Internet Life

YouTube

PewDiePie opened his YouTube account for PewDiePie on April 29th, 2010, with a Infiniminer playthrough video showing a player that was trapped in a shed by the other players. Months following from his Minecraft video, he started doing Call of Duty 3 commentaries, and Let's Plays on Alone in the Dark and Wolfenstein. PewDiePie then began uploading many Let's Plays and playthroughs on horror-themed videos, including Amnesia custom stories, and began playing flash games and other types of games, including Façade. On Fridays, PewDiePie would upload a video known as 'Fridays with PewDiePie', which would include vloging, doing Q&As, opening fanmail (known as 'bromail'). He also did an Omegle video, and most popular, his scary/funny moments montages. PewDiePie spawned his database known as the 'Bro Army', entitling users who subscribed to him known as Bro. As of March, 2013, PewDiePie has over 1,400,000,000 video views and 6,360,000 subscribers, or Bros'.

King of the Web

PewDie was nominated to run in the internet phenomena "King of the Web", coming first in the leaderboard as overall king. PewDie intended on using the money of $7,500 to donate to WWF to save the tigers. It was until "WhatDaFuq Show" had a meteoric up rise on the leaderboards, stirring up the bro army, causing controversy, claims of cheating, and verbal bashing on both sides. Though placing second on his first try, he is also the first campaigner in the history of the King of the Web to gain support and forwarded votes from so many campaigners within the top 10, including Syndicate, JPMetz and Scary Snowman. Nevertheless, he still placed first as the "King of Gaming".
Two weeks after the last nominations, PewDiePie was crowned King of the Web, getting a $500 voucher at Game Stop and receiving $7,500 in cash. PewDiePie showed his generosity through one of his "Fridays with PewDiePie" episodes and donated all of the money received into WWF to save the tigers.
