Throwback Thursday – October 22, 2015

So, have you ever gone to solo Molten Core, hoping to get a pet to drop, or the very last piece of your Felheart set to drop, like that hat you spent eight months trying to get, but Garr was a jerk and never gave it up? Sorry, injecting some personal rage there.

But anyway, you’re in guild chat, or in Vent with some friends, and you mention getting Shadowstrike off Sulfuron Harbinger. Suddenly, someone decides to be funny, and start singing ‘MC Raiders’. Someone else chimes in with, “I am NOT spending DKP on that piece of crap!”

And then, to round out the trifecta of old viral video quotes you may never have heard of, someone says, “Come back baby, I have Blessing of Protection on!” as a druid guildie logs off for the night.

All of this comes from a video called ‘Illegal Danish: Super Snacks’. Created by Myndflame, it won the Blizzard Movie contest that was sponsored by Xfire. I’d link you to the winner’s page, but this was back in 2006, so those pages aren’t even around anymore.

Anyway, ‘Illegal Danish Super Snacks’ won, and went viral. People were quoting the video all over the channels. Paladins were having a field day with Blessing of Protection (now Hand of Protection). Druids were going on about being born feral. Everywhere you went, you ran into it.

In 2011 Myndflame re-released the entire ‘Illegal Danish’ video in high def, so no potato quality this week. As a warning, it’s 20 minutes long, so make sure you have the time. The end song, ‘MC Raiders’, is a fun tune. When Blizzard re-released Molten Core in late 2014, I spent a lot of time listening to it. See if you like it.
