Peppa Pig Is More Popular Than Star Wars... In Australia?!

It's literally a different world down there.
No you did not read that title incorrectly. If a battle was to take place between Peppa Pig and Star Wars that was settled only with annual viewing figures, that well-dressed pig would win easy.
The video in question is nothing special, nothing controversial or even that exciting. It's literally a compilation video of Peppa Pig TV episodes. Check it out below for yourself and prepare for an education.
With the amount that this website and the entire world is talking about Star Wars at the moment, you would think that even Australia would be mad for The Force Awakens! But apparently Peppa runs the galaxy down under (harrr).
Peppa's winning video isn't too much of an outlandish accomplishment though, based on the crazy success of YouTube Red released earlier this year. With kids having freer access to watch their own shows for longer periods of time on their parents hardware, it's no wonder Peppa skyrocketed to Internet fame.
However, the fact it has beaten other family names like Jimmy Fallon, Justin Bieber and Christina Aguilera to the top spot just makes this win even more farfetched. Maybe next year Sesame Street will have a storming comeback and challenge PewDiePie for the top subscriber count? Who knows at this point... We give up.
