Numero uno YouTuber takes a dig at Motu Patlu


MUMBAI: You know who Motu Patlu are but many around the world don’t. Well, large parts of the world just got to know them thanks to the antics of the world’s number one YouTuber PewDiePie (Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg). He recently uploaded a video on his YouTube channel (also called PewDiePie) calling Motu Patlu, with sarcasm, ‘a fantasticanime’, ‘one of the greatest creations of Nickelodeon since the 90s’, ‘to its very core, just a fine animation’, and ‘the greatest thing that has ever happened’ among other things.

He starts with saying that his life “changed for the better in every single way” since he discovered Motu Patlu. He then goes on to explain the character of Motu and his addiction to the Indian fast food item samosa, which he pronounces “samocha.”

The video has received 1.24 million (about 12 lakhs) views in just 15 hours. With 57 million subscribers to the channel, the numbers are only going to increase. Any publicity, however, is seen as good publicity. Due this flippant attempt to review Motu Patlu’s antics, people may start exploring Indian animated shows, which will only serve to benefit the cartoon show and movie franchise.
