Work warning: There's not much in this video that's overtly sexual, but some adult themes are discussed.
We first looked at Boombox a few years ago. That actually kind of blows my mind; has it really been two years? It's amazing how time flies, whether you're having fun or just enjoying some boiled goose.
This machinima admittedly slipped my mind until it was suggested by reader Frank. It was a good reminder, though; the Lonely Island is a funny group, and I do love their music. Somehow, dressing up the band as Draenei seems to hit the tone just right. While Boombox is an old video, it's still a fun trip down memory lane.

Warning: This video is Not Safe For Work. It's got cursing. In fact, it has cursing about every 5 to 15 seconds. Lots of cursing here. If you click play, please do not be surprised by cursing. They use naughty words. If this offends you, don't watch this movie. We've got plenty of other content for you today.
I generally try and keep videos featured on Moviewatch to a reasonable level of "acceptable in any venue." People watch these movies at work, around kids, and in front of their aging grandmothers. Today's video, however, has a very high level of cursing in it. Why would I feature this parody video, titled I'm on a Mount?
Because it's freaking awesome. Granted, I'm a pretty big Lonely Island fan anyway, and generally enjoy their stuff. But Nooglide has managed to do more than just make a filk-version of I'm on a Boat (also NSFW). I feel the creator has truly captured the feel, spirit, and general tone of the original video. If the Lonely Island guys had been writing this song about WoW, this is probably the song they would have written.
Nooglide is, granted, probably not the first person to create a I'm on a Mount video, but this version's animation also is similar to the absurdist approach of Lonely Island's original piece. The surprise Murloc attack, also, was incredibly funny.
I'm totally going to have this stuck in my head all day.
