'Before PewDiePie would become the king of Youtube' I'm sure you've seen these videos out there 'Before PewDiePie was ever a guest on the late night show with Stephen Colbert' They seem quite popular, and they like to show up in your suggestion bar Unsolicited. 'Before Felix raised over 1 million dollars for his various charities' Before they were famous videos. I mean, who doesn't want to know what happened to Brock Lesnar... or FouseyTUBE Who doesn't wanna see all these people, And of course, There's one of me Let's watch it, together. 'Before there was ever a Bro Army, Before he started earning 4ml a year' Four million a year? Diet coke aaaahhhh. That's cute 'Felix Killberg' Woah! Woahahahah! what the fu... Sorry, WHAT? Why is it so hard for people to pronounce my name? I don't think it's that hard Shellburg Shellburg Maybe that's why they made an updated version I'm, I'm kinda curious. PewDiePie was born Felix Shell...Kellburg. Felix Kellburg. Felix Shellburg? Okay, you guys try doing it. No. No, I guess ... guess they didn't get it right in that one either, huh? 'Felix Killberg' initially went on to university to persue a career in technology management and industrial economics he then dropped out, opting instead to start up a career on youtube, and when he first started his side job' STFU Why does everyone get this story wrong? I see it everywhere, so I don't blame you, Mr M...Ma...Ma... MACCRUEHEHEHDEN I jaw, I dropped outta high... I dropped outta university because I didn't like it. To drop outta university, to pursue Youtube That'd just be fucking stupid. I'm not that dumb, alright? You may think.........haha... I wouldn't do... I wouldn't do that you think I was some loser? Mum, Dad, I'm gonna drop outta high school Cause I wanna be a Youtuber! It was boring, alright? It was fucking boring! That's a big surprise for everyone? It was boring Industrial Management and Economics, It was boring as hell! Everyone was boring as hell, I...I couldn't relate to fucking anyone! e...er...e....video game is that like a i love playing with a Wii Oh, you don't like video games, Then I can't relate; then we have nothing to talk about! 'He then dropped out, opting instead to start up a career on youtube and when he first started his side job, was selling hot dogs on the street. A lot of people seem to wanna shit on me because I used to sell hot dogs Yeah, like you had all prestigious jobs And you know what? My hot dogs Were fucking Oh, it's so fucking good. And you know what? Most people didn't even sell...wanna buy hot dogs Actually... Uh...we didn't...the guy, my boss was so fucking cheap He was like, "Don't cook the hot dog, just microwave them, and dip them in the hot dog sauce. People don't tell the difference." PewDiePie was born on October 24th 1989 And raised in Gotham, Sweden [WHEEZES] [CLAPS] Yes! That's Stockholm. The capital of Sweden. How did you fuck that up?! Just Google Gothamberg! There's so many pictures how did you fuck that up? "His mother Johanna is a former KappAhl CIO" I'm the only one who thinks this is funny because he's so fucking bad at... KappAhl KappAh KappAhl KappAh KappAhl It's KappAhl, a ver... a well-known, uh... clothing company 'His mother Jowanna is a' First of all, Johanna Not Jo'anna. FUCK ME GODAMMIT do I have to keep going? 'And his father Ulf is also a chief executive for this company.' No, he's CEO of another company. But, uh...you, you did it. 'Felix entered a photoshop competition and again he got to flex his creative muscle. He ended up winning and his art was put on display in an art gallery.' Yeah, this is the art that I put out for my, uh So good. Fucking hell, you could have at least, like, showed some of my work. Okay? Hey, I like to photoshop girls. Alright, it's fun. So the real story here is that I, I... I loved photoshop, that's what I wanted to do instead of school I almost got an apprenticeship at one of the best advertising agencies, In, uh... In Scandinavia. I was so close, it was like between me and another person, and then I didn't get the job, and I was like "FUCK". I, but I wanted to do Youtube as well, so I managed to sell some of these pictures uh, because I, I printed like a limited edition but, enough to buy a computer and when I had the computer, I could start making videos. THAT'S how I got started. THAT'S the story. You're welcome. 'At this time, Youtube was home to plenty of vloggers but there was no one that stuck solely to that of a video game vlogger, so quickly he realised he had found himself a little niche' It is true though I remember there was no big gamer... back in the day It was all just like, Fucking vloggers, they were so big. Like, big names like Ray William Johnson I paved the path, you're welcome by the way. Alright? If your a gamer on Youtube, you should fucking Suck My Dick. 'Well, he was a student at Chalmers His videos started to take off attracting an increasingly large number of viewers. This was so awkward like, trust me, it's the most awkward fucking thing. If you make videos, and like, if other people know about it or not when that line, it's like, cause obviously I didn't go around and show people all my videos. so some people discover them by themselves and it's... like, the people that are in your friend group and they find out you make videos it's so fucking awkward. It's not a good time to be a Youtuber when that happens. 'While playing the video game Amnesia he found himself scared and thought it might relieve some of the stress if he put the camera on himself as some way of having company while playing the game.' That's true. It wasn't a huge success. It was more like, the start of something. I never, uh... like I never got like a viral video that just BOOM Boom, made me big. It just kept... i just kinda kept making videos and built an audience and... luckily you guys keep coming in and... that's, i'm...i'm...i'm proud of that I'm really proud of the fact that It's just been something I built by myself and not just been lucky with a big boom hit or whatever. 'Felix recalled that there was Hmm... Felix recalled that this was the first ti...' [GOTCHA] Just take this video down, dude this is embarrassing [Laughs] Sorry what was that? 'Felix recalled that there was HM Felix recalled that this was the ' [EXPLODES] aur that's so embarrassing 'Felix recalled that there was HM Felix recalled' I just wanna say, AUUEEUA I just wanna say that errr... 'HM.' Beautiful. Just beautiful.
