We have done a post on Mr. Stampy Cat – about the success of a Minecraft Youtuber whose YouTube channel is getting millions of views. Let’s just say that this post is a follow-up post, as we’ll watch an interview of two friends who happen to be having the same hobby-slash-job of playing Minecraft and sharing their Minecraft activities to Minecraft fans.
Both represent 1.5 billion YouTube hits. Wow.
Just in case you have no idea what Minecraft is, it’s a sandbox game that allows you to build virtually anything using building blocks. There is no story or mission to follow: You create your own story, and the only limit is your creativity.
The interview is pretty interesting as you can take a deeper look at how they started and what makes them so popular among kids – and celebs, too (Joseph Garrett a.k.a. Mr. Stampy Cat will collaborate with Jack Black.)
Stampy’s career is taking off – he’s moving to Los Angeles, USA and will do a show with Jack Black and launch entertainment/educational projects.
So yes, playing a game, record it and do commentaries on it can take you to Hollywood. A wonderful success story of a Youtuber, indeed.
What do you think of Stampy, Squid and Minecraft?
