It's a moody retelling of some of WoW's greatest moments, though it helps to know the lore behind Jaina and Arthas to really get it.

When Nixxiom and Mooclucking tackle The Culling of Arthas, you can bet you're in for a good time. Of course, my mere Arthas can't possible do full Arthas to this Arthas, so I'd invite you to read their words about the video: Hello, Arthas.
