…It’s Movie Monday: The Craft of War: BLIND?

The Craft Of War

The Craft of War: BLIND is a film made entirely within World of Warcraft.

Though that seems like it would be a very tough and creativity-limiting restriction, the end result is a fantastic bit of low-cost cinematography that would rival anything put out by a pro animation shop:

…Project Lore loves World of Warcraft?

Project Lore

Project Lore is all things World of Warcraft.

By bringing together five dudes, four cameras, and the most famous online game ever to wreck lives and take over computers, Project Lore “is all about putting the best multimedia MMORPG game guides in one place”.

Project Lore is also going to include a daily video show and a blog, and it’s led by Alex Albrecht of Diggnation fame, so you know it’s going to have a dedicated group of die-hard fans.

If you’ve ever wanted to follow the progress of a group of level 70 players who love beer and pizza and loathe Fel Orcs, then Project Lore is the site for you.

…WoW got Mr. T and Shatner to do a spot?

First there was the Toyota truck commercial that featured World of Warcraft.

Now, there are actual World of Warcraft commercials that feature Mr. T and William Shatner explaining their in-game characters like only Mr. T and William Shatner can.

Bravo, WoW; bravo.

…Toyota has four wheels of furry?

Toyota has embraced the World of Warcraft culture in their latest commercial for the Tacoma, and given one of the characters “Four Wheels Of Furry!”

Surprisingly, it’s an entertaining commercial that pulls off authenticity quite well.

See for yourself:

I am the law giver!

…It’s April Fools’ Day?

Today is one of the Internet’s favorite holidays. Though I’m not going to try and trick any of the DYH readers (I promise), I am going to be covering the hoaxes and pranks that appear around the net. Here are some of the better ones:

Google Paper

Google announced Gmail Paper, a permanent archive service that prints your emails for free onto paper that is supported by giant ads that are printed on the back. It handles attachments, is good for the environment, and there is no limit on the number of times you can use it.

Google TiSP

Google announced TiSP, a free in-home wireless broadband service that taps into your toilet. The service is supported by the use of “information gathered by discreet DNA sequencing of your personal bodily output to display online ads that are contextually relevant to your culinary preferences, current health status and likelihood of developing particular medical conditions going forward”.

Random Crap

Woot sold a $1,000,001 bag of crap. When users clicked on the picture of the bag, they were given a coupon code that knocked the cost down to $1.

Fucked Company

Tech Crunch, a site that focuses on Web 2.0 startups, announced that it had acquired Fucked Company, a site that focuses on Web 2.0 shutdowns.


ThinkGeek announced “stuff for smart asses”, including a WiiHelm(et), an 8-bit tie, inhalable caffeine stix, and a lonely guy dream vacation digital photo frame. (They also announced that the iPhone was now shipping, but that’s just cruel.)

CollegeHumor GoDaddy

CollegeHumor made it look as if their domain had expired and was now for sale through GoDaddy.


Technorati switched around their letters and renamed their site haterTonic.

Tinfoil Hat

World Of Warcraft introduced a new item called the Tinfoil Hat. “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you”.


CrunchGear gave their entire site a 1999 redesign, complete with flashy gifs, a horrible background, and a no structure (though it still reminds me of a lot of current MySpace profile pages).
