I can only speculate as to the thought process that brought the Minecraft 'Diamonds' ad into existence. A commercial about a boy taking a chunk out of a man's face isn't exactly what comes to mind when I think of a good video game ad.
That's exactly why the Minecraft 'Diamonds' ad is so brilliant. I had no desire to try the ultra-popular gathering game until I saw this commercial. You may not even know what Minecraft is, but I guarantee you'll want to play it after seeing this commercial.
