PewDiePie Didn’t Get A Super Bowl Commercial But ‘Sub To Pewds’ Still Appeared

PewDiePie and MrBeast fans all over the world were eagerly awaiting a ‘subscribe to PewDiePie’ commercial during last night’s Super Bowl, and were left pretty disappointed when none appeared.

MrBeast had been hinting for a while that he’d be paying for a commercial to air during the event in aid of the PDP Vs. T-Series subs war.

It’s not really too surprising that it didn’t happen. It’s been suggested that the cost of 30 seconds of Super Bowl screen time would set you back almost $6 million!

However, that doesn’t mean MrBeast gave up on his dream of getting the meme into the Super Bowl, and he actually managed to achieve his goal.

Wearing t-shirts to tell the worldwide audience just how to defeat T-Series, MrBeast and friends made it onto the screen. Several times. Check it out below!

People are pretty impressed that MrBeast managed to sneak PDP into the Super Bowl at all, even if he didn’t get a commercial lined up.

Over the weekend the sub gap between T-Series and Pewds closed significantly, with an incredibly small difference of just 50,000 subscribers.

How did PewDiePie manage to keep his crown? He played Fortnite during a YouTube livestream of course, granting the wishes of all the nine-year-old fans of his channel. If you’re not up to date with your PDP memes, it’s become a bit of a joke that he won’t play Fortnite. Turns out he was just keeping the Epic Games guns hidden up his sleeve for the final hours of the subs war.

The stunt worked, and at the time of writing, there’s over 130k subs difference in favour of the Swedish star.

Have you subbed to PDP yet?
