People across the world have been complaining about the message printing unprompted.

We're told it was launched from a $5/month Google cloud server. The Giraffe added: "I used a tool I found called PRET (find it on github) which allowed me to connect to these printers, print my PDF, change the display to HACKED, and then quit… Wrapped everything in a script that loops through the list I downloaded off shodan, and TADA, a worldwide printer epidemic."

Some of PewDiePie's millions of followers have taken the task seriously and are flooding whatever and whoever they can in an effort to get them to subscribe to his YouTube channel, seemingly unaware that most of the world couldn't care less.

Millennials are such embarrassing failures.
