If not, the line in the song in which he literally spells out the URL you need to get to his site will probably clue you in. YouTube is turning into giant merchandise-plugging factory, where old vlogger standbys like confessionals, stunts, and pranks are rapidly and shamelessly being shoved out in favor of endless plugs for merch.
As Bloomberg reported back in Februaryeven successful YouTubers can struggle to make a wage from advertising revenue alone, and so rely on sponsorships, brand deals and merchandise sales for income.
Merchandise is big business. Fanjoy, an American e-commerce company which handles merch sales for Jake Paul and other big YouTubers including Casey Neistat, shippeditems in the first and-a-half months ofaccording to The Daily Beast. Others have created their own line of merchandise independently, or through other retailers. Both sold out within days of release.
And then there are the Paul brothers. Vloggers Jake and Logan Paul, who have more than 40 million subscribers between them, each have their own line of branded merchandise, which they mention frequently in their videos. They do, however, prove useful when either wants to mention their new line of items — always dropping now, always soon to sell out — to their audience.
Logan Paul went one betterattaining a rare YouTube trifecta: It may shift from day to day. I read as many comments as I possibly can. Which videos are the most popular?
My audience has grown successively. I keep testing new things all the time. Squeezed in between kitchen and bathroom, with small dark windows along the top end of the wall, the room suffers from poor air conditioning. On the walls, there are horror themed paintings, a man in a hood but without a face and an evil clown.
The local county administration bought one of them. I bought my first computer with the money I made. Once the screens and lights are all turned on, it gets very hot very quickly in the little room.
In the background, you can often hear the sound of Felix shouting from his room. The comments on YouTube make up a very special kind of monster. The fans treat Pewdiepie both like a friend and as an unobtainable idol. Many do everything in their power to get attention, a reaction.
Felix has close to 4 million followers on Twitter. When he replies to any of the hundreds of fan accounts — which often use pictures of himself, Marzia or one of his dogs as profile pictures — the receivers become overjoyed and get a great deal of attention themselves. Seeing all this stuff on Facebook and Twitter worries me a little bit. Towards the end of August, shortly after reaching 30 million subscribers, he posts a video where he suddenly states that he will close down the comments on the channel.
On his Tumblr the following day, he asks people to cast their votes on a new idea: As a protest, he has turned comments off while hoping to find some kind of solution. How does it feel to have so many viewers? Does it influence you that they all have opinions?
Unfortunately, other people will reply to them, directing even more attention to the mean people. The comment field is a war zone; there is no limit to what people will say.
I read somewhere that from a quality point of view, the YouTube comments are the worst in all of social media. I think most people would agree with that. Do you remove comments? One clip can have 60 comments and I post two each day. The Brighton beach promenade is a wide boulevard, scarcely populated by bicyclists, people walking their dogs and joggers. We bring Edgar the pug on a walk along the sea Felix lets the dog run loose for a bit and at first looses the leash on the pebbled beach before turning around back into the city, making a small loop through a little park and some residential neighborhoods.
When we make a short stop in a town square, a man in his mid-twenties, with a thin mustache and a guitar case on his back pass us by. Further down the street, we pass a bunch of loud and rambunctious teenage boys by a bus stop.
When we walk by, they turn silent. Do people recognize you a lot? Marzia is more troubled by it; she finds it hard to meet new people, so she usually sneaks off as soon as she can. If you would tweet out your address, how long would it take before someone stood here right outside your door? Just tweeting a picture of what our house looks like would be enough though.
What do your fans want when you see them? Sometimes, Felix posts them on his site or Tumblr. The same goes for fan videos. Who are your oldest friends?
Who are your YouTube-friends? When it comes to your work, what makes you the happiest? Do you get performance anxiety? How long has it been since you took a long break? These days, if I go away somewhere, I always prepare videos in advance. Instead, I sometimes make gaming videos with people I know and the result turns out great.
Why do you work alone? Not to sound self-important, but no one knows how to do this better than I do. Disney recently sent over a bunch of people dressed as Stormtroopers to make a video together with me, for charity. First of all, they got upset when they found out that there was no specific room for them to change clothes.
It all turned into chaos and it took a very long time. Finally, we ended up with something that they were going to edit but it was so bad I had to do it over and edit it myself. Perhaps a bit of a control freak. Felix Kjellberg seems to be somewhat of a unicorn in the YouTube world.
The difference, as in the case of Variety, is not just that Sean and Jenna are involved in a more traditional form of humor, are Americans, perform in public and branch out into other media.
Sean Dawson has moved to Hollywood and is currently making his first feature film. The difference is also personal. When he speaks about his girlfriend or family, he does so in a warm and loving way, he holds the door up for you and listens intently. No matter in what context it is displayed, honesty is an emotion that is universally recognizable.

You could make anything with your name. How have you made your choices so far? The money is partly a touchy subject.
Both how you make money as a YouTuber — an intricate path of advertising money through several intermediaries — but also how much Felix actually makes as Pewdiepie. The operating profit was The company distributed 10 million SEK in dividends to the sole shareholder: When Felix first was a rising star on YouTube, he joined the network Machinima.
I had no personal contact with them whatsoever. It took Felix hiring his own lawyer and then half a year of legal work to free himself from the network.
It must be hard for them to adjust to you? There is really no good reason to sign all the money over to them. But surely the need for a legal intermediary is easy to comprehend?
Do you get to have a say in who advertises on your channel? Have you ever stopped any ads? Exactly what videos are displayed there is decided by a certain algorithm.
There are several ways to cheat your way to an audience on YouTube. The traffic to my channel is so heavy that even if a clip gets shut down quickly, the people involved still manage to make quite some money. Recently, this one person posted copies of my videos for a week and he managed to get 4 million views — equaling at least 5 dollars. I should do it myself, ha ha. Pewdiepie is the biggest star of Twitch as well.
Close to billion-dollar deals are being made, completely dependent on the material uploaded by lone gamers like Felix.
The French daily news show Le Grand Journal made in a very French manner fun of the gaming sub culture as the deal became a reality.

In just a few days, French gamers had collected 76 signatures demanding an apology from the show, since there is no research what so ever showing that gaming videos are more addictive to watch than TV or any other kind of entertainment. The hosts did apologize the following day and managed to mispronounce Pewdiepie again, this time calling him Pew-dipi.
Do you feel like you have some kind of responsibility when it comes to your audience? The loneliness in front of the computer screens brings us together.
But I never set out to be a role model; I just want to invite them to come over to my place. Do you pay a lot of attention to what they say to you? Sometimes I get disappointed, if lots of people think something about me that is all wrong.
For instance, I make very, very few promotions. But if I bring something up that I really love, like the band Radiohead, people write and ask how much I was paid to talk about it. Likewise, if I mention on Twitter that I find this or that Kickstarter project cool, people immediately start to ask what economical interests I might have in it.
Things like that can bring me down. Since you have such a huge, quite young audience, do you adjust accordingly? The cussing has turned into a thing of its own.

Since my audience comes from all over the world, I also try to avoid issues like religion or making fun of a specific country. I never chose my audience and my objective has never been to attract young people in particular.
For instance, some games I play have an year age limit. When it comes to kids, what do you think the appropriate age limit for your videos should be?
Like one of those cheesy words American college jocks would call each other. My viewers thought it was fun so I just kept saying it. Unfortunately, there are always people looking to misunderstand and interpret things in the worst of ways. We speak again after that. What did you think about this recent criticism? It seems pretty unfair to claim something like that, why not attack those who are prejudist for real, people who say hateful things?
I guess it results in less clicks.
