If you needed further proof of the impact of Minecraft on pop culture, look no further. YouTube released a commercial for a promotion they are running called The YouTube Collection. The YouTube Collection is obviously an April Fools Day gag, claiming you can order the entire YouTube collection on DVD. They then will immediately dispatch 175 trucks filled of DVDs to your house. YouTube is currently so popular that 60 hours of video are uploaded every minute and over 3 billion hours of video are watched monthly. (YouTube Statistics)

Whether you think it’s funny or not, take a look at 1 minutes 22 seconds on the video where they give a nod to the popularity of the indie sandbox game developed by Mojang. As you can see they are unloading a skid of boxes labeled “Minecraft Videos”. The Minecraft YouTube community is notorious for the amount of Minecraft videos that are released on a daily basis from machinima dance videos to Let’s Play, and that obviously isn’t lost over at the Google headquarters.

Keep watching as Minecraft continues to evolve and become a mainstay in internet cyberculture.
