YouTuber Saimandar ‘Saiman Says’ Waghdhare’s trip halfway across the world to meet Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg went viral – but it had an incredibly fitting end.

On April 21, Saiman posted a hilarious video called ‘PewDiePie, I’M COMING FOR YOU !!! (meet me pls)” where he catalogued his time in Southwick, located in the south of England, hoping to meet the world’s largest YouTube personality.

After a touching appeal and ritual performance, Saiman was able to get PewDiePie’s attention in a May 2 video that showed him finally meeting the star YouTuber after traveling all the way from Bangladesh.

Saiman SaysThe YouTuber made a ton of headlines when he debuted his “holy pilgrimage” to meet PewDiePie.

An unbelievable turnout for an incredible trip

Saiman’s “#PewdsMeetsSaiman” campaign eventually pulled through, as the two met up on the shores of an overcast Brighton beach.

After avoiding a handshake gone awry, it seems the Indian YouTuber was a bit unprepared to host PewDiePie, saying: “So, the thing is: I never thought this would happen, so I do not have anything in mind.”

PewDiePie immediately interjected, saying “I’m only here for the snacks,” referring to the swarm of Indian victuals that Saiman had brought along on the trip.

Indian Snacks Review

While PewDiePie was munching on some Bhakarwadi, the two YouTubers created an impromptu segment called: Indian Snacks Review.


Saiman walked PewDiePie through several Indian treats including Khakra, Bhel, Jeera Soda, Soan Papdi and more.

Even though PewDiePie made his way through all of the courses, Saiman assured him that some of the more unique flavors were definitely an “acquired taste.”

Saiman Says YouTubePewDiePie tried tons of new flavors from India, but not all of them sat well with him.

Bitch Lasagna banned in India

During the height of PewDiePie’s battle with T-Series, it was revealed that the famous diss tracks Bitch Lasagna and Congratulations were made unavailable in India.

Saiman’s community knows him as a hilarious content creator, but also as a staunch PewDiePie fan. He even joked about the real reason he made the “holy pilgrimage” to Brighton, saying: “so now that Bitch Lasagna and Congratulations have been banned [in India]… I came to the U.K. to listen to it”


In asking PewDiePie what the “Indian 9-year olds” should do to listen to the hyped tracks, PewDiePie gave a warm welcome.

“They’ll have to come here,” PewDiePie said. “They’ll have to come to the beach, we’ll be here. We have snacks. Indian snacks, Indian music, [and T-series music], sure why not.”

The video closes an epic journey for Saiman to finally meet PewDiePie, and it was even more awesome they got to share in some laughs and snacks while they were at it.
