South Park and WoW Show Bits

Blizzard and Comedy Central released a joint press release advertising the fact that World of Warcraft would be featured in a South Park episode. Here's the premise (from the Press Release):

In this episode, the boys come into contact with a gamer who doesn't play by the rules. Even the creative people behind World of Warcraft don't know how to stop the renegade. They are forced to put all of their hope into the hands of the kids of South Park. The boys dedicate their lives to defeating the mad gamer and saving the game for all.

Youtube has some snippets, one is the same montage (but with video) featured on the World of Warcraft website.

This is another snippet that shows a little about the premise of tonight's show:

It's set to air tonight (10/4/06) on Comedy Central at 10pm.

Update 10/6/06:
Well I thought it was hysterical. Although there's about 5 seconds I'd cut if I could (gross!). Here are some commentaries from across the web:
  • WoW Forums Thread
  • Sword of 1,000 Truths
  • World of Warcraft Addict's Blog
  • says 9.3 out of 10.
  • This livejournal poster says prepare for the influx of South Park newbs

  • Update 10/15/06: I just noticed today that you can download this on itunes at $1.99 for anyone who missed it. Right now it's the only episode of SP available. But for future reference it's the first episode of Season 10B: "Make Love, Not Warcraft."
