PewDiePie savior Markiplier overtaken by India's Zee TV in YouTube subscribers

NOTE: For all latest, breaking news related to PewDiePie, head here.

If you follow PewDiePie, you must be aware of the ongoing PewDiePie vs T-Series YouTube subscriber battle. While the race is still tight, there was a time when it appeared T-Series will overtake PewDiePie as YouTube’s most subscribed channel.

It was another popular YouTuber Markiplier who saved the day for felix ‘PewDiePie’ kjellberg when the sub gap with T-Series was less than 100,000. Markiplier had started a live broadcast titled ‘I Literally Won’t Shut Up Until You Subscribe To PewDiePie.’

The stream lasted for close to an hour, and resulted in PewDiePie subscriber count jumping by over 100,000.

We even recently highlighted a fan made video which captures the essence of Markiplier’s help to Felix. Do check it out.

But now, it appears PewDiePie might have to return the favor in some way or other, as Markiplier has been left behind by another Indian YouTube channel Zee TV, which is basically an entertainment-focused television channel.

As you can see, the gap currently is too small, in fact, practically insignificant, so it would be interesting to see how things unfold over the next few days. Will PewDiePie come to Markiplier’s rescue? Well, we’ll have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, PewDiePie fans have already taken notice of this development. Here are some funny/hilarious comments from them:

They are attacking from behind!

THIS WAS SENT BY T-SERIES TO DISTRACT US!?!

This is WWII T series= Germany Pewdiepie= Britain Mark= America Zee tv= Japan

Noooooo 9 year old army on the way

WE NEED TO HELP OUR ALLIES 9 YEAR OLDS UNITE AND ATTACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Platoon 3 follow me, the rest focus on the main battle, the sub gap is under 1 mil again

It’s worth mentioning that there’s and in fact there never was any competition between Markiplier and Zee TV. Just that Markiplier helped PewDiePie to say ahead of India based T-Series, and now, another Indian channel has left behind Markiplier in YouTube subs is the reason this development is gaining traction.
