Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (born October 24 1989 in Gothenburg), better known by his online nickname PewDiePie, is a Swedish Gaming/Commentary channel on YouTube. His content has changed significantly since he began uploading, now focusing on Minecraft gaming videos and established series such as 'You Laugh You Lose' and 'Last Week I Asked You (LWIAY)'. He has over 100 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 wife, 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 was the first creator to reach 100 million subscribers on YouTube, though he did lose the position of first channel to reach the milestone by the Indian music channel TSeries.

PewDiePie has been creating content that can be described as "silly and fun". Videos such as Meme Review, You Laugh You Lose (YLYL), Pew News, and Last Week I Asked You (LWIAY) are just a few examples. Recently, he has been uploading many Minecraft videos.

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