We've done the maths.

The world has been going crazy for months now. As YouTubers have been making the news left, right and centre, one burning question has been on everybody's lips... When the hell is Phil Lester going to hit 4 million subscribers?! Well, whilst we can't tell you the precise moment, we think we've figured out a pretty scientific way of predicting at least what day it's going to be... and it's sooner than you think!

Using SocialBlade, a tool that measures the total views, subscribers and income estimates of YouTube channels, we've been able to figure out that over the last 30 days, Phil Lester gains an average of 1,242 subscribers per day at the time of writing. Using this information we were able to create a very, very technical equation to calculate how many days it will be for this average to help Phil reach 4 million subscribers.

Here it is below, so please, feel free to fact check us:

4,000,000 - 3,977,631 (Phil's current subscriber count) = 22,369 subs to go

22,369 ÷ 1,242 (average subs per day) = 18.01 days!

4 million

Now, using this information, we can predict that Phil Lester will reach the hugely coveted 4 million subscriber marker by Saturday the 11th of March... but we want to get him there sooner. By using the Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook tag #PhilTo4Mil, lets see if we can spread the word and get there faster - because we want Phil to get to this crazy milestone way sooner than that! Especially as the guy has been on YouTube for 11 years, c'mon!

So please, help prove us wrong. Prove that Phil Lester won't hit 4 million subscribers in 18 days because YOU helped him get there sooner!

Remember to share this article with your friends, family and various household pets to spread the word. We've already missed his birthday, so maybe he can celebrate in time for Mothers Day?! It's all up to you now.
