To be honest—and isn't that what this site is all about?—I have no idea if this is really a commercial for World of Warcraft or if it's a spoof done by G4 . But whatever it is, it strikes a chord of truth never before seen in an ad for video games. Enjoy.
Okay, so not all of the ads you'll see in this blog are real. Some—and possibly the best of them—will have been created in parody by consumers.

And call me crazy, but isn't one of the actors in this ad Lloyd from Entourage?
This ad for chain restaurant Bennigan's looks exactly like any ad for any other chain restaurant on the surface. Fresh vegetables, happy families, and attentive waitstaff.
