He is kent for his Let's Play commentaries an vlogs on YouTube.

Born in Gothenburg, Swaden, Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg oreeginally went fur a degree in industrial economics an technology at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg. In 2010, durin his time at the university, he registered a YouTube accoont unner the name Pewdiepie. The follaein year, he drappt oot o Chalmers efter losing interest in his degree field, at the scunner o his parents. Efter failing tae earn an apprenticeship wi an advertisin agency in Scandinavia, he then decided tae focus on makin content fur his Youtube channel. In order tae fund his videos, Pewdiepie began sellin prents o his photoshop airt projecks an haed thrift at a hotdug staun. Pewdiepie suin gaithered mair online follaein, an in Julie 2012, his channel surpassed yin million subscribers.

On 15 August 2013, Pewdiepie becam the maist-subscribed uiser on youtube, bein briefly surpassed in late 2013 bi YouTube spotlight. Efter regaining the tap position on 23 December 2013 the channel haes noo amassed ower 80 million subscribers as o Januar 2019. Fae 29 December 2014 tae 14 Februar 2017, Pewdiepie's channel haudit the distinction o bein the maist-viewed YouTube channel. As o Januar 2019, the channel haes received ower 19 billion video views, rankin as the 8th-maist viewed on the platform. Pewdiepie's maist notit youtube content includes his let's play-styled video gemm commentaries, particularly o the horror genre. Mony o his earlie videos consistit o him reacting tae the feartfu elements o horror gemms, awtho he shortly brakit his focus awa fae horror an played games o varying genres. Whiles keepin a focus on video gemm commentaries, Pewdiepie began pittin comedic vlogs intae his content ootpit wi an mair frequency. In the mid-tae-late 2010s, PewDiePie began producin formattit vlogs that haed a concentration on internet cultur an interactivity wi his audience. His content haes bin praised as genuine an unfiltered, an in some cases, met wi controversy. As a result o an earlie 2017 controversy regairdin allegations o anti-Semitism in loads a Pewdiepie's videos, maker studios—the multi-channel netwark (MCN) he wis signed tae—endit thair partnership wi him. Whiles he criticised the coverage o the situation an fendit his content as jokes that wis taen oot o context, he conceded its offensiveness. Due tae his popularity, Pewdiepie's coverage o indie games haes created an Oprah effect, boostin sales fur titles he plays. In 2016, Time cried him yin o "The World's 100 Most Influential People". Felix lives in Brighton wi his fiancée, Italian internet personality a fashion designer Marzia Bisognin.
