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.
