WoW Moviewatch: Taken over!

Yes folks, Adam has taken over Moviewatch for the week -- or rather, Adam or whoever he um, "convinces" to write it for him. You see, Mike Gray is away on paternity leave for a bit, celebrating a bundle of joy that was born to him and his wife last week. So you're stuck with me for a bit!

And for today, we'll feature one of my favorite pieces of WoW machinima, Boom de Yada WoW-style by Irdeen and pals. One of the main reasons I like this piece so much is that it's accessible to a wide audience. You don't need to get every reference in it to appreciate it, but if you do, all the better. That makes it approachable for everyone from the WoW newbie to veteran, old-school Naxx raider.

WoW Moviewatch: Boom De Yada

It's nearly the one-year anniversary of one of the team's favorite videos: Boom De Yada. I was reminded of this video when sharing it with my young nephew. Sure, he's way too young to get any of the references, but the video is fun, the music is great, and we both loved it.

There's a part of me that hopes Irdeen updates this for Cataclysm. However, there's another part of me that realize the original hit the zeitgeist and funny spot with such perfect accuracy that it might be impossible to follow up successfully. At any rate, the World of Warcraft and Boom De Yada is still just awesome.

WoW Moviewatch: Boom De Yada WoW

There's something we joke about in the super secret WoW blogger headquarters called the "BLIND timer." If we haven't posted a Moviewatch about The Craft of War: BLIND within every three to four months, we start getting tips and suggestions about the hot new movie featuring a blood elf rogue. That's the BLIND timer. It's a fairly natural phenomenon since WoW is constantly attracting new players, and someone brand new to the scene can't be expected to know every machinima that's happened in the past. Those new folks should get to enjoy the machinima that's come before, just like us old fogeys.

It seems that Boom De Yada WoW by Irdeen is likely to also be on the BLIND timer. I've received over two dozen tips about Boom De Yada WoW in the last week, which usually means there's an influx of folks out there who haven't seen it before. And if you're already familiar with Irdeen's masterpiece, why not take a moment and enjoy it again? It's just as awesome now as it was when it came out.

WoW Moviewatch: Boomdeyada WoW

Irdeen Productions created Boomdyada for the Blizzard Rise to Power contest. While the contest version of the movie is a little different, this final machinima is the one that Irdeen released to the world. The song and video is obviously inspired by the Discovery.com The World is Just Awesome series.

This video is just awesome. I don't have the words for how happy it makes me. In the same way that Discovery.com's original advertisements somehow instills a sense of awe and wonder in the audience, Irdeen has done exactly the same thing for Azeroth. Featuring dozens of cameos and landscapes, Irdeen has managed to convey excitement and appreciation for everything World of Warcraft. (For those with a sharp eye and ear, that is in fact an Oxhorn cameo also.) The voice actors include such well known machinima stars as Jesse Cox and Matt Geenburg.

Irdeen Productions should absolutely be proud of this video. It's got to become a favorite of many WoW fans, and I hope we see more like it when Cataclysm comes around.
