This is PewDiePie, who, with just shy of 30 million subscribers, is the most-followed channel on YouTube.


He's a Swedish 24-year-old named Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg.

In his videos, he mostly broadcasts himself playing video games while narrating the experience.

His videos have been viewed 5.6 billion times.

The Wall Street Journal says he's bringing in $4 million a year, thanks to advertisements.

He calls the game "genius, really" but his review says, in unkinder language, that he wishes there had been more women's breasts.

(Also, note: more NSFW language if you watch the video.)

Perhaps you're familiar with the Kim Kardashian game? It famously brought in $1.6 million in five days earlier this summer and cost your friends hours of sleep.

Some projections have said that it could earn revenues of $200 million a year.
