Very nice. I have a friend who does that mispronouncing words thing, to the tune of:

Me: Eth-E-re-al.
Him: Ether-al.
Me: Eth-E-re-al.
Him: Yeah, Ether-al.

I'd guessed that "god" was her roommate trying to get someone to do major quests with - the actual source was far more entertaining. ;)

The leech/ Lich bit was outstanding.
Was that the music from the Halo video?
Didn't like the grinding bit. Thought it was boring.
Solid video.

I actually set that microwave to the correct time the day before, so I guess I'm the reason that there is a continuity error.

I take it the sentiment of the max level has a lot to do with the fact that you can dick people over and do it well.

I hope not. At least, I don't think so.

It's interesting to note that while members of the crew and our friends do play WoW, everyone involved with this video from writing to shooting, do not (Paul, Myself, Kathleen, Jer, Morgan).

Maybe you just didn't think it was funny? That's allowed, we won't mind.

Couple of awesome lines in this one, though:

"Oh My God!"
"Cause that never gets old"
is my favorite.

All you Wow player, can you actually get to level seventy in three days?


Seeing as teh_pwnerer did it in 2 days (aka impossible for a normal human) I think it's safe to say that it's impossible. I don't play WoW myself though.


The video was really great though! The ad was among my favorites thus far.
Just the Idea of Blizzard monitoring hundreds, maybe thousands, of players in such an omnipotent manner is hilarious. Add in Paul and Graham in lab coats and need I say more?

Kathleen using the mouse on her head was quite amusing. Also, I found it rather strange, but I can't say that I remember Kathleen wearing jeans in any other videos. It was just different so it jumped out I guess.

Pretty much awesome on the writing and performance. My biggest gripe overall was the shaft of "light" in the swishpan, and the fact that Kathleen's room was all echo-ey compared to God talking to her. Which I guess makes sense because God>Kathleen (no offense), but the audio switching between her and God seemed really obvious to me, and was kind of distracting.

However, when somebody is complaining about something so trivial, you know you've done good.

I love this video so much, if for no more reason than it reminds me of my endless nights playing WoW. I never got very far, that makes me sad :( . Ah well, I've moved on to games that are, y'know, fun, since then.

And yeah, all you really need to know to get this is that WoW is a massively popular game for which an expansion pack was just released. And possibly not even that.

A pretty good update! I liked the twist of Blizzard tricking people into playing the game, it was pretty well done. And it's always good to see Kathleen front and center in a video. AH LIKES IT!

The stumble at Graham's "three disks and a commentary track" line in the ad made the whole thing seem sorta off-kilter. Otherwise, the ad was pretty awesome, but I just couldn't shake the feeling that created. I know it happens while filming, but was another take not possible? Maybe I'm just too anal.

Side note: The word "dilhole" = instant comedy
There are things in this world that I dislike. One of the things I dislike the most is a serious argument, well constructed, delivered by someone who makes themselves difficult to respect.

we pretty much do all our ads in one take if we can. occasionaly we retake them, but we try to avoid it.

That was like the... 6th take? We were just sick of doing it I think.
