If you have been to the YouTube in the past two months, you cannot be unaware of the paradigm shifting competition between two of the biggest YouTube accounts in the world. From the Western hemisphere we have Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg AKA PewDiePie, and from the Eastern hemisphere we have T-Series. And the two giants have been creeply close to claiming the title of ‘biggest YouTube channel in the world.’
The cold war began a few months back when T-Series, an Indian music channel, grew exponentially and came closer to surpassing Felix’s sub count. This was brought to attention by fans around the world and thus the paradigm shift began. PewDiePie was possibly the least to be motivated to do anything about this, but he capitalized on this new found popularity to release a song and a video about his competition. T-Series is an Indian record label company, so we are almost fully guaranteed that there will be no response to anything PewDiePie does. So, PewDiePie released a song titled “bitch lasagna” brutally attacking the T-Series channel.
Before this diss track was released, Neeraj Kalyan, President of T-Series, spoke about the fans going crazy about this competition;
“PewDiePie is indeed a good channel and there is no competition between T-Series & PewDiePie as both have different sets of audiences. I wish all the very best to PewDiePie.”Neeraj Kalyan (T-Series President)
The “bitch lasanga” video released on October 5, now has over 65 million views. This truly shows off the loyal fanbase of PewDiePie, whereas T-Series videos struggle to rake up 1 million views for a video. Felix mentions this in his T-Series diss track as

At the moment of putting this article together, T-Series has 75,381,513 subscribers on their YouTube channel with 12,913 videos. PewDiePie has 76,456,099 subs with 3,688 videos. To put these stats to perspective, T-Series operates in a demographic of 1.34 billion people. PewDiePie has fans all over the world, however, his main demographics would be the USA (325 million population), the UK (66 million population), his native land-Sweden (10 million population) and Canada (36 million population). T-Series releases music videos produced by artists. PewDiePie releases gameplays, songs, memes, news and many more created, produced and edited by himself. In a nutshell, Pewd’s 76 million subs are hard-earned.
Many popular YouTubers released public statements for their followers to follow PewDiePie in order to keep Felix as the King of YouTube. However, T-Series numbers are soon expected to catch up with Pewd’s.
