SuperMansion‘s Christmas special is in no way your classic holiday tale. 

And that makes it all the better, Keegan Michael Key, who plays The American Ranger on the Crackle animated show, told Mashable.

“You want to be able to have a different take every now again,” Key said. “It’s the hardest part of comedy. Artistically it’s fun to have the ability to say ‘oh wow I get to help facilitate this interesting twist.’ There’s something a little naughty about going ‘let’s see if we can make it as Christmas-y and as un-Christmas-y as we can at the same time.”

PewDiePie — who recently declared he will delete his YouTube channel once he reaches 50 million subscribers — is the highest paid digital star of 2016.

The Swedish gamer — whose real name is Felix Kjellberg — made an estimated $15 million for the 12 months ending in June 2016, according to Forbes recent ranking.

This is the second year the 26-year-old YouTuber has topped the list. His paycheck surged 20% from last year, when he made $12 million. 

Kjellberg’s success is innately digital. He launched his channel by making “Let’s Play” videos, which showcase a gamer playing through a video game alongside footage of that player’s narration and reactions to the game.  Read more…
