PewDiePie's Rewind 2018 video gets more likes than actual YouTube Rewind in less than one day

NOTE: For all latest, breaking news related to PewDiePie, other YouTubers, and Youtube in general, head here.

This year’s YouTube Rewind 2018 was a disaster if you talk about viewers’ feedback. It became the most disliked video on YouTube in less than a week, dethroning Justin Beiber’s Baby, which took over a year to achieve the feat, and was occupying that position for years now.

Now, YouTube’s most subscribed channel PewDiePie has released a new video, which is nothing but Felix’s own version of YouTube Rewind. The video title YouTube Rewind 2018 but it’s actually good is a direct reference to how much hate the original YouTube Rewind 2018 got.

PewDiePie’s video starts the way the original video began, but then quickly diverts to what all PewDiePie thought should have been included in this year’s rewind. Besides all the funny stuff, the video – on a serious note – also remembers some of the well known personalities that we lost this year, including Stephen Hawking.

What’s worth mentioning here is that PewDiePie’s video has already got more likes than the original YouTube Rewind 2018. While the original video has 2.4 million likes, Felix’s Rewind 2018 has already got 3.3 million likes. As for dislikes, YouTube’s video has got a whopping 14 million dislikes, compared to 15k dislikes PewDiePie’s video has received so far.

If you go by comments on PewDiePie’s Rewind 2018 video, you’ll see fans are gathering support to get the video more likes than the number of dislikes on the official YouTube Rewind 2018 video. Here’s a tweet from Mr Beast urging fans to make the video get over 10 million likes by end of this week.

For those who aren’t in the know, PewDiePie wasn’t in this year’s official Rewind 2018 video, making it the second time in a row that YouTube’s most subscribed channel wasn’t included in a Rewind video since 2012.

So without further ado, here’s PewDiePie’s Rewind 2018 video:
