T-Series overtook PewDiePie sometime around March 25 and has been on the upward track ever since.
The battle between PewDiePie and T-Series has been intense over the last week and the constant shuffle in rankings has been a rather interesting watch. T-Series has now managed to beat PewDiePie couple of times and extended its gap by a huge subscriber base.
T-Series overtook PewDiePie sometime around March 25 and has been on the upward track ever since. Although, the subscriber gap between the two channels keeps changing every second, it is safe to say that T-Series has a good lead for now. Now, it has to be mentioned that PewDiePie has been generating immense traction from its wide fan base and also from fellow YouTubers. Also, popular DJ Alan Walker also joined the bandwagon with “subscribe to PewDiePie” campaign on Twitter.
In the Twitter video posted from his account, Bhusan said, “There is an Indian YouTube channel on the brink of becoming world’s number 1. It has taken us a lot of effort to come this far. To take my father Mr Gulshan Kumar’s dream forward, I started this channel. Today, it belongs to you, to the entire nation. It’s a historic moment for all of us. So let’s come together and subscribe to T-Series YouTube channel and make India proud,” and floated the tag #bharatwinsyoutube.
Right after the video hit the social media, the craziness spread and fans of PewDiePie replied with a variety of memes reading “Subscribe to PewDiePie”. After the video was posted by Bhushan, PewDiePie himself said that “they [T-Series] are getting desperate.”
Such was the madness that a day ago PewDiePie’s followers even vandalised the national war memorial in the US and wrote ‘Subscribe to PewDiePie’. Even Tesla’s Elon Musk joined the campaign by taking part in an episode of ‘meme review’ in PewDiePie’s channel – which caused the subscriber gap to widen to 200,000 before falling to 22.8k.
