Look, I don't really like Ke$ha either. But I totally love this video, made by 11-year-old YouTube user xNoizeBeatx, which features an ingame tribute to Minecraft sung to the beat of Ke$ha's "Tik Tok."

(Note how I did not say "sung to the tune of Ke$sha's 'Tik Tok.'")

If any of its elements had been a little bit out of whack, this could have been the most unbearable video of all time. And yet… the combination of the charming, enthusiastic lyrics, the off-key singing, and the great editing totally cracks me up.

Lyrical highlights:

Dont stop
Building things
Crafting Stuff you've never seen

Tonight
Gotta Fight
Till theres no zombies in sight

and

I'm talking running for your life life
Skeletons shoot their arrows
Respawn in a little meadow

Lost all my things
But that's okay okay
Lets try and find my base
Lets try and find my base

So... yeah. Check it out. I certainly wasn't this cool when I was eleven.

(High-five to Llamar Llamatronix for the tip!)
