PewDiePie announced a major change in its YouTube channel, drawing on the likes of Corpse Pair and Dream and a growing trend among popular streaming channels on Twitch and YouTube. After a two-week break from YouTube, the most popular content creator is back on the platform. In preparation for his comeback, the YouTube king has annoyed A. “The big disclosure.” In the wake of this excitement, PewDiePie today released a new video on YouTube titled “You’re Back with a Huge Ad.” As you’d expect, the video was already popular with nearly 2 million views. Of course, every PewDiePie upload brings massive engagement, but this video, in particular, gets added attention to the aforementioned advert.
For those who haven’t seen the video, PewDiePie picks out a page from Dream’s playbook, Corpse Pair, Pokimane and other streamers and YouTubers and will now hide its identity behind an avatar. According to PewDiePie, it gets rid of the selfie-facing camera and does “face reverse detection” to stay fit.
“I’ve realized that the only way for me to stay relevant at this point … it’s imperative for me to do that,” PewDiePie said jokingly. “The corpse’s husband … there is no facial camera, it does not reveal the face, it is very popular. A dream … there is no face camera, it does not reveal the face, it is very popular.”
For now, the YouTuber hasn’t made a decision on a final avatar, but for most videos, use a temporary avatar, or more specifically, the avatar below:
For now, it remains to be seen how this change will always be. In the video, PewDiePie asks fans to help find and pick the avatar, which at least indicates that the avatar above won’t be around for long. Once again, it’s hard to gauge how long PewDiePie will last. In the video, he’s clearly joking and possibly making fun of the trend, but it also looks like he’ll keep the iconic at least for a while.
