Minecraft Style

You got your Minecraft in my Gangnam Style! No, you got your Gangnam Style in my Minecraft!

What happens when the dance meme of the moment meets the indie gaming darling of the last few years? 

This ... THIS is what happens: Humans and Creepers — made entirely of blocks — get their groove on together. And once again, you're left with that devilishly catchy South Korean tune jammed in your ear all day.

"Minecraft Style" — is brought to us by Jordan Maron (aka Captain Sparklez) with vocals by TryHardNinja (who previously gave us this "Minecraft" rap song). In its one day on YouTube, the "Gangnam Style" parody has racked up more than a million views. Which maybe says something about just how much people want to see a Creeper do a dance on a subway pole.

Or maybe it's just that the bajillions of "Minecraft" players out there can appreciate the new set of lyrics Maron and friends have given the song.

Diggin' a hole, just one more time until I score this
Strike rich on diamonds, iron, gold and build our decked out fortress
All we need is just a bit of luck to not abort this
Runnin' low we can't afford this

(If you don't LOL at the "Ay, sexy piggy" line, well then your funny bone is BROKE.)

Even "Minecraft" creator Markus Persson (aka Notch) seems to be a fan, giving the video a shoutout via Twitter.

But here, take a look at what happens at the wondrous, surreal place where the sandbox gaming hit "Minecraft" and the video sensation "Gangnam Style" converge.

It's worth noting that while this is probably the very best "Gangnam Style"/"Minecraft" mashup, it isn't the only one. This shorty below is well worth watching too.
