I can see a pattern emerging here, where Activision digs up pop culture has-beens with cash flow problems (In the U.S.: JCVD, Mr. T, Shatner), and puts them in WoW commercials. The Fantastic Four had their heyday in the early 90's, and pretty much vanished from the radar since.
The only guy I didn't know was that stand up comic from the spanish WoW commercial, but judging by the other clips, he's probably way past his prime as well.
Oct 14th 2008 1:11PM There might be some truth to the rumor after all, that Blizz is rushing the expansion a bit.
Aug 26th 2008 3:45PM @ Nadril: I humbly disagree. Yesterday my PoM turned 30 and to celebrate, I went on a tour of all the places I could reach without dying. While crossing the Lacheish Plains, I had this moment where I stopped and looked around. There were no other players around, deer were grazing in the distance and everything was quiet. I really felt like being back in the Stone Age. This game is incredibly immersive, even in the areas that are not so obviously omgz pretty.

Nov 21st 2006 2:55PM Ironforge Airport and the Wetlands farm are also still accessible, but the entry point has been moved. If you exit Dun Morogh into Loch Modan, go up the ravine on the left side of the exit, right behind a big tree. See the detailed writeup at http://www.wowwiki.com/Ironforge_Airport.
Aug 4th 2006 8:57AM I recently did the final Disks quest on my alliance toon and got almost 15k experience from the very easy followup quest chain, where you just go to Tanaris and talk to the golem near Uldum. Instances are not a waste of time at all if you do them right i.e. pick up all the quests before and focus on getting them done.
Apr 12th 2006 8:56AM My first character was a Tauren warrior, which I leveled to about 5 before I switched to a NE druid which I got to 7. I didn't like Mulgore and I didn't like Teldrassil very much, so I made a female undead warlock and discovered how much fun a warlock can be and how cool the undead starting areas are (I jumped for joy when I saw my first abomination :) This one I leveled all the way to 60 and never regretted my choice of race or class.
Mar 31st 2006 9:31AM Soloing Lord Roccor in BRD last night for my druid trinket and succeeding on the first try. Though the satisfaction kind of diminished after I did it 5 more times in a row. Did BRD get nerfed, by the way? I went there last night with a full group and everything seemed so much easier.
Mar 3rd 2006 8:53AM I've only read four of the Warcraft books, but I found the writing a little towards the pedestrian. I did like "Lord Of The Clans", if only because it gave some background information on Thrall, and how he came to be the warchief of the orcs.
The Sunwell Trilogy was so so. Too many way too detailed battle descriptions, and the characters were not really fleshed out enough.
Feb 27th 2006 8:05AM As a warlock, doing the Dreadsteed event in DM West and finally getting that mount. Or soloing the doomguard quest in the Tainted Scar. Running around in my underwear all day there to avoid repair costs /shudder
