Leroy Jenkins: When all talk meets all action

I stumbled across this old YouTube video that captures a World of Warcraft pre-battle strategy meeting involving a dozen or so collaborators. I have never played WoW myself but some of the funniest videos and commercials parody those who do. This one is hilarious. Watch the entire thing but pay attention around the 1’30” mark.

The next time your team is stricken with analysis paralysis or you are on vacation with a group of people who cannot make up their minds, shout “Leeeeeerooooyyyy Jenkins” and just roll.

  1. Ah Leroy an instant classic – He was even mentioned on Jeopardy a few years back.

    Toyota actually used this as inspiration for a Toyota Tacoma commercial this year.

    The overall layout is similar and the guy even says “Let’s Do This”.

    My last game at Microsoft Mass Effect had a character called Private L. Jenkins that runs into a battle to his death at the beginning of the game. And on the title before that – we even talked about putting the corpse of a dead paladin named Leroy in a room full of drakes and drake eggs.

    Blizzard immortalized him in their card game based on World of Warcraft.
