Felix Kjellberg of Sweden, more popularly known by his online moniker PewDiePie, owns a channel with over 36 million subscribers on YouTube and video views of nearing 9 billion.
PewDiePie is known for his collection of comedy videos, most of which show him playing video games. His early videos mostly showed his comical reactions, filled at times with profanities, when playing video games in the horror genre.
Social Blade, a statistics monitor for the video-sharing website, estimates PewDiePie's earnings at between $1.2 million and $18.9 million every year. The range is very wide due to the huge variation in CPM, or cost per thousand views, for each channel, which can be from $0.25 cents to $4.00 each view.
Earning a minimum of $1.2 million per year is definitely not bad at all for a man that became known for screaming his head off while playing scary video games. Here are PewDiePie's top 15 most viewed videos that have vaulted him to such a legendary status in the online video industry.
