“Scare PewDiePie,” one of the exclusive shows on the slate for YouTube’s YouTube Red subscription plan, puts mega-popular YouTube star PewDiePie (real name Felix Kjellberg) into real-life horror situations inspired by the games he popularly plays.
PewDiePie calls the show “part prank show, part suspense adventure.”
The clip shows PewDiePie being terrorized, while stuck in a metal box, by a man with a scythe before both smoke and then slime begin to fill said box. The YouTuber’s trademark scream is ever-prevalent throughout the clip, and one assumes, the show.
“The show promises a completely authentic experience as Felix goes into every episode without knowing what he’s in for,” YouTube said in a statement.
PewDiePie is YouTube’s biggest name, with more than 40 million subscribers. He’s also fast becoming a household name, having been a guest on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” last month.
The show is produced by “The Walking Dead” company Skybound Entertainment and Disney’s Maker Studios.
