WoW Moviewatch: Pandaren Style

We've seen a couple of Gangnam Style parodies on WoW Moviewatch at this point. They all had their charms but personally, I'm still holding out for a Gangnam Style parody which combines a perfect execution of lyrics, music, and machinima .... One parody to rule them all, you could say. (23 days left, by the way!) For now though, we must wait.

But in the interim, we have today's machinima, which I think is a step in the right direction. The music from the original song has gone mostly untouched, but the accompanying animation is astonishingly well-done. Who knew a pandaren could show so much expression when screaming at a girl's butt? I'm no 3D animation expert, but I'd guess this is the work of all those extra "bones" the pandaren models have. Amazing stuff.

It may also be of some interest to know that the creator of today's machinima, Animpinabox, also made the old video World of Warcraft: Dancing. If you've never seen it, World of Warcraft: Dancing features the dances of several character races and NPCs alongside the footage that may have originally inspired Blizzard developers. It's a classic machinima, so be sure to check it out if you've never seen it. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go dig out my old Alizée albums.

WoW Moviewatch: Warcraft style

Work warning: Skimpy clothing on character avatars. Nothing you can't see on mainstream TV but you know how Black Mageweave is.

You'll see a couple of these this week. It's not my fault. It's topical. It's pop culture, see. Even more importantly, though, the two videos are interesting in their own way. They both just happen to be based on Gangnam Style.

In Warcraft style, Miss Mumulawl put together a parody video using in-game graphics and lots of footage. While the audio is just the original song, I definitely appreciate the fan love put into creating this parody. It definitely looks like a lot of players had a lot of fun putting this together.

Interested in the wide world of machinima? We have new movies every weekday here on WoW Moviewatch! Have suggestions for machinima we ought to feature? Toss us an email at moviewatch@wowinsider.com.
