If you didn’t already know by now, PewDiePie is the most subscribed YouTuber in the entire world. With nearly 45 million subs, Felix has been on top of the YouTube throne now for years with no other channels even CLOSE to smashing his record. However, even though he may be number one on YouTube, the folks dishing out the diamond play buttons haven’t seemed to notice because Pewds is still waiting for his.
In a new video posted to his channel titled “DIAMOND PLAY BUTTON UNBOXING”, fans are led to believe that Felix has finally received the award that he’s been waiting for since it was announced at last year’s VidCon. They are a way of congratulating their top creators when they reach the unbelievable amount of 10 million subscribers… so surely you would expect PewDiePie to get his first?! Apparently not, as he unboxes both a Silver (100,000) and Gold (1,000,000) button instead.
Whilst Felix is known for his epic roasts and hilarious rants about anything to do with video games, fellow YouTubers or even supercars, this video did very little to hide the fact that Poods was clearly upset that he still has not received the coveted diamond play button; “Listen YouTube, I had enough of your bullshit. I’m calling you out right now. I want that shit trending on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr. Harass them anywhere – Instagram – I don’t give a fuck”… so you can know join the Bro Army with the new trend #givepewdshisdiamondplaybutton!
Even though his gold play button gets unboxed in an utterly smashed and “clearly trash” condition (which Felix blames on FedEx), PewDiePie goes one step further by issuing YouTube with a list of demands in order to deliver his much deserved diamond play button… and they only have a month to do it. Specifically, he wants four play buttons now, all covered in a classy amount of glitter that will be hand delivered by a very apologetic looking bearded man. Sounds doable, right?
YouTube have responded to Felix’s video on Twitter with the simple diamond emoji that you can see above, but judging the date of this interaction, it’s even funnier that they sent him the diamond emoji AND NOT the actual play button! The company have stated that buttons take 8-12 weeks to process and ship, so lets just hope it arrives before PewDiePie takes action.
