Yes, the title is a bit redundant, but this page is for Sky Does Minecraft playing Minecraft. Specifically the over 1,500 Minecraft Let’s Play videos on his channel. Sky has become the most successful Minecraft Let’s Player amassing many dedicated fans over the past 4 years. Releasing a new video everyday, each clocking in around 15 minutes, the channel has done a remarkable job keeping fans entertained. The bulk of the videos are of sky goofing around and showing off a new mod for the game, or playing mini games with friends of the show and other Youtube personalities.
The only two constants with Sky Does Minecraft is Sky using his, now famous, distinctive custom player skin in every video and Sky being goofy and having fun in every video. What draws and keeps people coming back to this channel and these Minecraft videos is the genuine fun Sky and his buddies are having in all the bizarre and unique game modes they try out. Sky is impressively consistent on the amount of energy and drive he bring to each video he posts on his channel.

Some memes you might come across with Minecraft players that come from this channel and series of videos include calling gold “budder” and a severe hatred and fear of squids.
