Lady Gaga uses Minecraft to revive Michael Jackson in new music video

Sandbox game makes appearance in music video alongside YouTube personality "SkyDoesMinecraft".

Sandbox game Minecraft has been referenced in the latest music video to be released by music artist Lady Gaga.

The game is a featured in a scene at the 5:20 mark of music video "G.U.Y.". In the scene, YouTube personality Adam "SkyDoesMinecraft" Dahlberg types "/gamemode ARTPOP" into a game that bears visual similarities to Minecraft. Like the name suggests, the "/gamemode" command is usually used to switch between different game modes in Minecraft.

Following this scene several figures rise from coffins, one of them bearing the likeness of Michael Jackson.

Minecraft recently surpassed 100 million registered users, which included 14.3 million sales of the PC version. Developer Mojang made $326 million in revenue last year, raking in $128 million in profit. Minecraft has been released for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Versions of the game are also in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita, but there's no word yet on a potential Wii U or 3DS version.

I don't see why this is news. Eminem used Mario, Tetris and Portal in his music video for "Rap God" but I don't remember there being any article about that when it came out...

Can't believe that Minecraft actually came out in 2009 but wasn't officialy released until 2011.

Marketing for 12 year old boys. MineCraft is probably the best way to pander to that demographic.

@liakos1910  You know that girl would even strip in front of toddlers playing Lego City on the WiiU.

@Korvus85I only listened to Lady Gaga songs to hear the original versions of all the fun misheard lyrics versions. Like "P-p-p-pokerface" becoming "f-f-f-f*** her face" and "she's got to love nobody" becoming "she's got a lemon body". It's more fun when you know the original text.

@guardianofhonor  He was one of the greatest pop stars ever. Even if he was properly weird in real life, particularly in the later years.
