Did you know that there are remixes about your favorite YouTube Stars such as Jacksepticeye, Markipler, DanTDM, and PewDiePie?

There certainly are. YouTubers remixing about themselves with their audio and sound bytes is interesting because there typically wasn’t a musical aspect to their videos, to begin with. Many of the remixes we’ll look at are from video game streamers created with the sound bytes from specific streams.  The remixes are fantastically catchy! 

Here are some of the top YouTuber remixes to dip your toes into before we go in-depth!

Taking the giggles, cackles, chuckles, chortles, snickering, and howls, of these YouTubers, Day by Dave creates a laughing compilation remix that enhances the typical laughing track.

Be warned this one is honestly creepy; catchy but creepy. Maybe it’s the idea that some laughing tracks are old and outdated enough to be the recordings of people that are now dead. This is in theory true. However, laugh tracks began in the 1940s so many of those people could be still alive today. To further explain why that’s not likely, producers and editors tend to be constantly updating their audio files to remain relevant. There is a slim chance that anything created in this century has laughter from the previous century.

Fun Fact: Eventually this video, immortalized on the internet forever and ever, will showcase the musical laughter of the dead.

Taken from the Darkiplier vs Antisepticeye video starring AntiSepticEye, TomSKAR, TJSith Ian KNEEcox, Pamick Attack Daniel, ABlazingPhil , KillThePJ, JacksKills, DannyDarko, Logan Paulution, and SharkYoHo. All of these Youtubers showcased their evil alternatives to one another to determine who is the strongest.

Fun Fact: The competition finishes with the most powerful evil alternative identity being something entirely unexpected. Check out the original video to learn about the winner.

The original video itself is dark and eerie by design. Adding it to a remix is cleverly eerie and dark but energetic and exciting. This remix includes all of the audio and characters from the original video merely with the musical remixing of Endigo.

As one of the most popular YouTubers on the platform, Pewdiepie. As of May 2020, his YouTube channel has over 25 billion views, He ranks as the 16th-most-viewed channel on the platform. Pewdiepie remains one of the most successful and popular YouTubers, despite controversies of Fascism, Neo-Nazism, and White supremacy as you can read through several news media such as The Wall Street Journal, The Independent, The Guardian, and The Polygon.

Remixed by Party In Backyard, this remix is strong with a great energetic beat based on his audio bytes of the phrase “Floor Gang”. Floor Gang is a fun phrase to connect with viewers as he sits on the floor.

Fun Fact: Because of his popularity, views and overall media attention, he was included in the world’s 100 most influential people in 2016 by Time magazine. Due to this, his coverage of indie games has created an Oprah effect, boosting sales for titles he plays.

“What is going on?” is a remix of DanTDM created by Endigo based on the video “THAT’S MY MOM?!?! (Among the Sleep)”. Endgio brings the energy from Dan himself and of course the video content to combine it into a remix perfect for casually eerie listening or putting it on repeat for 10 hours.

In the description of the gameplay video, Dan explains, “here we go.. among the sleep.. becoming a baby, surviving the nightmares and my creepy-faced mom..”. It’s certainly worth the watch.

Fun Fact: In 2017, He topped list of Highest-Paid YouTube Stars, earning $16.5 million according to Forbes.

Jacksepticeye is a YouTube Celebrity gaining fame from his vlogs and comedic Let’s Play series. As of May 2020, his channel has over 12 billion views and over 24 million subscribers and is ranked the most-subscribed channel in Ireland. 

Here is a remix of Jacksepticeye from his Subnautica series. This video showcased just how excited he was to have the game released and having the ability to play the full and complete release instead of doing it by piece mail. Released in 2018, Subnautica is a game that focuses on survival with action, resource collection and combat making it a well-rounded game.

Fun Fact: Subnautica: Below Zero, the video game’s sequel is currently in development. It was released for early access in January 2019. Of course, Jacksepticeye did a playthrough series!

Using more of the phrases instead of single words or vocalizations, Day by Dave brings more of a rhythm to this remix. This is much more fast-paced in terms of lyrics, which makes up for the fact that it’s shorter than most remixes at only 2:03 in length.
