The Accidental Emperor

He’s arguably the most (in)famous person a lot of people have never heard of. Or, if you’ve heard of him, you probably don’t know a lot about him. Felix Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, makes videos on YouTube and has more than 100 million subscribers (to put that in perspective, that’s roughly 100 million more than this newsletter has). The NYT’s Rabbit Hole podcast has a two-part profile of him. Very interesting.
