If you’ve ever watched a PewDiePie video before, whether you like him or loathe him, then you’re already aware that he’s pretty darn loud. But thanks to the accessibility of sound proofing equipment and personal offices, YouTubers such as Felix, Mark and even Alfie Deyes have been able to continue their video-making career without disrupting people around them. But that was the case up until PewDiePie was evicted by his landlord… for being too loud?!
In a personal vlog, Pewd’s shows us around his office. We can see that the main room where he records 90% of his videos in is totally soundproofed – with even the ceiling covered in protective materials to spare his neighbours from his maniacal screaming. However, on the odd occasion that Felix films a HTC Vive video with his team, he has to venture into his living room in order to use the “extra space” required for a virtual reality game which unfortunately lacks sound insulation.
Whilst, in the vlog, he admits that he films Vive videos for “like an hour” in this room right in the middle of the day, apparently it’s too much to ignore for his angry landlord because he was caught on camera screaming at the YouTuber during a days filming session. Felix shares a clip with viewers that highlights the moment his landlord started bashing down his doorway asking the team to “keep the noise down”. Seems reasonable right? Well, he then suddenly points out that he has “no idea what you faggots are doing” but that they shouldn’t “fucking laugh about me”. How uncomfortable.
Only days later, Felix receives an official eviction notice from his landlord accusing him of “anti-social behaviour” due to noise complaints, saying that he needs to move out by the 29th of June – by the way, the official first noise warning turns up in the post after he was evicted. In response, PewDiePie looks straight in the camera and addresses his ex-landlord; “If you’re gonna be a landlord in Brighton, the gay capital of the UK, maybe try not to be a fuckin’ prejudiced piece of shit, how about that?”. He also jokes that he “could buy this house” and that he doesn’t “fucking need you”… we think he has a pretty decent point.
Before the vlog was released, PewDiePie expressed his anger via Twitter earlier in the week, which you can see below. We find out that his landlord allegedly thought Felix and his friends were “having gay sex”, which pleases him to know that he’s “clearly qualified to be casted for sound bites in gay porn”.
At the end of the vlog, we see Pewds move into his brand new office after being evicted, and he promises that a lot of new “shitty content is going to be made here… hopefully we can yell as much as we want”.
