After Beating PewDiePie, T-Series Just Made Yet Another YouTube Record

By Fatima A | 30 May, 2019

Indian YouTube channel, “T-Series” is on the roll with achieving the never been done before. After beating the unofficial “king” of YouTube, PewDiePie, who had the coveted top position for around 6 years, T-Series just managed to add another major accolade to their list of record-breaking feats. So let’s dive into what happened and how it happened, shall we?

 

It was just in August of 2018 that Felix Kjellberg aka PewDiePie became aware of the rapid popularity spurt of T-Series and started an online campaign to stop them from beating him

This propelled YouTube fans around the world into an epic battle and especially his own fans began campaigns to deter T-Series subscriber growth.

The campaign was met with support from YouTubers all over the world as they banded together to support PewDiePie against the massive corporate entity that is T-Series. The fight against creators vs corporation was definitely no joke.

 

Content creators urged their fans to “subscribe to PewDiePie” and some even went as far ahead to rent out whole billboards for this purpose

A few subscribers even went the extra mile by hacking printers and websites to abet them in their mission to help PewDiePie.

PewDiePie also started gaining momentum in Pakistan around February of this year after T-Series removed all songs by Pakistani singers on their channel

Naturally, this was met by outrage by Pakistanis who vowed to pledge their loyalty to the Pewd’s and unsubscribe from T-Series.

DRAMAAA.

Anyway, PewDiePie then tried to roast Indians, and T-Series, for this incident but it backfired on him

Obviously, Indians did not take this lightly since the segment seemed to poke fun at a serious situation and PewDiePie seemed to be commodifying the aftermath of a serious situation like a terrorist attack. Following the backlash, PewDiePie had to delete the whole roast or risk starting another jang.

On April 1st, PewDiePie finally conceded and released an entire song that basically congratulated T-Series for becoming the most subscribed to channel after they surpassed his followers.

 

Sweet, and finally it’s over, right?

PewDiePie’s song was supremely offensive and didn’t just take jabs at T-Series but contained several racist connotations about Indians in general. However, the song seemed to garner a lot of attention for PewDie and despite its problematic nature actually caused PewDiePie to gain followers and surpass T-Series.

Anyway, finally, this long drawn out war seems to have come to a natural end with T-Series not only declaring defeating PewDiePie’s subscriber count but also making a new YouTube record

As of March 30th, T-Series has become the world’s first YouTube channel ever to amass a 100 million subscribers.

However, with how things have progressed so far I wouldn’t put my party cap just on if I was T-Series. The battle with PewDiePie has been a long and arduous one and who knows what Felix and his subscribers hold in store next?
