Summary
World of Warcraft introduces its Chuck Norris character with the typical explosive martial arts flair that the legendary actor is known for.

This 30-second video advertises the World of Warcraft game; in particular, its latest character, Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris is synonymous with power in martial arts and with a Phone Power promo code for VoIP, your business can have a powerful image.

This commercial stars the legendary actor and martial artist, Chuck Norris, in both real life and an animated character for the hugely-popular online game, World of Warcraft. The video opens up with the real Chuck, then puts him side by side with his animated version, complete with a huge tiger for a fighting companion.

The video then alternates between Chuck interacting with the camera, such as throwing a lethal punch, and the animated Chuck fighting bad guys in dramatic fashion. The voiceover recalls Norris’s reputation of invincibility by declaring that Chuck is a hunter who does not hunt because hunting implies the possibility of failing and, as we all know, Chuck Norris cannot fail.

The narrator goes on to affirm that the 10 million World of Warcraft players exist only because Chuck allows them to.

The video invites the viewer to try the game at its website and then closes with Chuck asking the viewer, “What’s your game?”, in menacing fashion.

The high energy action combined with the instant recognition of Chuck Norris create a perfect backdrop for the game. The fight scenes are impressive and memorable, one showing the character punching a huge whale shark while another showing him spinning, kicking and sending his opponents flying into nearby structures.

There is no mistaking that this is a computer game and there is no mistaking whose character has been added to the game. Viewers will remember the product as well as the advertisement, as its distinctive animation is featured prominently throughout the video.
