New WoW ads featuring Shatner and Mr. T

Eliah Hecht

As our lovely sister site Massively posted about a few hours ago, there are some new WoW ads on the air! These feature the familiar faces of Mr. T and William Shatner, who is best known as Denny Crane from...wait, what? Star something? Nobody remembers that. Blizzard promises another ad coming soon starring Verne Troyer, who played Mini-Me in the Austin Powers movies. Download high-res versions at Blizz's site, or see below for Youtube copies.

I really like the minimalist style of these ads. I have to wonder, though, why now? Is WoW losing subscribers faster than we thought? Does this mean Wrath is far away, and they're trying to keep their numbers high in the mean time? Or are they just ads, and we shouldn't try to infer much from them besides that mohawks are awesome?
