Pixelated Popstar Parodies

This Minecraft Parody Song Covers Miley Cyrus's 'Wrecking Ball'

— November 8, 2013 — Pop Culture
This Minecraft parody song covers Miley Cyrus's hit 'Wrecking Ball' in an emotional and hilarious ballad. 'Wrecking Mob' discusses the distress caused by Creepers ruining everything. The music video uploaded by CavemanFilms on YouTube is also available for download on iTunes.

The pixelated parody video is not only set to the tune of 'Wrecking Ball,' but also features several visual homages to the infamous performance, including close-up shots of a near nude character singing longingly into the camera, and green Creepers riding a wrecking ball. Many of the Minecraft parody song lyrics are specific to the 8-bit video game, including references to building and mining.

While there are numerous parodies of Miley's song, this gamer version is a must see for Minecraft players and the pop culture obsessed.
