It Was All A Dream/You're Finally Awake: The Current Meme Craze on R/WoW

Recommended Posts

Every now and then something happens and the WoW reddit explodes into untold numbers of very specific memes and posts. We had some Bastion related ones, the actually amazing super-hole-in-one challenge, the Battle for Lordaeron and  Safe Haven cinematic memes and so much more. Today we have a seemingly self-triggered onslaught, as the Skyrim intro/"you're finally awake" meme has seeped into WoW.

The catch here is that the main way community members are outdoing each other is by going deeper and deeper into the concept, as you'll see from the following progression. We'll start with the one that triggered it all (from what we can tell), as this MoP one seems to be the original:

And from there, the avalanche of memes started (unfortunately the first one was deleted, but you'll still get the gist):

Then, as is usual, the streak hit a hard left turn and got much better, as Arthas joined the fray:

Arthas may not want to speak to Pandaren enthusiasts however, as they'll quickly point out the race originally turned up in the very game the comment above is from, and it was even Arthas himself that found them!

From there the game skipping continues:

But we aren't done with WoW quite yet, as the backwards time travel continues and gets even more intense:

And then, the final two are just perfect and end things in the proper manner:

The final one is even titled "Can we be done now?" and really does feel like a great ending to a pretty solid run, even evoking some emotions, as seeing Mike Morhaime there at the very beginnings is a great moment. We're sure many more similar memes will pop up, however, so if you just can't get enough of the format, head on over to r/wow and enjoy!

      So here's a very special meme video, done so well that it basically transcends the format and becomes an actually engaging and epic video in its own right, despite being a comedy bit.
      Regardless of whether you're familiar with this particular meme format or SpongeBob in general, I feel pretty confident that you'll enjoy/love/form a cult around the video. We'll start with the basic version (which is actually very popular, getting over 600,000 views since March), and it later got a director's cut, the actual star of the show. In case you want to save 38 seconds of the original video, head to the second one below, but we're going to build some tension and excitement with the basic version, just to show how much an extended cut can improve things:
      A pretty funny premise, very similar to the basic meme format, short and sweet - how could it get better? Well, now for the masterpiece which came out a few days ago:

      We have another extremely impressive Mythic+ run, as Aeristides and company have managed to clear a +21 Mists of Tirna Scithe without a healer! The Prot Pala-lead group had a 226 average item level and managed to be 2 minutes under time on this very high key, and while there was healing, there was not a healing spec anywhere to be found!
       
      And here's the composition and more details on the gear:

      Dunegorger Kraulok is up this week and drops Slightly Damp Pile of Fur, so don't forget to head to Vol'dun and defeat the world boss for a chance at Mollie.
      Slightly Damp Pile of Fur is one of the Alpaca mounts added in Visions of N'Zoth. It has a small chance to drop from Dunegorger Kraulok in Vol'dun. Battle for Azeroth world bosses are on a fixed rotation, so you won't be able to kill Kraulok for a weeks. You can try to kill the world boss on your alts too for an increased chance at Mollie.
      "The kind nature of alpacas makes them perfect as companions for the intrepid adventurer."

      Mollie the Alpaca mount in WoW.
