Jokes and songs decorate the WoW community


We get a lot of musical submissions and comedy bits sent to WoW Moviewatch. For better or for worse, we can't always run them. Moviewatch usually needs an animated movie or live-action narration to really work. It's a rough guideline, but it's been a consistent one for years.

Of course, we see some awesome stuff that deserves its own spotlight. These are songs, comedy routines, and moments of sheer awesome that you shouldn't miss. It's up to you to decide whether they're good, of course, but that's what makes it a community effort.

Work warning: The above video contains cursing and adult themes.

First up is a hilarious pastiche of WoW jokes from Trade Chat. I didn't expect to hear much new material. After all, we've been making tauren puns around here for seven years. (I'm looking at you, Layonhoofs.) What's more, I'm generally a clean humor kind of guy, and this video features more cursing and sexual references than I'm accustomed to. Nonetheless, by the end of the routine, I admit that I was literally laughing out loud. Very well done, Mlle. Panser.

Of course, we have a few songs to help keep you in the musical mood, as well:
  • Rolling Through the Keep is an obvious Rolling In The Deep parody. It's the creator's first song, so hats off for stepping into the WoW parody game. We need more creators.
  • Epics is a parody of Secrets. I think this vocal performance was a little more true to the original than Rolling Through the Keep, at least in terms of sheer performance guns, but I'll admit I like Rolling Through The Deep a little better.
And while the following content isn't strictly speaking from WoW, I think we all know who Myndflame and Wowcrendor are. They've taken up a bit of ... rapping, I guess? ... with homages to League of Legends characters. Check out For Demacia by Myndflame and Wowcrendor's response. (They obviously inherited it from Ember Isolte.) Not really our usual fare around here, but it was a whole lot of fun.
