There are more videos that have reached one billion views on YouTube than you might think. Whether it’s Katy Perry singing “Roar,” Sia belting out “Chandelier,” or “Masha and the Bear” and their “Recipe for Disaster,” the most important videos in YouTube history are all pretty different. WatchMojo ranks the best of the most viewed YouTube videos.
PewDiePie is the brightest star on Youutbe, with a channel that reached over 50 million(!) subscribers as of yesterday. The Swede has announced he will delete his account. “Why?”, you may ask. Well, here’s a recap from the legend itself togheter with the public announcement of deleting his channel:
It was just a joke that blew up and got media across the Internet covering it as real news
The world’s biggest Youtuber – PieDiePie – is starting his own network.
As for now, the famous Swede is(and was) a part of the network Maker Studio, which is owned by Disney.
The youtuber’s network will be under Maker Studio and that has raised noisey voices stating that the he won’t dare to take the full step and start something outside of the Disney- owned network.
This kind of entrepreneurship can be compared with Aftermath(Dr. Dre) and Shady Records (Eminem), which have their own labels but are still owned, or under, Interscoppe records.
We wish PewDiePie the best and are hopfull that his network will eventually turn out to be a hit for both content creators and viewers.
So this is my Vlog, featuring the comic ‘ELFQUEST’ VOL.1. Check out the video below to find out more about this comic.

Swedish Youtube- superstar PewDiePie has (yesterday) said that according to Google Analytics, 40% of his audience is using ad-blockers.
While he does not critisize the users for using this kind of programs, he stated that ad-blockers are ‘devastating to smaller channels’.
According to his Tumblr page, he writes the following:
” Personally, I’m ok with if you use adblock on my videos. Ads are annoying, I get it, I’m not here to complain about that.
But for smaller channels, this number can be devastating.
Despite this, it seems that many people’s general attitude towards Adblock is very open loose:”
Regarding the new Youtube Red- service, where subscribers will pay a fee of $10 dollars a month, and will see access to exclusive content without any ads, he stated the following:
# YouTube Red exist largely as an effort to counter Adblock.
# YouTube Red exist because using Adblock has actual consequences.
Pewdiepie has an exclusive series coming to the service and he states that there is yet to be seen if smaller channels will benefit from the payed subscription model.
Yes, you’ve read that correctly. PewDiePie, by far the most popular youtuber there is, has now reached an impressive milestone: 10 BILLION views on his channel.
He is the first youtuber to ever reach those numbers.
The Youtuber has made the announcement 6 days ago, on twitter. Check it out below (loading may take some seconds):
Today we made history! 10 billion views! THIS IS INSANE. Thank you all so much! Kisses pic.twitter.com/L3Td2HMX4N
