WoW Moviewatch: Pandaria

Anne Stickney

It's been a while since we've seen a new music parody from songstress Ember Isolte, so I was happy to see the announcement of a new video last night on Twitter. Pandaria, a parody of Rihanna's Disturbia, was done from beginning to end by Ember Isolte, including the song, lyrics, and the machinima as well. And just like her other parodies, (the infamous Ninja Raiders comes to mind immediately) this one is likely to be stuck in my head for the next week or two at the very least.

I think my personal measure of quality with a song parody is how well the parody suits the original material. I came out of this one wondering why nobody had thought to make this parody before, because it's just so natural -- to me, that's the mark of a good parody. Ember Isolte is, as usual, a quality vocalist. And the video itself is very well done, highlighting all the important lyrics in the video, showing off some of Pandaria's gorgeous scenery, and featuring a bunch of fuzzy pandas. What's not to like?
