WoW Moviewatch: Mama Said Freeze You Out

I don't think it's any secret than I'm a child of the '80s. OK, technically, a child of the '70s. But my formative years of music preference were filled with plenty of LL Cool J. It's no surprise that Nananea's Mama Said Freeze You Out is a favorite of mine. Listening to the song is like sinking into a warm, fluffy blanket of my teenage music, just with Nananea instead of LL Cool J.

Of course, even better than just a parody of the original song, Mama Said Freeze You Out is one of those rare, rare videos in which the Alliance PvPs the ever-loving snot out of the Horde. You don't get a lot of that. Most of the "I'm so awesome, Imma blow up your dog with my mad epic daggers" videos tend to be Horde-flavored. I guess that makes sense, since there was a time when the Horde racials were vastly superior for PvP, but it still makes treats like this video that much more delicious.

WoW Moviewatch: Mama Said Freeze You Out

I wasn't sure about Mama Said Freeze You Out at first. During the first ten to twenty seconds, I kind of gave it that "turn my head sideways and look at it from the corner of my eye" glare of uncertainty. I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. I'm a huge fan of Nananea's other work, so I stuck it out. And then, like the sun cresting the horizon to create a beautiful dawn, Mama Said Freeze You Out blossomed into something incredible.

There's a new joke every few seconds in this video, and the lyrics do more than just parody LL Cool J's original verse. Nananea took the time to drop some unexpected humor into the words, and even performs some subtle critiques of the PVP game. For all that one might wish for a more skillful lyricist (or "flow," I have been told the hip, new kids call it), I think this performance nailed a wonderful line of parody and criticism.

Also, this video has forced me to realize the original Mama Said Knock You Out is 20 years old. My god.
