Part of what makes WoW great to me is the pop culture references. They could use the current, the hip, the happening...they can also go with what was cool a while back, simply playing off nostalgia. The commercial kind of gives me the feeling that WoW isn't some serious issue where number crunching is king or that, to be successful in the game, you have to spend hours upon hours playing it. WoW is, above all else, a game that's there to be fun and show the fun little things in the game. And the Night Elf Mohawk is there to be fun. It's nothing huge, and it's not something that will make your game experience less enjoyable. [see: zombie event. It was made for fun and it was fun, but a lot of people got upset about how the auction house would be camped by zombies.] It's just there as a little bit of flavor for the world: a shouting night elf with a mohawk lectures you on respectin' yer mamma while outfitting you with a mask to show you're good wit' the kids.Larisa doesn't particularly like the commercial. And that's fine. Lord knows I detest the Mac v. PC ads, but I still have my iPod because I loves it, and I'd still get a Macbook if money permits. Fun, like the opinion of the commercials, is subjective. People have differing opinions on the matter, and what they find fun. Kind of what makes WoW great, too. So much to do for the different playstyles. I think Blizzard knows that the commercial can be hit-or-miss for some people, and they just took the chance.In the end, though, I do agree on one thing: Blizzard totally should make commercials with Cranius. If they did so, I would love them forever. Verbally and metaphorically.
