Class Sets "Othello" in World of Warcraft

"Your daughter and the Moor... er, Tauren... are now making the beast with two backs." - Iago, I.i (sort of)

As a class project, some industrious youths have acted out Shakespeare's play "Othello" in World of Warcraft and recorded a video for posterity. We'd give them an "A".

This adaptation was created as a class project. The version includes the whole cast of Othello acted out by WoW toons, complete with newly scripted lines and more.

With a running time of just over 13 minutes and a musical score that includes a little CCR with “Bad Moon Rising” and some “Obsession” by Animotion, this is the funniest remake of anything I think I’ve ever seen anywhere. The entire video is very well done. It’s a little fuzzy, but that minor problem is worth getting past.

Q: What does the typical World of Warcraft raid share with Shakespearean tragedies?
A: Everyone dies at the end.

I plan to do "Titus Andronicus" myself, casting undead so they can do the cannibalism part at the end.

I could go on and on, but instead I'll direct you to Irish site Ignig.com for a preview of "Othello," set in World of Warcraft

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
