Each and every year YouTube celebrates some of its most popular content creators with what’s known as YouTube Rewind – a video summarising the memes and memories of the year.
YouTube Rewind is a controversial event, with YouTubers blasting the idea as it neglects to include some of the platform’s biggest stars – most notably, PewDiePie.
Various PewDiePie controversies over the years mean he’s no longer a welcome addition to Rewind, and he’s pretty vocal about not wanting to appear in it either.
However, this year’s Rewind has gotten PDP fans pretty amused, because one of the featured YouTubers has managed to sneak “Sub to PewDiePie” into the video.
The nifty little Easter egg comes courtesy of animator, JaidenAnimations. It’s not only a nice touch, but it’s also a reference to one of the biggest memes of the year, so really it’d be weird to not be included!
We’re almost to the end of the PewDiePie vs. T-Series contest, in which the two are vying for the title of YouTube Channel With The Most Subscribers.
We’ve seen fans buying billboards, handing out flyers and even hacking printers to get people to support PewDiePie. Yes – hacking printers.
In a last-ditch attempt to really push those subscriber numbers for Pewds, someone actually hacked printers all over the world, bearing the message: “PewDiePie, the currently most subscribed to channel on YouTube, is at stake of losing his position as the number one position by an Indian company called T-Series that simply uploads videos of Bollywood trailers and campaigns.”
It’s nice to know that “Subscribe to PewDiePie” will live on in the place where memes should be – YouTube Rewind.
