WoW Moviewatch: Illegal Danish Super Snacks

We're continuing the Staff Picks series of WoW Moviewatch with a special selection by Kristin. Not only is Illegal Danish Super Snacks by Myndflame one of the earliest legends of machinima, it remains to this day one of our favorite videos.

The Danish video, as nobody calls it, is unique in a few ways. First, it's blend of comedy and story make it interesting to follow and a laugh to watch. Second, it spawned a whole series of jokes and references that flourished through the years of WoW. While some of the jokes might not make sense to newer players, those of us in the nostalgia circuit will thrill to hear those dreadful words... "Arcanite Reaper, hooooo!"

WoW Moviewatch: Best of Kiljoy. "Arcanite Reaper Hooooo!"

My first machinima experience was in 2006. I was travelling to train a vendor company's evening shift on how to do a new job. Note that I said evening shift; during the days, I sat around in a hotel room staring at the walls. I tried to play WoW, but the internet connection was spottier than a dalmation. So, instead, I cruised the internet for WoW related stuff, and encountered my first machinima movie: Illegal Danish. It was clearly a memorable experience for me, and it introduced me to the wonderful, creative world of machinima.

My favorite scene of it, though, was when Kiljoy leapt from the ground, and screamed "Arcanite Reaper Hooooo!" That's why Myndflame's new short, Best of Kiljoy. Arcanite Reaper Hoooo!, is so darn funny to me. For months, every time my little warrior would use his crafted reaper, I'd shout out that eponymous phrase. It was awesome.

Myndflame has also released Illegal Danish: Super Snacks on their YouTube channel. It's been four years since Illegal Danish hit the scene, so it's an awesome to revisit those favorite memories.

15 Minutes of Fame: Clint Hackleman of Myndflame machinima

15 Minutes of Fame is's look at World of Warcraft players of all shapes and sizes -- from the renowned to the relatively anonymous, the remarkable to the player next door. Tip us off to players you'd like to hear more about.

The subject of this week's 15 Minutes of Fame has actually carved out many, many more than a mere 15 minutes on his own. Clint Hackleman is known to WoW fans as the force behind Myndflame, the team responsible for such wildly popular machinima as Illegal Danish: Super Snacks, Learn 2 Play and Epic Flight Form.

So who's a Myndflame fan? Blizzard, for starters. "How can something so familiar feel so foreign?" Blizzard asks rhetorically in a news update on its main site about the Illegal Danish III Prelude. "... If you're a World of Warcraft player who feels something is missing from the StarCraft universe, the creators of the Illegal Danish series have sensed your internal disturbance, bringing you a hilariously off-kilter redux of the StarCraft II cinematic trailer, now with 100% more Gnome action. It's about time!"

We thought it was about time, too, to go behind the scenes with Hackleman and get the story behind Myndflame's blazing success.

WoW Moviewatch: Illegal Danish - Escape from Orgrimmar

Illegal Danish: Escape from Orgrimmar
(Given how anticipated the release of Illegal Danish: Escape from Orgrimmar was, we decided to bump up the notification and review. WoW Moviewatch will resume it's normal posting schedule tomorrow.)

One of the longest running jokes in Machinima history finally came to a close today with the release of the long-awaited sequel to Illegal Danish: Super Snacks. Illegal Danish: Escape from Orgrimmar was originally announced right after the premiere of IDSS, with a scheduled release date about 6 months later. However, it had been pushed back for over a year, leading many to compare it to Duke Nukem Forever, which, coincidentally, debuted a brand new trailer several weeks ago.

Around the same time that 3D Realms was releasing their DNF trailer, Myndflame made an announcement that IDEFO had a scheduled release date of December 31st, at 6pm EST. It would coincide with a real life wrap party to ring in the New Year. However, fans flooded the site, literally and figuratively. Not only were 75,000 people trying to access the site, but someone was also attacking it at the same time. Given the holiday, it would take some time to fix, thus not appearing until 2008.
