    Greatest WoW Youtube Video of all Time - Nomination thread

    I think its a good place in the history of WoW to attempt this.

    We will spend 1 week in the nominating process (or until posting in this thread dies down). After which, I will set up a bracket to vote for videos. I don't think a video has to have millions of hits to be considered great, and some of these are very old now.

    I will open with some of the more famous ones:

    1. Unbreakable PVP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ja1j7xWpB3w

    Claim to fame: Demonstrated the absolutely domination of the enhancement shaman in vanilla WoW PvP. The OPness was so ridiculous, that Blizzard nerfed enhancement shaman until the end of time...

    2. Serenity Now VS Winterspring Funeral
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHJVolaC8pw

    Claim to fame: Either hilarious or twisted depending on your disposition. Excellent choices of music, well put together, emotional.

    3. Leroy Jenkins
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkCNJRfSZBU

    Claim to fame: Actually crossed over into mainstream culture to some degree because of how hilarious it was. An in-game title created in its honor.

    4. Blind: Hide and Seek - Blood elf rogue invades Stormwind
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNP9YaHTH3Y

    Ground-breaking in its time. Used the in-game animations amazingly well.

    5. Betty and Me
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShPAyOoOGPw

    Johnathan Coulton had some hilarious songs, and I thought this was the best of his WoW videos set to his songs. Either this or Re: your Brains.

    When I saw this thread, two vids came to mind...

    the stupidly talented Summergale's version of Ulduar (cover of Timbaland's The way I R, which I hate, mostly for grammatical reasons)

    and then another VERY talented vid maker, Realityshock, with his EPIC vid Ulduar: in the mountains

    if you haven't guessed, I really like Ulduar
    Reading A Song of Ice and Fire is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere, shoots the puppy and punches you in the face.

    Stands in front of 100 enemies with 10% health left "Myeh, I'll save my potions for when I REALLY need them." - every rpg player ever.

    Man I haven't heard that Ulduar video from Summergale in 2 years. Gets my vote...or maybe Blind.

    One of the first movies I watched, and still like to this day, was the World of Roguecraft.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vnvn0swfviw

    It's long, a lot of OP rogue footage from Vanilla, with some decent music.

    I really liked Blind also. I never liked Leroy Jenkins. But the -50 DKP must be mentioned. (Still reference it in my raids today)
