This ad is hilarious. Like the others.
But, of course, a complete understanding of all its fun requires knowledge of what makes Alexandre Astier famous in France.
I, as a french, know these people and what they do/did, so I can appreciate (and I do) the previous WoW ads.
A person who'd see a heap of vulgar black muscles, not THE Mr. T, would "meh" and go away. Seeing a random old man swearing about his satanic mental illness is not interesting.
But it's Ozzy talking, big difference.
This one is about a french actor. So lots of people won't know him. That's sad because he's really good. But the ad matches perfectly the others. Plus, his personal style is all about a "fun/serious" paradox.
If people don't get the fun of it, THEY are to "blame".
I don't know these german dudes, my conclusion is = I lack german music culture. Not = this ad is shit. That would somehow be, hm ... pretentious blindness ;)
Oct 6th 2008 10:19AM Cool video as ever. But what if we had hunter's columns speaking of class mechanics, news, buffs & nerfs ?
According to you, hunters in wotlk are going to have fancy pets. They're beautiful. And it seems like, with fancy pets, devs can do whatever they want on our talents trees and spells. We stay focused on the shiny pets. Ooooh, it purred at me, how cute.
I could play pokemons with my hunter already. I'm not worried about that. I'm worried about survival being assraped, and mana issues, and that "useless" new spell, and how changes are coherent or not, and how hunters will compete in arenas, and how the spec changes will make us wanted in raids or not, and how "utility" classes have their dps boosted and so how "dps" classes may have upped utilities, and will hunters compete, while their traps are quite useless in raids, and how stuff will be sooo cool then, or will it be made for shamans and hunters are screwed ... All these things, topics, and chitchat when an Xpac is about to launch with massive changes.
And pets, too, don't get me wrong. I did play pokemons, I did love my shiny pets. And I'll do more as possibilities have expanded. And I'm glad, for examples, to see that gorillas are quite shiny AND useful.
But hopefully, any given pet is here to support its master, the hunter himself. The dude supposed to shoot arrows and lay traps and do big damages while mashing his macro, then /taunt at the casters.
So what about that hunter dude ? Is he well ? We only hear about his pets nowadays.
I'd rather have these "weekly trends on pets" articles when the game is out and we can effectively go and tame a new one every time you promote it on video.
