Over the last five years, he has reigned over the video-streaming site as the most subscribed channel but a recent scare from an Indian music label company, T-Series, which seemed set to dethrone the king of your YouTube wall. Following a worldwide campaign, which saw all manner of channels, users and viewers do their best to keep PewDiePie on top, his top spot seemed secure. And after a recent decision by the platform, his position is set for the forseeable future.
After coming under immense crticism over this year's edition of its annual round-up of the most memorable moments, YouTube swung in to damage control, first by posting an apology video in which they promised to do better next year, and then announcing that they would be doing a site-wide screening to kick out bot accounts.
