Is this his biggest PewDiePie gambit yet?
The ever-wily YouTuber took a crew of four friends along to the massive annual sporting event, all wearing t-shirts which spelled out the message 'SUB 2 PEW DIE PIE'. This meant that Beast was making good on his previous promise to promote PewDiePie during the Super Bowl.
He surprised fans by tweeting out: "We bought seats right behind the field goal, every kick on the end zone with rams paint will have our sub 2 Pewdiepie shirts."

A picture of their t-shirt team was even tweeted out (whether accidentally or not is for you to decide) by ESPN. This tweet was also shared by PewDiePie himself.

Thanks to some clever positioning and forward-planning, the message ended up being broadcast multiple times throughout the event:

And MrBeast seemed convinced that his stunt had helped Felix's cause:
Fans were, naturally, shocked to see MrBeast on their screens
Felix is currently locked in a perilous battle with Indian media company T-Series, which is posed to take his subscription crown and MrBeast has been doing everything in his power to boost Pewds' numbers.
What will he do next? We're on the edge of our damn seats waiting to find out.
