You can always tell a super-mega-hit WoW
movie pretty quickly after its release by how many times it lands in the mailbox of your intrepid WoW.com journalist team. To help put this in perspective, Run This Raid
has hit my box more than any other video except BLIND
. Nothing about Run This Raid
is machinima or fan-created, although it's pretty obvious at this point that CollegeHumor has at least a few folks who have played the game. But, still, when something like this hits the community, your intrepid team will cover it.
Run This Raid
is a song-length parody of Run This Town
. However, instead of Jay-Z, we get some WoW
players and a night elf. I have to say, I found the whole thing pretty fun. The video was put together with an eye for fun. And like many such parody videos, Run This Raid
seems to have an underlying fondness for the game that keeps the joshing all in good fun.
