HistoryEdit

He removed the video and does not have it again.[2][3] "Minecraft Multiplayer Fun" has been said by some mass media to be the first video Kjellberg put on the newer channel.[4][5][6] Kjellberg said he was "so shy back then". He said that sitting in a room and talking to a microphone was "so weird".[4]

The video was put on his channel on 2 October 2010.[7] It is the oldest video on his channel that people can watch.[8] The video has Kjellberg and his friend Xebaz talking in Swedish and English.[9] The next videos he put on his channel are all in English.[10]
