Red Shirt Guy’s glory lasts forever in World of Warcraft

That BlizzCon attendee who called Blizzard out on an error in the World of Warcraft lore has gotten his fifteen minutes of fame with a widely covered video that’s garnered more than 2.6 million views on YouTube. That was only the beginning.

Red Shirt Guy, as shown in the screenshot above, will live on forever — or until we all forget — in WoW. Oh, and Falstad Wildhammer was implemented into the game, too. So really, it’s a victory for this avid fan on two fronts. Pretty darn cool, if you ask me.

Clearly, it’s nice that they not only fixed the problem, but they had a sense of humor about it. For an industry that makes videogames, this sure is an all-too-uncommon occurrence.
