It’s Been an Honor, Fellow 9-Year-Olds

PewDiePie has been entangled in a brutal battle with T-Series for months now. However, it appears that our beloved crab king, Felix Ka-jellberg, has finally succumbed to defeat. Who could have seen this coming?

T-Series surpassed PewDiePie in subscriber count on March 26, taking the lead by 3,600 subscribers, which quickly grew to 8,000 and then 10,000, causing widespread panic among 9-year-olds worldwide. After frenzied back-and-forth skirmishes between the opposing channels, T-Series took another massive lead on March 27, and now sits at over 50,000 subscribers above PewDiePie, as of the publishing of this article on March 29, 2019.

The battle, it seems, has been lost…

And though Mr. Cagelberg, um… Keelburg…? Shellburg…? — [I don’t know! There have been budget cuts at Pew News, and it’s not like they sent me to get schooling at the News Journalism Center for Reporters who Pronounce Real Words Good] — has put up a valiant fight in the past, as shown in the subscriber count trend graphic below, it doesn’t seem like the charming Swede has taken any extra measures to ensure his success this time, despite the tantalizing goal of being the first channel on YouTube to reach the milestone of 100 million subscribers.

The reason for T-Series’ most recent boost in subscribers is currently unknown. Their previous victory came after a trailer for a movie called PM Narendra Modi, which went viral, getting over five million views in 16 hours. Several popular Bollywood celebrities have also joined the battle in support of T-Series, pleading with Indian people to subscribe to T-Series.

A more general reason for the growth of several large Indian YouTube channels (it ain’t just T-Series, folks!) is simply that more Indians are getting online. Thanks to low prices from mobile network provider Jio, large portions of India are gaining affordable Wi-Fi. It seems like Blue Shirt Kid was right: more Indians are subscribing to T-Series every day, due to more widespread availability of internet access…

… I’m not supposed to give my opinion, BUT… it may also be due in part to an automatic subscriber system for T-Series… *cough, cough* SUB BOT!

T-Series was projected by social media statistics websites to pass PewDiePie’s subscriber count in late 2018. However, the nine-year-old army has rallied again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again, and managed to hold out until now. But the lumbering behemoth that is T-Series, and the collective might of India, the world’s second largest country by population, has finally managed to topple the charming Swedish former hot dog salesman from his position as the king of YouTube… for now.

T-Series may have won this battle, but the war is far from over.

If you have been sitting on the sidelines until now… it’s time to do your part. #WarFor100Million

      1. The war is far from over. Don’t worry, the sub gap is slowly dropping. Let the sub bot and T series enjoy the temporary victory. As we slowly take it away from them….

    1. You gave up, this is the reason he lost for those couple of days. Because people like you are giving up not doing anything more to save pewds. At my school we talk about it, we yell about it, we watch the sub count when ever we can. In class or not hope this helps you fight harder.
