Is PewDiePie’s YouTube Rewind 2019 better Than the Original one?
It's better and personal
<em>Looks like PewDiePie has unlocked the secret to making a good YouTube Rewind video. According to the stats, Felix Kjellberg’s version is doing way better than the original YouTube Rewind 2019. With a like -to-dislike ratio of 2 million to 21k compared to 3 million to 8 million, Pewd’s wrap-up video is more popular than the platform’s offering.
What is PewDiePie’s YouTube Rewind 2019 about & Why are people Liking it so much?
While the world’s biggest video streaming platform struggles to bid a memorable farewell to the year, PewDiePie is making headlines with his version of YouTube Rewind 2019. The video titled “YouTube Rewind 2019, but it’s better” is performing similar to his re-make of YouTube Rewind 2018 and people are loving it. At least, that’s what the numbers are saying.
Unlike YouTube’s Top 10 WatchMojo like vibe, PewDiePie’s meme-centric year’s round-up is more engaging and probably that’s the reason why viewers are liking it so much.
YouTube Rewind 2019 PewDiePie version includes the likes of Ninja, Keanu Reeves, Logan Paul, Elon Musk, Dr. Phil, MrBeast and other big names from YouTube. MrBeast is referenced with his successful #TeamTrees initiative. Logan Paul v KSI re-match is referenced with the slogan “Let’s go!” In PewDiePie’s 2019 re-make video and of course the meme-filled video also showcases the famous PewDiePie vs T-Series battle. The best part, however, was the tribute to those YouTubers who aren’t among us anymore. PewDiePie features Dillon The Hacker, Grant Thompson, Juice WRLD, and Etika in it too.
PewDiePie finishes off the meme-filled rewind with a good-luck message to YouTube and looks like he means it.
What was Lacking in YouTube Rewind 2019?
Kevin Allocca and his team tried to do something different this time but different doesn’t mean making a WatchMojo-like countdown of the top 10 most viewed content. I mean, anyone can make a video like that. Jake Paul calls it a music video on steroids. C’mon YouTube, you’re better than this.
PewDiePie didn’t just shove-in the most-viewed videos in his version. His offering is funny, quite engaging and personal. It’s something people will remember for a long time and I believe this is exactly why more people are liking it.
