The Internet may sometimes act in the strangest ways and the YouTube personality CaptainSparklez agrees. A music video parody done by Jordan Maron AKA CaptainSparklez is proving to be the newest viral sensation in Minecraft gaming.
The parody titled “Revenge” is based on the hit R&B singer Usher’s “DJ’s Got Us Falling In Love Again.” The parody was initially released in 2011 and gained some attention. This is CaptainSparklez second parody with a Minecraft music video, the former being “TNT.”
Since 2011 until July 2019, the parody video may have accumulated a little over a million views. However, with a certain level of a resurgence of Minecraft gameplay on YouTube, this “Revenge” parody took the wind. In the last week or so, the music video has gained over 100 million views on YouTube and has become an Internet meme.
The song, performed by another YouTube personality TryHardNinja, kicks off with “Creeper, aw man” which has gone viral as a catchphrase and become a hot selling merchandise brand. CaptainSparklez performs a rap verse on this track
CaptainSparklez himself revealed that he never saw this viral sensation coming, especially for a video that has been ageing on his gaming channel for over 8 years. He also revealed that “Creeper, aw man” merchandise has sold more than any of his previous brands before. You can check out this merch on Represent.

Here is CaptainSparklez explaining the inspiration and meaning behind his massive hit. How the song is based on his personal life experience is just baffling.
