Now the difference between them is about 3.8 million subscribers.
The Indian YouTube channel T-Series pioneered 100 million subscribers in the history of the site. This is reported on the channel page.
The T-Series channel hosts Indian music videos and movie trailers. Over the past couple of years, the channel’s popularity has rapidly grown, as the Indian company “ struggled ” for first place in the number of YouTube subscribers with the popular video blogger Felix Chelberg, known as PewDiePie.
At the time of this writing, the difference between the PewDiePie and the T-Series is about 3.8 million subscribers. The confrontation between the channels began in October 2018. Then PewDiePie published a video in which he said that the T-Series could overtake him soon. He later recorded the anthem of the fight against the T-Series – the song Bitch lasagna.
Chelberg was supported by a number of his fans, and the phrase “Subscribe to PewDiePie” (Subscribe to PewDiePie) became a meme. At the end of October 2018, YouTube-blogger MrBeast bought an advertising campaign with billboards and ads on the radio in support of PewDiePie in a city in the USA. In November 2018, an unknown hacker hacked more than 50,000 printers, who printed a call to subscribe to Chelberg and unsubscribe from the T-Series.
At the end of April, Felix Chelberg asked his subscribers to stop the “Subscribe to PewDiePie” flash mob because of associations with a New Zealand shooter who screamed this phrase live before shooting people in the mosque .
