Code Monkey is one of the classics of machinima. It was created by Spiffworld to serve as a music video for JoCo's inspired creation. It does an amazing job of capturing the heart of the song and translating it into the World of Warcraft. I mean, really, how can you not feel for the poor code monkey in this movie?

This video is about three years old, but it's still brilliant. It doesn't feel dated at all. This video proves how a good concept, some careful consideration while building the imagery, and a strong sense of fun can maintain a video through the years. Your graphics don't have to be fancy if your overall craftsmanship is strong.
