Who has the most watched channel on YouTube? Psy? Lady Gaga? Justin Bieber? No. PewDiePie has more subscribers than all of those artists…combined.
His name IRL (in real life) is Felix Kjelberg. PewDiePie is not only the most watched gamer online, he has the biggest and fastest growing channel on YouTube1. Originally from Sweden, PewDiePie commands a global audience based primarily in the United States; a loyal and passionate fan base composed of both gamers and non-gamers alike, affectionately dubbed "the Bro Army." PewDiePie is known for the shrieks of fear and joy that characterize his imaginative gameplay, normally of horror games. PewDiePie often refers to his fans as his "Bros" and he typically performs a "Brofist" at the end of each of his videos.
