Watch the moment happen live

PewDiePie, as I'm sure you are aware, is currently locked in a heated battle with Indian production company T-Series with the latter getting closer and closer to eclipsing Felix as the most subscribed YouTube channel in the world.

T-Series describe themselves as "India's largest Music Label & Movie Studio" and "believes in bringing the world closer together through its music." Basically T-Series is sort of the exact opposite of Pewds. While Pewds is a solo, personality-based creator, T-Series is simply a giant company. It's like PewDiePie taking on Warner Bros.

Now, they are on the verge of being the most-subscribed to YouTube channel in the world.

Despite protests from fans - who point out that every Indian YouTube user who makes a new account is automatically subscribed to T-Series by YouTube, and (semi-serious) protests from Felix himself, the channel is set to snatch the top spot within the week.

Video stat wizards Socialblade have set up a handy round-the-clock livestream on their YouTube channel which lets you follow the battle in real time. Gaze below and you can see the magic (or tragic, depending on your feelings) moment for yourself.
