WoW Moviewatch: Epics


I have rarely laughed so hard at a video. I don't know if it was the vocal work, the faux-serious animation, or the carefully crafted lyrics. Epics is a collaboration video between RavenSylphe, CryKoda, and RedX. I think it's also a Justin Beiber parody, but since it would diminish my masculinity by even admitting I recognize that fact, I'm going to pretend to have no clue.

It's hard to do a deep and meaningful review of something like Epics, but I do want to point out a few particularly notable pieces. First, RavenSylphe's eye for music video continues to be strong. I'd be interested in seeing the machinimator take a crack at a different movie style, but I think her continually high quality is definitely making a mark. CryKoda and RedX perform this music with a clear sense of irony and comedy, but it seems like some folks still took the song to be completely serious. I'm just not quite sure what to make of that, so I'd encourage everyone to keep an open mind when checking out Epics.
