Felix uploaded a video on youtube while unboxing and said ‘I know a lot of people wanted a custom reward, but I don’t care,’ and he smiled, looking pretty close to tearing up. ‘This is awesome. And of course, thank you YouTube. Where would I be without you?’ as he showed off his new Play Button.
The star went on to remind people to subscribe, saying ‘We’re trying to hit a thousand million. Is that a billion? Oh my god. Let’s get it. We have to beat…Nah I’m just kidding.’ Despite Felix being pretty serious.
Just a few days earlier, the Youtube unveiled the new Red Diamond Play Button plaque for any channel that reaches 100 million subscribers. Currently, only T-Series and PewDiePie have reached the milestone.

Although T-Series beat the 29-year-old – real name Felix Kjellberg, to the punch on the 100 million subscribers mark, he received his Custom Play Button way back in 2016, which was molded into the shape of his channel’s logo a red ‘brofist.’
