Born in Gothenburg, Sweden, Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg originally pursued a degree in industrial economics an technology at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg. In 2010, during his time at th university, he registered a youtube accoont under th name Pewdiepie. Th follaein year, he dropped oot a Chalmers efter losing interest in his gree field, muckle tae th dismay a his parents. Efter failing tae earn an apprenticeship wi an advertising agency in Scandinavia, he then decided tae focus oan makin content fur his Youtube channel. In order tae fund his videos, Pewdiepie began sellin prints a his photoshop art projects an worked at a hotdug staun. Pewdiepie soon gathered mair online follaein, an in july 2012, his channel surpassed yin million subscribers. On 15 augist 2013, Pewdiepie became th most-subscribed user oan youtube, bein briefly surpassed in late 2013 by youtube spotlight. Efter regaining th tap position oan 23 december 2013 th channel haes noo amassed ower 80 million subscribers as a january 2019. Fae 29 december 2014 tae 14 february 2017, Pewdiepie's channel held th distinction a bein th most-viewed youtube channel. As a january 2019, th channel haes received ower 19 billion video views, rankin as th' 8th-most viewed oan th platform. Pewdiepie's maist noted youtube content includes his let's play-styled video gam commentaries, particularly a th horror genre. Mony a his earlie videos consisted a him reacting tae th frightening elements a horror games, althoogh he shortly broke his focus awa fae horror an played games a varying genres. While maintaining a focus oan video gam commentaries, Pewdiepie began incorporating comedic vlogs intae his content output wi an mair frequency. In th mid-to-late 2010s, pewdiepie began producing formatted vlogs that hud a concentration oan inturnet culture an interactivity wi his audience. His content haes bin praised as genuine an unfiltered, an in some cases, met wi controversy. As a result a an earlie 2017 controversy regarding allegations a anti-semitism in loads a Pewdiepie's videos, maker studios—the multi-channel netwurk (MCN) he wis signed to—ended thair partnership wi him. While he criticised th coverage a th situation an defended his content as jokes that wur taken oot o context, he conceded its offensiveness. Due tae his popularity, Pewdiepie's coverage o' indie games haes created an Oprah effect, boosting sales fur titles he plays. In 2016, Time cried him yin a "The World's 100 Most Influential People".
