My response to The Pink Pigtail article:Obviously, a 40 year old European isn't likely to find the humor in Mr. T. Or Chuck Norris. Or any of the other people that Americans can both enjoy and make the butt of every joke. I honestly don't have any idea how, even being an over 40 year old European, you don't know who Mr. T is considering he was a big star 20-30 years ago.In game, anyone that complains about the grenades, takes the game too seriously and doesn't have a clue about Blizzard's modus operandi.But actually complaining about the advertising because you (obviously not even being the demographic it was targeted too) doesn't "get" it? Absurd.So no, nothing "went wrong with the new marketing video for WoW." If Mr. T wasn't funny or people didn't connect with him, I wonder why, when the ORIGINAL Mr. T promoting WoW commercial came out, EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHERS were laughing about "Night Elf Mohawks." Some people don't take the game, or it's advertising, too seriously and appreciate and laugh at the commercial. There probably is "better ways to capture and communicate the soul of WoW." However, Mr. T DOESN'T fail at doing it, miserably. Maybe he fails, for you, miserably. Maybe he even fails for all of Europe, miserably. In America, people are laughing about it.You missed the joke. Move on.
