Twitch streamer 'Knut' Spildrejorde was intrigued by the recent resurgence in Minecraft playthroughs and decided to give the game a go for himself – only to fail at the first hurdle.

Minecraft has seen a huge boost in popularity lately, partly thanks to Felix 'PewDiePie' Kjellberg's YouTube series, and Daniel 'KEEMSTAR' Keem's Minecraft Monday tournament.

Twitch streamer Knut decided he would see what all the fuss is about and tried to play the game himself on September 4, but hilariously fell short at just the first step.


Knut's Minecraft fail

Obviously the first thing you do when you think about playing a game is actually installing it – in Knut's case, however, this is where he went wrong.

Instead of Google searching the game to find the download page, the streamer simply typed in 'Minecraft.com' in hopes that it would bring it up. "I have to download Minecraft," he stated while waiting for the web page to load.

In a hilarious turn of events, the URL turned out to be a website for a mining company, and not the Microsoft sandbox he'd anticipated.

"The fuck?!" the bodybuilder laughed upon noticing his hilarious mistake. "Jesus Christ, what's this?!"

After laughing at himself, the Norwegian streamer backtracked to Google to find the real webpage he was looking for, but even then still struggled to get the game client downloaded.

Upon logging in, Knut was kicked back to the main website homepage, where a giant 'BUY MINECRAFT' button was displayed. "BUY?!" the bodybuilder exclaimed in shock. "Why can't I just download?!"

Luckily, the site recognised that the Nord already owned the sandbox game, and let him download it without spending any more money.


Minecraft is on the rise

Many other streamers have expressed interest in playing Minecraft during their broadcasts after the whirlwind resurgence of the Microsoft title.

Turner 'Tfue' Tenney booted up the game for the first time on August 31, taking a break from Fortnite to give the sandbox title a try. 

Fellow battle royale pro Ali 'TSM Myth' Kabbani also tried his hand at it on August 28 – both of whom suffered hilarious fails that entertained their Twitch audiences.

Top streamers like Tfue and TSM Myth have moved onto Minecraft after the surge in popularity.

Although Minecraft is an older title that first released in 2011, its sudden rebirth has been a hit with both streamers, YouTube personalities, and audiences alike.

At the time of this article, the Minecraft category on Twitch has 84,000 current viewers, and over 14 million followers, proving just how popular the sandbox title still is.
