Get your own Pewdiepie driving license for only Ł3!! Or don't, because that's probably fraud and it's definitely illegal.
Your favourite unverified gamer is apparently having a hell of a week. In between promoting his upcoming new game and claiming to be broke, Pewds has taken some time to have a little peruse on eBay. Specifically, searching his own name to have a laugh at all the bootleg Pewdiepie merch.
It started with a very oddly-designed unofficial guide...
And abruptly ended with the discovery of a fake Pewdiepie driving license.
Yup. Somebody out there has actually gone to the effort to create a replica UK driver's license, with Felix's name, face and hometown printed on it. But also his channel name, and signed as "PEWDIEPIE". Because authenticity.
Searching Ebay ourselves, it's apparent that Pewds has joined the likes of Elvis Presley, Homer Simpson, Betty Boop and every individual Minion in the "novelty drivers' license" market. Possibly the highest point of validation a YouTuber has ever had? Possibly not.
We just wish we knew who was behind it. If only we had any leads...
