Watch: First Clip of PewDiePie’s New Show ‘Scare PewDiePie’

The first clip from the YouTube show “Scare PewDiePie” has been released.

“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.

    Wow Really Pewdiepie needs more attention and money? Tell me this is fake I watch Pewds but geez this is 1 example of fame going 2 far….Seriously?

      Well, Pewds said on a preview for the first episode that he would make it free to watch but because it isn’t his thing and is produced by others he can’t have a word in it.

    • Evermore says:

      Well, you have to admit, he’s gotten this popular in so short of time for a reason and this show isn’t just revolving around him either. Other good youtubers are involved in this. Also, The companies producing the movie might’ve thought it would be a great opportunity for them to film Pewdiepie in a show those 40 million subscribers would watch. It isn’t just about Pewdiepie so saying his fame’s gone to far is a bit excessive.
