Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (born October 24 1989 in Gothenburg), better known by his online nickname PewDiePie, is a Swedish Minecraft player on YouTube. He mainly does Minecraft videos. He has over 93 million subscribers.[5] On August 15 2013, his channel became the most subscribed channel on YouTube.[6] He was also the first YouTuber to get 14 million subscribers.

Before starting his own YouTube channel, PewDiePie studied Industrial Economics and Technology Management at Chalmers University of Technology until he dropped out. Disapproving of his decision, his parents cut off his support. He made a living by selling hot dogs until his channel got enough subscribers for him to make a living off of the channel.

PewDiePie was born in Gothenburg, Sweden. He lives in England with his girlfriend, Marzia Bisognin, who is also a YouTuber.

Pewdiepie was the first ever channel to have 50 million subscribers. PewDiePie is attempting to break the like record on YouTube.

PewDiePie has been creating what have been described as "silly and fun" videos such as Meme Review, You Laugh You Lose (YLYL) Pew News, and Last Week I Asked You (LWIAY). Now he has became a Minecraft let's play channel

He has just recently married his longtime girlfriend, Marzia Bisognin. The marriage was held at Kew Garddens.
