Pewdiepie Uses Fiverr to Unveil a Contraversial Sign


#1

Well, it seems Pewdiepie is in a bit of hot water after using our platform to send out a very unsavory message. He then proceed to apologize of course, but personally I found it a little funny he went through with it. Thoughts?

I am going to flag this as the topic is too controversial for this forum.

I think it merits some discussion. 6 million+ people watched it, and the controversy will make even more aware of Fiverr.

That’s viral, not #getshitdone. One wonders if this was a subtle promo for Fiverr, but I doubt it, as the chosen sellers… dear oh dear.

The people who did that video were kicked off Fiverr, too.

Anyway, he clearly posted the video to be controversial. All that apologizing afterwards eyeroll it’s not like he had to publish it.


#6

Was it everyone that he ordered in the video that was kicked from fiverr or just the “**********” or something similar to that?


#8

Those guys were making big bucks making videos in a weird category.
I saw their profile a while back while browsing that category.

Game over for them. Dufuses not even realizing where this company originates from I bet. :-1:

:v: Peace

Well, he told them not to write the offensive stuff, but to subscribe to Keemstar. They obviously didn’t understand the instructions, as they wrote it on the thing and then superimposed the sub to K on the video.

Keemstar, of course, has a history of saying dubious stuff like this, so that was the joke. PDP is also becoming more controversial as that what the YT algos demand. The rest was just as stupid: asking some mathlab person to make a graph that looks like a male body part requesting that ****** guy to say stuff (and he said the name wrong lol) and er… oh, I don’t remember, but the seller delivered something useless because they didn’t want to be late with delivery. Oh, and someone to play Hearthstone with and he trolled them with some other game.

“********” I think it was. Anyway, they’re both banned now. But never mind that–the publicity! Now, PDP’s demo is the same as the trust whatever one, but… look which one everyone’s talking about.

Mod Note: Video removed.

I’m not even sure what to think of this. Yes, this will certainly make more people access Fiverr’s services, but those people will look into having fun and won’t think they could actually get stuff done around here.
Moreso, I hope this doesn’t encourage others to consider ordering as a joke and submit requests that sellers can’t deliver.


#13

ANY PUBLICITY, IS GOOD PUBLICITY!

Or so they say…


#14

More likely that a bunch of copycats will start their own videos…

…which says it all really.

Horrible concept! Drug use, porn and swearing do not make a decent promo unless your a drug dealer, prostitute or truck driver. (51 likes)

Notable comment near top that isn’t about the controversy:

We need another video about this website, I’m sure there’s more messed up crap on there

A certain new dimension to the original hashtag #getshitdone, indeed… lol.

In other words:
You :dollar: for :poop:, you get :poop:!

P.S
BTW not fair Poodipie. You gave free promotion to all those sellers now to your 52 million subs…:triumph:


#18

Those sellers spamming the Fiverr vid should take note :smiley:


#19

He was receiving 1 or 2 orders prior to this.
I just checked his reviews, in the last 48-72 hours, he has delivered at least 150+ orders!!!

#21
