Mark Edward Fischbach, aka Markiplier, is one of YouTube’s most beloved content creators. His chaotic-fun Let’s Play videos and collaborations with fellow streamers like PewDiePie have garnered him a large audience. However, in a recent episode of his podcast Impaulsive, Markiplier discussed a health scare that made him reevaluate his life and content creation.

Though he affirms that he will never abandon LPs, Markiplier has slowly been branching out into other areas of video gaming and comedy. He’s played multiple games with fellow YouTubers and co-hosts of his podcast, including Jacksepticeye, EatMyDiction1, and LordMinion777. He’s also appeared in multiple challenge videos as various characters, including his pink-moustached alter ego Wilford Warfstache and evil counterpart Darkiplier.

In one of the more memorable challenge videos, he and Ethan Nestor-Darling attempted to drink ten shots of apple cider vinegar each. The two were unable to complete the challenge and ended up feeling nauseous. After a few hours, they both vomited and were forced to cut the video short.

Despite the episode’s abrupt end, the two did create another one where they attempted to drink a whole bottle of wine. This time, the video was much more successful and was a hit with viewers. Throughout this challenge, Mark and Ethan also discussed their lives and careers as well as their futures in the gaming community. The chemistry between the pair is clearly evident, and they are both passionate about their content. With over 17 billion total views and 32.7 million subscribers, it’s no wonder why they’re so popular.
