When indie smash hit Minecraft finally hit beta a few days ago, the game's developer, Notch, said there was a super secret rare item added to the update. The update's patch notes stated that the secret rare item was more rare than wearable cloaks that only Mojang employees could obtain, which, considering said cloaks are unobtainable by regular players, made the secret rare item pretty darn rare indeed. This, of course, sent Minecraft players into an exploration frenzy, causing them to meticulously explore the game world, as well as search through the game's texture files.
Well, it turns out the secret rare item is a player skin that only one person, musician Deadmau5, is able to obtain and is only viewable on said player's server. Notch confirmed this on Twitter, by answering this question with this response. This was confirmed again by another Mojang employee, Jens Bergensten.
