Elon Musk Says He Filmed PewDiePie Collab As T-Series Subscriber Race Heats Up

Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, YouTube’s most-subscribed creator who has been in a protracted battle to fend off Indian production company T-Series to maintain that title, may have just recruited his biggest ally yet.

Tesla founder Elon Musk tweeted yesterday that he will appear on Kjellberg’s channel to host an episode of Meme Review — a regular series where Kjellberg comments on viral moments from across the web. It is unknown when the episode will air Musk and Kjellberg had a bit of a back-and-forth on Twitter last month, where the tech luminary said he was open to hosting the show. And that’s not all: the billionaire confirmed that he filmed the episode alongside Justin Roiland — the co-creator, EP, and voice star of Adult Swim’s beloved cartoon Rick And Morty.

In addition to touting seismic influence, both Kjellberg and Musk are prone to controversy — which adds to the unique synergy of the collaboration. The former recently came under fire for recommending an anti-Semitic, white supremacist YouTube channel, while the latter smoked marijuana in a highly-viewed video with Joe Rogan after controversially tweeting about taking Tesla private and engaging in a public spat with a diver who involved in the Thai cave rescue.
