This is a parody of Kanye West's Power. It seems like a send-up motivation for the guild Elysiam to help them get ready for Cataclysm. If you're familiar with the original song by Kanye West, then you will probably recognize most of the lyrics in this parody. Kayhettin did a good job of parody Kanye's original vocal style, even tailoring it a bit toward the kind of voice acting you hear in WoW.

The challenge with this kind of video is that it plays off the original video. While I'm not a Kanye West fan normally, the original video for Power is actually kind of amazing. It was highly stylized, beautiful to watch, and chock full of symbols and allegory. It's so good that I had challenges ignoring my knowledge of the original while watching this parody. It's up to each viewer to decide whether the parody is a success, but I couldn't stop thinking about Power's actual video.
