Leeroy Jenkins appears on The Daily Show


Seems like someone used a Scroll of Resurrection on Jon Stewart, with our beloved WoW making two separate appearances on The Daily Show this week. We all know Stewart possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of geek culture, but twice in one week? We're just saying.

The first reference came on Tuesday with his Words of Warcraft bit. While addressing the mounting tension between Iran and Israel, Stewart characterized the conflict using a WoW reference on the fly-in graphic. Not a big deal, right?

The follow-up came last night when Leroy Jenkins swarmed the show. Look, you really need to go see the video. If I recap the joke for you, I'll kill the joke dead. Don't worry about subtlety. Just like Jenkins himself, there's no way you're going to miss the appearance. Our favorite part? Jon's own reaction to the shenanigans. (To quote our own McCurley, "I love how Jon Stewart legitimately loves the video.")
