded in the midst of media outlets projecting T-Series to surpass PewDiePie in terms of subscribers.[38][39] The video went on to replace "A Funny Montage" as PewDiePie's most-viewed video, with over 235 million views.[8]

On March 31, 2019, PewDiePie released "Congratulations", an upbeat synth pop/hip hop music video and song featuring RoomieOfficial and Boyinaband, to concede defeat to and sarcastically congratulate Indian music video channel T-Series surpassing him in subscribers. In the music video, PewDiePie criticizes T-Series for alleged tax evasion and for achieving their early success by selling pirated songs. He also mocks how T-Series sent him a cease and desist letter alleging that his actions and lyrics of "Bitch Lasagna" were defamatory. The video also thanks his fans for sticking with him through his YouTube career, referencing past notable videos.[40][41][42][43]

The day after the song was uploaded to YouTube, PewDiePie regained his lead against T-Series, to which he tweeted "big lol" on Twitter, posting a screenshot of the subscribers count.[44] Eight days after the release of "Congratulations," both music videos were banned in India when the Delhi High Court granted an injunction in favor of T-Series.[45][46][47]

On October 23, 2019, following PewDiePie's surpassing 100 million subscribers and a few months of Minecraft gameplay videos, PewDiePie released "Mine All Day (Minecraft music video)". The song features two parts, separated by a beat switch: The first, flaunting his in-game accomplishments; the second, flaunting his real-world accomplishments.[22][48]
