PewDiePie Hits 10 Billion Views On His YouTube Channel

Popular Let's Player and South Park guest star Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg recently hit an impressive YouTube milestone.

Today, Kjellberg hit 10 billion views on his channel – a first for YouTube. The second and third most subscribed YouTube channels after PewDiePie (according to Wikipedia) HolaSoyGerman and YouTube Spotlight, boast two billion and 600 million views respectively. PewDiePie is way ahead of the pack.

Unsurprisingly, Kjellberg makes a lot of money playing video games on the Internet, and he discussed his impressive salary here. Let's players are a fairly new form of entertainment, and Jimmy Kimmel recently tried to understand the phenomenon, while successfully getting a rise out of its large fanbase. More on that here.
