I'm not generally a fan of texture packs, but this I make an exception for.

That guy seems to like Matt Damon.

I like how his voice is so calm and dispossessed. Matt Damon's everywhere and he stays just as cool as a cucumber. It's like a video game review by Hannibal Lecter.

Matt Damon is going to be making a run at a congressional or a gubernatorial seat in a few years, as early as 2014. He's a very intelligent and informed kind of guy, and runs roughshod over conservatives who try to ambush him with political "gotcha" questions, so the play is to make him a mockery, to pass him off as a has-been actor only worthwhile as kitsch. Expect to see a fuckton more of this in the next few years.

There is something I'm missing right? Like a thing Matt Damon has done or said that makes this ironic somehow right?

Between this and mylittledamon, I can't tell how far-fetched Slap*Happy's comment is. I mean, there's absolutely no joke in either of those, at least none I can see. And Damon did seem like a candidate in that video about teachers. I'm confused.

When I saw the title for this post, I thought, "Haha, some joker has replaced all the textures in a Minecraft texture pack with pictures of Matt Damon."

Then I clicked and saw that he'd only replaced some of the textures with Matt Damon, and for the first time in my life I thought, "Hmph. Not enough Matt Damon."

I'm not even particularly that big of a Matt Damon fan -- think he's a fine actor, wouldn't kick him out of bed, would probably vote for him too, but he's not someone whose movies I seek out and I don't metaphorically have pictures of him hung up in my locker Tiger Beat.

So can somebody explain why this -- after months (years?) of people whose opinions respect recommending Minecraft -- is this what might finally get me to try it? Because I'm stumped.

Yeah, that video smackdown is really fun to watch. If he runs for office, I'll be opening up my wallet to donate to his campaign day one.

Political backstabbing in the form of nonsensical Minecraft textures and My Little Pony-themed Photoshop jobs? Now this is change I can believe in!

I have no idea how these people got their Matt Damons wedged into their scanners, or why.

I'm... not sure why people are trying to analyse this. It's a joke, guys. It's just someone being silly. The concept is "wouldn't it be funny if someone were so obsessed with Matt Damon that they made a horrible, creepy texture pack for Minecraft and then narrated it in a deadpan-but-subtly-over-the-top manner on YouTube."

I thought there was going to be some sort of grand finale where a Ben Affleck creeper comes up at the end and kills him. Instead it just seems to be a guy who really likes Matt Damon.

Rule 2371: If you can imagine it, someone has done it in Minecraft.
Rule 2372: If you can imagine it, Notch has broken it in Minecraft.

Oh, isn't he dreamy? Why hasn't someone made a full-on mod, changing not just textures but sounds as well? Maybe... maybe change the End and the Nether, too? I would sure use it. I'd use it like nobody's business. Gosh. So... dreamy.

Uggggh. Customized for creeps by sarcastic folk, one block at a time

Are you sure? I'm not sure. It gets harder by the day to tell what is humour and what is something else. OTOH, it is damn fascinating.

As "out-there" WTF humour it's pretty good. As a mod, kind of meh. He really blew a chance at greatness with the way he handled the moon and the pumpkins/jack-o-lanterns IMO.

Oh, come on now – you can't tell Matt Damon is going to run for political office just because he's got a Minecraft texture pack themed after him. I would say you should wait on such predictions until somebody makes a Good Will Hunting Skyrim mod.

Damon proved, in The Adjustment Bureau at least, that he would be an excellent (i.e., telegenic) candidate. But he also seems too smart to take such a big cut both in salary and status to go from movie star to public office.

That's what Ben Affleck's for! And he does seem to be talked about a lot as a possible future candidate.

1. Swap ‘FUS RO DAH’ for ‘how do you like THEM apples?’
2. Swap ‘I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee’ with ‘Sorry, I got to go see about a girl’

And also, this is obviously a joke (even right at the beginning, the map pack file thingy says underneath 'We got MATT DAMON in here!', an obvious reference to the faux-feud between him and Jimmy Kimmel).

Wait wait wait. We are going to see Republicans rejecting has-been actors as political candidates?
