Bloodvein is taking a swing at satire and WoW social commentary with WoW Celestial Steed - Public Service Announcement. This video can feel a little frantic as it moves between three different scenes. At first, you have a gnome dutifully begging his mom for the money to buy the star pony. The second scene includes an odd blood elf wearing a gnome mask makes some claims and statements about the steed. Then, lastly, Amazing Horse by Weebls makes a return to machinima, courtesy of Bloodvein.

This video is obviously meant to be commentary on the ongoing discussion about whether owning as Celestial Steed qualifies its rider as being a "newb." I'm not sure if Bloodvein is trying to respond to specific other videos, although there have been a few released like Nub Tales episode 1. It's awesome to see machinimators taking part in community dialogue in a way that informs the player base, expressing opinions and feelings about things happening in the game. Hopefully, we'll see more of this kind of thing in the future.
