The Swedish internet sensation is a web-based comedian and video producer, known for his Let’s Play commentaries and vlogs on Youtube.
Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, who was born in Gothenburg, Sweeden, originally wanted to work in industrial economics and technology management.
But while he attended Chalmers University of Technology, he created a YouTube channel under the name of PewDiePie.
A year later he decided to give up his studies at the university, much to dismay of his parents, because he got bored with his degree field.
He then tried but failed to earn an apprenticeship with an advertising agency in Scandinavia, which made him focus on creating more content for his YouTube channel.
To fund his videos, he had to sell prints of his Photoshop art projects and also worked as a hot dog vendor.
He quickly gained popularity on his channel and in 2012, PewDiePie surpassed on million subscribers.

The latest controversy is regarding allegations of anti-Semitism in several of his videos, which made Disney-operated Marker Studios to end their partnership with him, dropping him from their network.
This had a bad impact on his channel, making him lose a part of his net worth.

PewDiePie’s channel has held the distinction of being the most viewed of all time in various occasions and as in April 2017 his channel has received over 15 billion video views.
Through his channel he has raised money for charities and boosted sales for titles of the games he plays in his videos, thanks to his popularity.
