WoW Moviewatch: Belated pimp parody of WoW commercials

Parodies of the WoW commercials featuring William Shatner, Mr. T, Jean Claude van Damme, Verne Troyer, and Willy Toledo are so last month. Apparently Ari Rosenberg didn't get the memo. Viewers be warned that this does contain some offensive language.

It's true that you can be anyone you want to be on the internet. In Ari's world, he's a night elf pimp. I wonder if his mom knows he's slapping around his sister on YouTube?

(Edit: Ari decided to add "What's your game?" to the ending, so he re-uploaded the video.)

WoW Moviewatch: It must be love

Ian Beckman has done a wide variety of WoW machinima, whether spoofing our favorite super villains (twice), mimicking law enforcement reality shows, or rapping with the raid bosses. He also does commercial parodies from time to time, like this one based on an old Honda ad. It may be short, but it's quite adorable.

I found myself counting the number of faces I recognized from television or internet advertisements. I think one of the faces here, (number 6) might even be Lozareth, author of the "Discord Mods" addons that used to be quite popular. His site forums avatar is no longer his own picture, though, so I could be wrong on that. I'd mention more of the recognizable faces, but I don't want to take away your chance: which ones can you call out?

WoW Moviewatch: So easy a draenei can do it

This spoof of the popular GEICO cavemen commercials is simple in concept and execution, but nicely done. I'm not sure I would have picked draenei as the race to go with, considering their technological advancement... Orcs or trolls, maybe, but draenei?

Soon the Crusade is Burning
-- by Josh Refenes (aka, Ragbar)

Started out on Launch Day, Couldn't wait, install and play,
In Azeroth there's Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms too

Darnassus, Durotar, Silithus is very far
Stranglethorn, Elwynn Forest, don't forget Westfall

Level up, quest grind, AoE will save you time
Move on up, don't delay, South Park just killed boars all day

Ganked again in STV, corpse camping, let me be
My class sucks, it's not fair, I'm rolling warlock

Soon the Crusade is Burning
In a few more days,
We'll waste our lives away
Soon the Crusade is Burning
Don't even try to fight it
You know you're gonna buy it
