My 15 year old son is a huge Minecraft fan, and loves both watching and curating creative Minecraft videos on YouTube. Periodically he shares some with me, and this evening we watched “‘We Are The Miners’ – A Minecraft Parody of Queen’s We Are The Champions (Music Video)”. As a long-time fan of Queen, I really enjoyed the clever lyrics as well as the enhanced Minecraft animations. If you’ve got a Minecraft fan in your house or classroom, consider sharing this video with them and discussing the kinds of creativity it took to make it.
