Some guy named PewDiePie, real name Felix Kjellberg which explains the nickname, made $7.5 million last year from posting annoying Youtube videos of himself playing video games, often inserting his rather banal musings on life. 

PewDiePie's videos have received over 9 billion views, giving him the most viewed Youtube channel of all time although if Rihanna ever gets really into cats he's going to be in trouble. 

It's good work if you can get it. PewDiePie is a pretty annoying dude, but you shouldn't hate the player, just hate his stupid videos. Beats bartending or servicing naval seaman on the down low. I've only done one of those. It was degrading.
