PewDiePie reportedly made $7.45 million in 2014

Just a smidgen more than me.

Love him or hate him, Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg has the biggest subscriber base on YouTube, currently sitting at over 37 million in total.

According to a report from Swedish tabloid Expressen, Kjellberg’s company PewDiePie Productions AB made over $7.45 million or 6.7 million in profits in the year 2014. 

Believe it or not, the man has worked hard for the money; Kjellberg has done a lot for charities, single-handedly brought many games into the limelight, produced more than 2,300 videos, and will soon be a published author.

Seeing these kind of numbers will probably re-spark arguments from game developers and publishers demanding a cut of money from videos featuring their content. Joy.
