It might not surprise you to learn that Minecraft is pretty popular. What may be a shock, however, is that it has now amassed over a trillion views on YouTube. According to a new article published by YouTube, the video platform has confirmed that videos related to Mojang’s blocky sensation have been viewed more than a trillion times. Thanks to the game’s huge popularity, it’s taken just 12 years for videos on Minecraft to hit this particularly brain-breaking viewing record.
To celebrate this momentous milestone, YouTube has created a special music video, containing a breakdown of the Minecraft YouTube’s most prolific creators and memorable moments.
Let’s be honest – a trillion is a pretty hard number for us to parse. So, in order to make that mind-melting stat more tangible, if each of those views was just a second long, it would add up to over 30,000 years of viewing time. If you ask us, being forced to watch Minecraft videos for 30,000 years is the very definition of hell.
