There’s no trucks in world of warcraft

The iPod touch ad featuring the song, “Music is my boyfriend” was a homemade ad that Apple quickly bought and put it up on TV. But what I just saw on TV was really amazing. During the Lakers game a Toyota ad is on TV and watching it, it looked oddly familiar. It was a spoof of one of the most viewed videos on YouTube. A group of avatars are in a World of Warcraft game talking strategy, when all of a sudden, one of the players starts to scream about his Toyota Tundra and abruptly drives away. This of course is a spoof on the LeRoy Jenkins video, one of the most viewed videos on YouTube. I was shocked to see a mainstream ad, playing off a popular YouTube video without any sort of explanation.

Here’s the LeRoy Jenkins video:

Here’s the Tundra video:

    There was also a spoof for the video game awards done with business men in an elevator.
