Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, also known by his online name PewDiePie, often shortened to PewDie or Pewds, is a video game commentator, comedian, vlogger, and entertainer and is the most subscribed and viewed channel on YouTube. He is known for playing many horror and indie games, often boosting sales of said games. PewDiePie refers to his fanbase as the "Bro Army" and individual fans as "bros". Felix often raises awareness for various charities. He lives in England with his girlfriend, Italian YouTuber CutiePieMarzia (Marzia Bisognin) and his two pugs, Edgar and Maya.
To the chagrin of his parents, Felix left college to focus on YouTube. Without their support, he worked a hot dog stand as a side job. Felix's original account was named "Pewdie", but forgot the channel's password, so he created a new one, adding "Pie" on the end. Within two years of starting his new YouTube channel, Felix achieved one million subscribers. In December of 2012, Felix signed under Maker Studios.
By July 2013, Felix became the second-most subscribed channel on YouTube (with 10 million subscribers), passing Jenna Marbles and one spot under Smosh. That August, he passed Smosh. By the end of 2013, Felix's channel went from 3.5 million to just under 19 million subscribers. According to MatPat, this was because of his already-big fanbase in Europe, making it easy to skyrocket though up to the top. That year, Maker Studios cretaed a PewDiePie app. He also temporarily disabled comments, as most were spam and self-advertisements.
In 2015, Felix announced a new show called Scare PewDiePie, a new show on YouTube Red in which he would go through experiences based on various horror games he played, somewhat similar to MatPat's Game Lab. A second season was confirmed in June 2016.
Felix currently has over 51 million subscribers and 13 billion views, and is currently the only YouTuber to have a ruby play button.
