I loved the Ozzy Osbourne one.

The other was...meh.

Ozzy's tv spot is... brilliant.

Sorry, I thought they were both average at best. You would have to be a WoW-head already to like these commercials. If that's their target audience, then fine. But I don't think it is.

I'm very much not a WoW player, and I'd have to say that Ozzy one is a clever use of the celebrity and the game property. That commercial is going to resonate with both fan bases in a good way, which equals win for Blizz and Ozz.

I don't play WoW either (anymore) but, you have to admit, those TV spots were well-done and entertaining. Whether they hit their target market or not is another story. How many WoW-kids have heard "Crazy Train" or watch the "Sopranos"? But, then again, maybe that is not who Blizzard's target market for those ads is. . .

He yells for Sharon. This was one of the better commercials.

Meh...I can see how someone like...MY DAD would think it was funny. Then again, I don't know how many 50 year old parents would want to play warcraft, even after watching one of these unfunny commercials.

Well, I can't speak to the male post-50 population, but my mother-in-law started asking me about the game after seeing the Ozzy commercial. (To my shame, I answered her questions rather than trying to explain that I play WAR now. I'm not sure she would have understood anyway.)

I never liked the other ones. And it takes a lot to make Shatner not full of win. These were worse to me.

Ozzy, from brain fried artist to marketable icon, good for you.

The real genius behind Ozzy's revived success is from not him but his wife, Shaaaaaron!

/sigh Some people just hate to hate...or to be different. I very rarely laugh out loud at commercials, but holy crap that Ozzy commercial is gold!

Wow - I wasn't impressed at ALL with the Ozzy commercial. Frankly, I thought it was rather pathetic.

At least the Steve Van Zandt spot made sense, although it wasn't particularly funny.

I like the Ozzy one... the other one is kinda lame also real bad acting.

Still think that WoW not really need the commercials. They may as well give the money to the poor guys of Age of Conan or Warhammer so they finally can hit 1m subs! Warhammer finally will have people to fill that many servers.
