YouTube sensation Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg was blown away after Japan’s governor of Gunma invited his dogs, Maya and Edgar, to help promote tourism in the area.

PewDiePie has been loving life in Japan lately. The Swedish YouTuber had only recently been able to move there after trying since 2019 and it looks like he’s not the only one loving his new home.

In his latest video, Kjellberg revealed that his dogs received an invitation from the Governor of Gumma to visit the sites.

The video, which is listed by PewDiePie as an advertisement, begins with the Swede calling his dogs into the room to read them a letter allegedly sent by Japanese politician Ichita Yamamoto.

“We would like to invite you to a trip to Gunma Prefecture. Gunma Prefecture is a beautiful place with many hot springs, delicious vegetables and beautiful nature,” he read. “Please bring your family, PewDiePie and Marzia.”

Throughout the nearly 20-minute video, Pewds visited many places in the area, including places to dine, relax and sights to see. That said, he clarified that Gunma sponsored the trip.

“Gunma sponsored this trip, so you need to get to Gunma right away. Book your tickets for Gunma. Go to Gunma,” he repeated.

Overall, the video played out similar to his standard vlog videos, but it’s quite interesting to see how Japanese politicians are trying to use PewDiePie’s dogs to help promote tourism. It remains to be seen whether this has an effect or not.
