Fallen Kingdom is Minecraft parody of the song "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay.The song was written and produced by CaptainSparklez. Vocals are sung by friend and fellow YouTuber TryHardNinja, with audio production done by DocExxMusic. The animation is produced by CaptainSparklez and BootstrapBuckaroo, and the set was designed by FyreUK. Released on April 1st, 2012, the parody was an immediate hit with the Minecraft community.
The story in the video portrays a king on his struggle to keep his kingdom safe of the mobs of Minecraft, and the revealing title might tell the story by itself. "Fallen Kingdom" comes from the ending of the video, as the kingdom is overrun by creepers and skeletons. The king's wife is killed and their son is left to the mobs. Several disputes arise over whether the king survived or not, which CaptainSparklez wisely used to his advantage by creating a new music video.
The video has 75,097,671 views as of April 24th, and is the third - most - popular music video by CaptainSparklez. The sequel to the video, "Take Back the Night" (a collaborative project by CaptainSparklez, Slamacow, and TryHardNinja) currently has 43,000,000 views.
