PewDiePie Makes $7.4 Million In Profit In 2014

YouTuber PewDiePie and his company PewDiePie Productions AB, has accrued $7.4 million in profit in 2014 (and yes that’s profit… not revenue). Real name Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, the popular Swedish YouTuber has more than 37 million subscribers and spends a large majority of his time making videos about video games.

The report comes courtesy of Swedish gaming site [via Gamerant]. They report that Kjellberg and his company profited by 63 million SEK in 2014, which translates into 7.4 million U.S., dollars.

A large portion of that profit goes toward charity and it doesn’t seem like there’s any slowing down at the moment. Gamerant notes that the $7.4 million is up from his previous record of $7.2 million in 2012.

Some people complain that YouTube is stingy but apparently Kjellberg is making off good like a bandit robbing a bank without a vault door. Making millions by producing a video every other day doesn’t seem like a bad way to make a living.

So what makes this guy so popular? So famous? Such a ladies man? Well, he produces videos like the one below.

Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one who had to take a shower after watching that.

Of course, teenage girls have absolutely fallen in love with him. They fill up tumblr with all sorts of fan-fiction, homoerotic art and love letters that Kjellberg would probably want to go his whole life not reading if he wants to keep what sanity he has left.

Nevertheless, there’s no denying the popularity of the YouTube persona that is PewDiePie. Pumping out videos about games and making silly voices and just hamming it up for the teeny boppers who will look back on their obsession with this YouTube star a decade from now and shudder with the same kind of embarrassment that middle-age women experience when they see things like this…

  1. God bless, teenage girls. Do I get it? No, but they’re adorable in their enthusiasm in a terrifying way.

    ETA: And may PewPewDie enjoy every single one of his dollars. He’s gonna need it when they turn on him.

  2. I think the big thing for this guy will be knowing when to quit and to escape before it all implodes on him.

    1. I’ve been thinking about this…

      I mean, he has to know that this is going to fold in on him one day. His looks aren’t forever and his voice will eventually fade. I’m curious if he has a nice stockpile put aside?

      It’s also kind of crazy because PewDiePie garners more views and has more daily exposure than some of Hollywood’s biggest stars right now. The guy is viewed by hundreds of millions of people — and TV and movie studios would kill for the kind of exposure that PewDiePie gets.

      1. Yeah, it’s kind of like the Youtube version of a pop star burning out. As long as he doesn’t twerk he should do fine for a while. If he’s smart he won’t blow all the cash.
