WoW Moviewatch: Mama Said Freeze You Out

I wasn't sure about Mama Said Freeze You Out at first. During the first ten to twenty seconds, I kind of gave it that "turn my head sideways and look at it from the corner of my eye" glare of uncertainty. I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. I'm a huge fan of Nananea's other work, so I stuck it out. And then, like the sun cresting the horizon to create a beautiful dawn, Mama Said Freeze You Out blossomed into something incredible.

There's a new joke every few seconds in this video, and the lyrics do more than just parody LL Cool J's original verse. Nananea took the time to drop some unexpected humor into the words, and even performs some subtle critiques of the PVP game. For all that one might wish for a more skillful lyricist (or "flow," I have been told the hip, new kids call it), I think this performance nailed a wonderful line of parody and criticism.

Also, this video has forced me to realize the original Mama Said Knock You Out is 20 years old. My god.
