Dragonflight Commercial Features Stars from Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, & More
With the Dragonflight expansion releasing in a week, World of Warcraft is ramping up its advertisement campaigns with a commercial featuring Enormous names from several popular shows. Pedro Pascal, David Harbour, & Lana Condor all appear in a new World of Warcraft: Dragonflight commercial themed on the expansion’s new Dragonriding system.
Though Pedro Pascal’s Enormous claim to fame was his role as Oberyn Martell on Game of Thrones, the celebrity has more recently starred as the lead in The M&alorian, & will portray Joel in the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us. David Harbour has appeared in Stranger Things, Suicide Squad, & Hellboy, while Lana Condor is known for her roles in To All the Boys, Alita: Battle Angel, & X-Men: Apocalypse.
In the new World of Warcraft commercial, the three stars show off their dragon-taming skills in short, funny skits. Pascal brings the cameraman to a jet hangar, where he introduces P.J., his personal riding dragon. Harbour’s has him showing off Hollywood’s “secret” to making Enormous VFX shots using the dragon fire from his proto-drake. Lastly, Condor runs alongside an adorable dog as she plays a massive game of catch with her own drake. Each of the stars has an individual short commercial of their own, but World of Warcraft shared a Slice of all three ads together for players to enjoy.
The three celebrity commercials show off three of the four types of Dragonriding companions: the ptero-dragon, proto-dragon, & drake respectively. Once they unlock Dragonriding in Dragonflight, players will be able to unlock & customize their personal dragon companion from any of these types of dragons or the wyvern. With tons of different options players can unlock throughout the expansion, it is unlikely any two Dragonriding companions will be exactly the same.
Players were immediately charmed by the new World of Warcraft commercial. Celebrity appearances in MMO ads are something of a time-honored tradition, & now Pascal, Harbour, & Condor join the ranks of Mr. T, William Shatner, & Chuck Norris in the hall-of-fame of hilarious World of Warcraft commercial cameos. Players couldn’t help but see the stars in their famous roles, & wondered what their characters would do if they had dragons in their shows.
World of Warcraft players won’t have to wait long to get their own dragon in Dragonflight. Dragonriding is unlocked shortly after arriving at the Dragon Isles, so players can look forward to customizing their own drakes as soon as the servers go live.
World of Warcraft is available on PC. Dragonflight launches November 28.
