The World of Warcraft is a huge universe with many cult reference and icons. Love or hate the game, it has a lot of fans and subscribers who contribute to the success. If you haven’t been watching TV you probably missed the new World of Warcraft Commercial starring Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris's influence on World of Warcraft rivals no one. Using Chuck Norris was long overdue for a commercial given the success of his legendary status online and within many games.
There are other actors, cult heroes, and iconic people who are also deserving of a well-made tailored commercial to promote the World of Warcraft franchise. Here are my top 3 picks.
Harrison Ford – He is already represented in the game as Harrison Jones. He can be found in Stormwind in the library as the Professor in Archeology, questing in Grizzly Hills, Zul' Aman, and Uldum. Why cant we have the next greatest cult hero in a commercial. If Nathan Drake can get him why can WoW?
Vin Diesel – He has had an open affinity for World of Warcraft by publicly mentioning the game on a talk show. While I do not know if he still plays, he would be a great candidate to spread the message in a TV commercial. I would also like to him to voice a boss fight with his iconic voice.
Felicia Day – She has to be the Princess of World of Warcraft. Everyone knows and recognizes her success with The Guild. The Guild is a Web Series that began as a crowd sourcing initiative with the fans and took off. Felicia Day has had many cameos and roles in TV series. She is an unofficial ambassador to World of Warcraft with The Guild. She can be found in Dragon Age Web Series online in her latest work commissioned by Bioware. She could act in, direct, and produce an awesome commercial.
Those are my choices who would make great candidates for new World of Warcraft Commercials. What are your choices and picks that I might of missed? There are no wrong answers so I would like to hear from you!
