Although Ahgren expected the timer to end after a day or two at most, the stream ran for 30 days, 7 hours, and 36 minutes, ending on April 13. Initially, Ahgren set a maximum cap of 31 days for the length of the stream (which he later reduced to 30 days).

A. Ahgren experienced what he believed to be a suspension from the platform just three days after switching from Twitch to YouTube. Kotaku reported that while Ahgren was streaming other YouTube videos, he accidentally played the famously catchy Baby Shark song. Shortly after, his stream was terminated, giving his viewers and himself the impression that he had been banned for breaking YouTube's copyright guidelines.

With around 3 million Twitch followers, Ahgren was able to break the previous record for most subscribers during his infamous subathon. Ludwig nevertheless is now a part of YouTube. Ludwig has acknowledged that YouTube made him an attractive offer, but he also assured his followers that the decision wasn't motivated by money.
