5 ways to explain we're not playing Kung Fu Panda

5 ways to explain we're not playing Kung Fu Panda
I think we've all settled into deep, personal relationships with Mists of Pandaria at this point. I know I love sitting up late at night, staring soulfully into its joyful, brew-laden eyes. I can't be the only one. It's like kismet or something.

But not everyone gets our love. They look at Mists of Pandaria and mistake it for a video game version of Kung Fu Panda. There's a better way to handle that miscommunication than making myself bald when I yank my hair out, screaming, "No. it. is. not!"

So in the interest of propogating better understanding between Mists of Pandaria lovers and those who confuse it for Jack Black's latest endeavor, here's 5 ways to explain that we're not playing the Kung Fu Panda MMO.

WoW Moviewatch: Kung Fu Pandaren

The Pandaren pet was a huge hit, so I guess this parody video was somewhat inevitable. However, PixelatedPixels definitely knocked this WoW remake of Kung Fu Panda out of the park. Obviously, the soundtrack is mostly from Kung Fu Panda, but there's a subtle twist at the end that makes Kung Fu Pandaren pure WoW.

The animation and graphics work in Kung Fu Pandaren were absolutely amazing. The creator was able to make great use of the Pandaren's extant emotes to really fill out this video. I loved the video as it is, but the animation is so good that I hope the creators go on to create a new, original story for the Kung Fu Pandaren.

Tenacious D discovered Northrend first

For what ever reason I found myself looking at some Tenacious D stuff the other day, and came across the Wonderboy video (you'll have to visit YouTube as we can't embed the video due to copyright restrictions). Wonderboy is a great little song, completely safe for work and young bucks (however pretty much everything else that comes out of Jack Black's mouth is not).

In the video they are going on "The Quest" for truth. And where does this quest take them? None other then high above the mucky muck. This mountain region has a surprising look and feel to it.

That's right. The D discovered Northrend, before any of us.

But wait, there's more.

There's even powers that The D posses which are featured in Northrend.

What powers are those, you ask?
