WoW Moviewatch: Why Can't I Raid?

Why Can't I Raid? was among my first exposures to the talented Sharm (who I called TaintedLore back then). The video itself was created by Leonarddum. While the auto-tune was a tad thick in this performance, that just mirrors the use of auto-tune in Rihanna's Unfaithful.

The lyrics paint the heartbroken disappointment of a raider who can never quite get a raiding spot. That's the kind of thing that can just crush a player's interest in the game after a while, and Sharm does a good job of illustrating the frustration. While I doubt she intended this parody to be an intense analysis of the game, I can't help but think there are more than a few raid leaders who would benefit by listening to it.
