Get your first look at some WoW: Cataclysm footage on SNF

The National Football League and World of Warcraft: two things with a lot in common. Wait. Hear me out.

Both are the dominant players in their respective worlds (professional sports and MMOs). Both can make you waste an entire day doing nothing but eating and drinking while sitting in front of a screen. Both have a rabid fan base that can talk your head off about the smallest point of minutia and bring up stats that no normal person would ever remember. Both have guys in armor attacking each other. There’s more, trust me.

Really, the two things are practically the same, so it comes as no surprise that World of Warcraft will be debuting a new commercial with the first cinematic footage from the game on Sunday Night Football this Sunday… night. In case you care, the game is Dallas vs. Minnesota, which are basically two of the most disappointing teams of the season duking it out over who is going to be the most disappointing.
