Famous youtuber Felix Kjellberg, known by his fans as Pewdiepie, now owns Marie Byrd Land which was an unclaimed section of Antarctica until recently. The Swedish youtuber claimed the land after learning, to his dread, that the largest chunk of Antarctica was occupied by Norway, to whom Felix’s countrymen feel somewhat of a virtual enmity. Upon realizing that the southern ice desert still contained a considerable slice of unclaimed land, Kjellberg didn’t wait long to seize this convenient opportunity to expand his thresholds.
Pewdiepie has yet to release a video revealing his name for the region and details of his future plans for it. Werther he will gift it to the Swedish authority or has personal interest in mind we don’t know, but this is the first time in 80 years that a media influencer made an endeavor of this scale and size.
