In more evidence that “the Geeks shall inherit the earth”, World of Warcraft comedy troupe The Guild recently topped the iTunes charts with a video they first unveiled at SDCC. The good news comes via TubeFilter, who posted the following report! Read it and check out the video below!
Critically acclaimed web series, The Guild debuted a Bollywood-themed music video about the pleasures of MMORPGs at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Less than two weeks later, Game On is at the top of the iTunes charts.
Late last night, Katy Perry succumbed to online video starlet, Felicia Day’s social media prowess and uber-popularity. Game On bumped this summer’s top bubblegum pop hit, California Gurls from its #1 spot on the list of top-selling pop music videos on iTunes in both the US and the UK.
The news should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with The Guild’s music video track record. Last year, it only took two days for Do you Wanna Date My Avatar to break 1 million views on YouTube and reach the top of iTunes’ overall music video charts.
But Game On’s reign is currently relegated to the pop charts. Country music star and former Mr. Renee Zellweger, Kenny Chesney sits atop the overall best-seller list with his high school football anthem, The Boys of Fall. Game On comes in just below at #2.
Can Game On grab the #1 overall music video spot? Will gamers unite to take down their lifelong arch-nemeses, aka football players and fans? Let the Claim the Top Selling iTunes Music Video Quest begin.
And to tie this all together, World of Warcraft fans might also appreciate a link to the latest and greatest figures DC Direct is shipping out. I’m still not sure how they got the license (there’s probably a very simple licensing agreement I’m missing), but if you’re looking for your favourite Worgen, Orc, Elf or, really, any of the colourful characters and enemies from the game, check out all the varieties of WoW figures we have on offer!
