The story behind the Minecraft Diamonds ad.

First of all, [1] here's the ad on YouTube.
When I was at Machinima's place to do the livestream, the guys from CorridorDigital showed me a rough cut of their excellent short movie [2] The Last Minecart. I loved it and thought it was the greatest thing ever, and I couldn't wait for the final version to hit the intertubes! When I got into the office, I checked reddit, and saw that not only was that video online, there was ANOTHER Minecraft short available as well, and it was in the form of a 30 second ad, complete with a twist powerful enough to confuse M. Night Showercurtain, and a huge fat plug including the url to the game at the end.
That was the first time I heard about it. On reddit.
We hadn't seen any emails about it, we hadn't contacted anyone about making an ad, and I certainly wasn't expecting it. It all kinda overwhelmed and stunned me, so I didn't investigate it further, but today I got an email from the agent of the guy acting in it, [3] Mike Kwao, saying that he had really liked doing the short. That caused me to search my inbox for other emails, and it turns out that the guy who made the ad sent me an email in December with a rough cut, but I totally missed it because it was a fairly anonymous email. What's even better, [4] he's made two short movies before! Being a bit of a film nerd, and really loving his style in Diamonds, I'm trying to figure out if there's a legal way for me to watch them. - Notch:

The Sky Nets plan to take over the world

The Sky Nets plan to take over the world  

Stage One:
To begin your plan, first Kidnap a Military General. This will cause the world to sit up and take notice, stunned by your arrival. Who is this Evil Genius? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good in a Robotic Exoskeleton?

Stage Two:
Next, Destroy the Internet. This will cause countless hordes of Robot Warriors to flock to you, begging to do your every bidding. My name will become synonymous with Nightmares, as lesser men whisper your name in terror.

Stage Three:
Finally, you will Activate your Thermonuclear Missiles, bringing about the Apocalypse. This will all be done from a Air Fortress. These three deeds will herald the end, and the citizens of this planet will have no choice but to elect you their new overlord.

Trust me, it'll all come together in the end.

thank you Make Your Own Evil Plan
