PewDiePie

While surfing the Internet looking for something interesting, I came across a website called Social Blade that publishes statistics on YouTube channels. What jumped out at me is this guy, Felix Arvid Ulf Kjelberg (a/k/a PewDiePie), who they estimate makes $576.8K - $9.2M per year from his videos. He has 35,462,226 subscribers and his videos have been viewed 8,171,368,437 times!

I immediately thought those must be some insanely great masterpieces like Gone With The Wind, Citizen Kane and Blazing Saddles... but alas, I was wrong. After viewing a couple of posts, I am in complete and utter amazement as to what others see that makes him so popular. Take a look at his channel and let me know what I am missing (caution: foul language).
