Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, who is famously known by his online pseudonym PewDiePie, is a Swedish YouTuber. He’s also the most subscribed to channel on YouTube.
He was originally focused on pursuing a degree in Industrial Economics and Technology Management at Chalmers University of Technology.
However, he was unable to split his time between his academic requirements and his YouTube channel, so he chose to drop out of school.
His YouTube channel, PewDiePie, features his videos that show him playing various video games.
Each video shows him playing the game, and commentating on what he sees and experiences, while also showing his reactions to what he is seeing on the screen.
PewDiePie often refers to his fans as the ‘Bro Army’, made up of his ‘Bros’, and he typically performs a ‘Brofist’ at the end of each of his videos.
Subscriptions to his YouTube channel have grown astronomically since he launched the channel in 2009.
