PewDiePie Didn’t Delete His YouTube Channel After All

A week ago, YouTube’s No. 1 star PewDiePie announced he’d delete his account once he reached 50 million subscribers.

PewDiePie said he’d be the first ever to reach such an accomplishment and couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate. So PewDiePie’s fans waited patiently as his subscriber count went up and this morning (Dec. 9, 2016) he finally reached his goal.

The Swedish YouTuber, whose real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, kept everyone waiting until a few hours ago when he uploaded a video titled, “DELETING MY CHANNEL.”

In the video, he explained that he was going to follow through with his promise and proceeded to show himself deleting an account. But just when you think he’s about to forfeit his 50 million subscribers (although tbh, who actually thought that was happening?), he zoomed in to reveal he was actually deleting his second account that only has two million subscribers.

So yea, he deleted AN account. But really it was a cop out and an outrageous waste of everyone’s time.

If you must, launch the video up top to watch his entire explanation.
