Jean-Claude Van Damme Will Turn You Into a Sheep!
First we had Mr. T, William Shatner, and Willy Toledo showing their love for World of Warcraft. Well add one more C-list "celebrity" to the list as the "Muscles from Brussels" Jean-Claude Van Damme is now appearing in a WoW commercial for the French version of the game.
Luckily the European WOW web site provides a full translation of what he's saying ... not that it really matters, does it?
Jean-Claude Van Damme plays as a Troll Mage.
“My name is Jean-Claude Van Damme… and I am a mage.”
“Hand-to-hand combat for me: it's over!”
“Now I can cast powerful spells!”
“Just try messing with me… I’ll turn you into a sheep.”
“…Because we all are a bit like sheep, you know...”
“I am Jean-Claude Van Damme, I am a mage.
"What’s your game?"

That's a winner right there!
Mr. T is probably still the best so far.
On a side note, I wonder if any of these people stars actually play WoW.
This is really a very interesting time to bust out these ads, with Shatner and Mr. T and apparently these two other guys. In America, they wouldn't be able to show one of those guys playing as a human because America is screwed up in that way, but I think they're using these to push for the last few hundred thousand subscriptions required for their target goal of 10,000,000.
Shatner's ad is playing in the US dawg. We've seen it here. At least two or three times.
"Je te transforme en mouton."
And I'm a Night Elf Mohawk (Warrior).
At least the commercials are funny. The voice acting is terrible on the characters but who cares?
Tu sais. lol.
I hope that wasn't towards me, because you must not have read the comment at all. Ah well.
