One of the mainstays at BlizzCon is the machinima contest – talented artists submit their movie ahead of the convention in hopes of winning fame and prizes. This year's BlizzCon is no different, and we're sure to see some great videos during the largest gathering of WoW players outside of Azeroth. Over the next few days let's take a look back at some of the winners and runner ups of last year's movie competition.
Hoodoo Teleshopping - The Deadmurloc(tm) is a video that has gained significant gravitas with recent events, due to the death of Billy Mays. No? Well, in the very least, it's a poignant commentary on the commercialism of modern America. No? Okay, but it's still pretty darn funny. It won a Runner-up mention in last year's BlizzCon machinima contest.
The voice is sometimes a little tough to make out, but the overall video is well done. I found it to be a whole lot of fun, and I tip my hat to Kilh for his creative work. Featuring one of the most hated critters in WoW as a sexy sales pitch is brilliant, and I think his video's graphics tie the whole idea together very well.
