The epic saga came to its conclusion over the weekend...

Over the weekend, Felix had officially had it with waiting for his diamond play button. After turning his roasting hands upon the likes of JackSepticEye and even his own beard, PewDiePie looked YouTube dead in the eye and decided that the only course of action was to roast the hell out of his own platform. The result was truly savage, but then tragedy struck.

To help out with the epic roasting, CinnamonToastKen was flown in as a special guest all the way from Mississippi to act as Pewd's sideman when it came to the ultimate dragging the Internet has ever seen. But when CTK's doppelgänger turned up on a horse, holding a sealed container and declaring a very classy and glitter-coated apology, it looked like all of the Bro Army's work may have paid off... was Felix getting his diamond play button after all?

Unfortunately, the play button was stolen right from PewDiePie's very hands by Ken The Doppelgänger, who literally looked too thirsty to live without it for another second. After an intense struggle, Ken was able to steal the button and ride off into the sunset, leaving Felix crying on the floor until he called for his magical horse Shadowfax to come and aid in his fight. The next seven hours (like, 30 seconds) is dedicated to a fierce cowboy-style shoot out with Pewd's chasing Ken down a beach in order to retrieve the diamond he so rightfully deserves.

We can't decide if it's sabotage or not, but Ken then accidentally drops PewDiePie's beloved diamond play button and it smashes into a million pieces, spreading fathomable heartbreak across the entire planet as fans watch in horror. Felix weeps deeply into his broken mess of a trophy before asking YouTube for "one more wish... give me another play button". But tbh that's where we watched the video up to and then we paused it to write this article, so let me just quickly see how the video ends... NO WAY HE GOT A NEW ONE?! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. PEWDIEPIE NOW HAS HIS DIAMOND PLAY BUTTON AND ALL IS GOOD IN THE WORLD AGAIN.
