Notch Persson Livens Up Ferguson's Late Late Show

Notch Persson Livens Up Ferguson's Late Late Show

Welcome to the world of old-style entertainment. Don't mind the plastic skeleton; he's friendly.

"Are America's ways so different from yours?" asks Craig Ferguson, the Late Late Show host who fled Scotland in 1983, and so Notch Persson of Minecraft happily descends into the madness that is American late night television. It might not be Persson's first time in the States, but it is his first late night show appearance, and he handles it like a seasoned pro. Though perhaps he'd really rather be a janitor, if he could get paid in chocolate euros.

God knows there's no stopping Persson's Minecraft; it's the crack cocaine of the PC world, and rumor has it Minecraft hasn't been doing too badly on the Xbox either. At least Notch's employees haven't been left out in the cold. "Every single Mojangsta is a massive part of the reason Mojang is the best place on earth to work at right now," said Notch as he gave out $3 million earlier this year.

Damn. Now I want a chocolate. Maybe there's something in the fridge ...

I just hope they sorted that fire out, would be a shame if it all burned down :D

I rather like the host. Really has that... old school vibe going on.

Craig Fegruson is the last great Scottish hope of American late night television.

Cool stuff. I personally think Craig Ferguson is easily the best late show host of them all because he's so relaxed and the unscripted nature of his show, so it's awesome to see Notch on there.

It was entertaining and the Scottish guy is a good host, but all it really did was illustrate just how out of touch American T.V is with other mediums.

He is the only good thing that has ever come out of Scotland. Really, all it said to me is that American T.V has no idea what is happening anywhere else in any other media.

Good for Notch. By all appearances he seems like an ok guy so, good for him.

Sean COnnery and Ewan McGregor might want a word.

The corners of the internet where gamers live was described as "a very bitchy world".

Very accurate.

Notch handled himself well.

One of the best game devs on the best Late Show. Craig Ferguson is awesome.

I don't suppose it was you who asked for them to host notch as a guest? (I don't care how overused/outdated that joke is, I still like it.)

I'm sure someone called he fire department. I cant imagine the guy who chatted with Craig would be the only janitor,

Also, Franz Ferdinand are a good band. Oh, and Scotland gives us actors like Gerald Butler, James McAvoy, Karen Gillan, Robert Carlyle and most importantly Denis Lawson (because Wedge Antilles rules). Not to mention all that delicious whiskey. In fact, Scotland has been pretty good to the rest of us.
