Original Viral Content Hitmakers Part Three: PewDiePie


PewDiePie is the big daddy of them all with a net worth estimated at $12 million.  He is 25-years-old and he’s a video gamer from Sweden.  His real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg.  His fans love him on Reddit.

He has 38.2 million subscribers and 9.5 billion video views on YouTube.  He has 5 million followers on Instagram.  And 1.3 million followers on Vine.

He has an A+ rating on Social Blade where his estimated annual earnings range from $953K to $15.2 million.

He has TV and movie credits.  He was even uncredited in “Tomorrowland,” but I don’t remember seeing him in the film.  Someone must represent him, right?  But his representation isn’t listed on IMDB Pro yet.  Agents and managers should look into representing him immediately.

No one should think about PewDiePie making money, though.  At least, that’s what he says. He used to sell hotdogs. Then, everything changed when he started making videos of himself playing video games.

With the employment crisis and getting a good job, I say good for PewDiePie (Felix) for finding a way to support himself for the rest of his life.  Congrats, young man. You created your own career.

I know college-aged gamers who enjoy watching him play video games.  That’s right… that’s how he makes the most money. People actually watch a video gamer videotape himself gaming. Lots of people do it now.

His other videos are fun, too.
