VIDEO: World of Warcraft's Mr T ad

Activision Blizzard, the publishers of the ultra-successful World of Warcraft MMORPG, will be launching a series of TV ads for the game in Europe. A series in the US a while back featured William Shatner, Mr T, Verne Troyer, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Willy Toledo.

Only one of the European ones has appeared so far, featuring the man and mohawk that is Mr T. He confirms in the ad that Europe will be getting a "mohawk grenade" that players can throw at people to turn their heads into a night elf with a mohawk.

There's a second, similar commercial too, which scan's Mr T's head and hair, before declaring it perfect. Both should be showing on British TV screens from now - in time to convince parents to buy their kids a subscription for Christmas. At least we assume that's the idea...
