Minecraft is a sprawling game with a huge, enthusiastic fanbase. But to outsiders like Conan O'Brien, the cubist adventure can look a little juvenile... which is probably why he imagined the Minecraft team celebrating their $2.5 billion deal with Microsoft like this.

While Conan shows the Minecraft leader in high spirits, the real-life version is probably a bit more subdued; although most of the studio staff at Mojang (the company behind Minecraft) are staying on the team, Mojang's founders decided to leave. And yes, the departure comes with a gigantic payout, but it's likely more of a bittersweet time right now than the pixelated strippers might indicate.
