I have no shame reblogging the new WoW commercials. Van Damme apparently plays a well... He needs to reroll, what a noob.


"My name is Jean-Claude Van Damme... and I am a mage.
Hand-to-hand combat for me: it's over!
Now I can cast powerful spells!
Just try messing with me... I'll turn you into a sheep.
A sheep! Because we all are a bit like sheep, you know...
I am Jean-Claude Van Damme, I am a mage. And you?
What's your game?"

Mages are nothing but vending machines and sheepish freaks. I was expecting some high roundhouse kicks in there -- at least he picked a Troll. Donjohn, commented at WoW Insider, providing some additional notes that pertain to the inside-jokes for zi'French.
  • Van Damme frequently uses English words in his oft-butchered French sentences
  • The line on everyone being like sheep might tie into numerous interviews with JCVD's rhapsodic views about the world

[Willy Toledo and further comments after the break]

This next one with Willy Toledo is better, and unfortunately he isn't attacking any windmills.



"Hi, my name is Willy Toledo... and I am a Paladin.
I am a combination of a spell caster and a specialist in melee combat.
...up-close and personal, clearly what I like most.
But this is serious, I'm a protector of the Holy Light.
I am Willy Toledo, and I'm a Paladin. And you?
What's your game?"







I lifted these transcriptions from the official WoW European site. If your English reading skill is lacking and you only read Mongolian, the writing is scribed into several languages.

Which one is your favorite, or do you hate these commercials? (Mr. T and Shatner editions available here). Mr. T is my personal fav, but the Shatner one comes pretty damn close because he hurls the magickz. Have these actors hit a new-low in their careers, or do they really play WoW? I could see Shatner playing as a gold farmer...
