The hard work of the fans has finally paid off. After months of begging, ‘PewDiePie’ Felix Kjellberg has finally given in to the pressure from his fans. He has finally watched Nickelodeon’s hit cartoon show ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’. But, what’s really pleasing for the fans is that he admitted he was wrong to think the show was “childish”.
Avatar: The Last Airbender debuted on Nickelodeon back in 2005. However, the show recently exploded into popularity after streaming giants Netflix added it to their platform in April. And since then, the show has received an avalanche of praise and popularity never seen before. They’ve fallen in love with Aang, Sokka, Katara, Toph, Zuko, Aapa, and Momo and fantasize about water, air, earth, and fire bending.
PewDiePie finally watches Avatar, and loves it!
But now, YouTube’s biggest content creator PewDiePie has also joined the list of millions of people who adore the show. In a video uploaded on the 26th of October, along with addressing the supposed “shadowban” by YouTube, Felix admitted how “wrong” he was on his initial assessment of the show, thinking that it would be “childish”. PewDiePie reacted to Avatar after a fan made a concept art of Felix’s wife, Marzia as waterbender Katara. Felix said:
I just finished Season 2! I know everyone was crazy about me watching Avatar, and it was so annoying. And it’s so childish, the first episodes, but it gets actually good.
And he was right. Viewers had been making memes of PewDiePie for months on his resistance to watch Avatar. But, he later admits that he was wrong and the show gets extremely good and it becomes more mature. But more importantly, Felix admitted he was wrong, as he continued:
It gets really good. So you were right, and I’m willing to admit I was wrong. Guys, I made a mistake. I pre-judged Avatar and it was actually great.
Furthermore, PewDiePie actually watched the pilot episode of Avatar in a live stream back in August. However, it failed to impress him. Fans had been begging Felix since last year to watch the show. A Reddit user even re-made the famous Avatar intro with PewDiePie in it:
Where can you watch it?
Finally, both fans and PewDiePie can now relax, as they both have gotten what they wanted. Even though Avatar started on a childish note, it grows and matures into a spectacular show. You can watch the show on Netflix. And if you’re done watching Avatar, you can watch the sequel show The Legend of Korra, set up 70 years after the events of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
