Looking for a lost Power Miners video

This popped into my head randomly and I realized I couldn’t find it online, or any mention of it (at least after a quick search).

Does anyone remember a series of goofy videos on the Power Miners site where there was a news reporter covering Rock Monster sightings? It wasn’t done with Lego bricks - they were filming an actual person, and the “Monsters” were people wearing hilariously enormous costumes fumbling around the place.

The (brief) series ended with a pseudo-interview-documentary-like segment where the reporter talked about his experiences befriending one of the monsters and playing tennis with it.

After a quick Google I can find no mention of it online, let alone a link. Does anyone know where I can find more about this, or at least remember it too? It was kind of like a social media campaign before those were really a big thing, and it’s not something I remember Lego doing with many of their other lines. It was really weird, and it would be a shame if it were lost entirely.


I remember those videos, in edition to the tennis one I distinctly remember one with dirt bikes. There might have been a basketball one as well? Also sorry I have no ideas as to where to look.

What was the name of the site? Maybe you can find it using the wayback machine

the series was called “monster see, monster do” I’m pretty sure I saw it on youtube once, but I can’t remember what channel the videos were on.

EDIT: the series was actually called “a day in the life”, and the whole thing has been uploaded by a channel called “sparkythesecond”

here’s the whole series: (which I’ve compiled into a playlist for your convenience)


I remember these. Specifically that one with Glaciator on the trampoline, I watched that one loads.

Oh, I also remember watching those on LEGO.com back in the day. I am very glad they have been found, and we can still watch them today.

I remember laughing a lot at the part where the rock monster mascot was jumping on a trampoline or something, Nolstalgia. They just don’t give the same creativity off with other themes these days.

I didn’t even know I had this memory.
