Chuck Norris Appears in WoW Commercial
When I started out in World of Warcraft as a Horde player, I soon became familiar with the "Barrens chat," the chatter of new players in the game. And one common feature were the Chuck Norris jokes, "Chuck Norris is so tough ..." While obviously some never got bored of them, others found them annoying. Still, they became part of how we remembered the Barrens.
It was probably just a matter of time Chuck Norris would be approached to do a commercial for Blizzard.
Chuck Norris didn't break a sweat filming the newest World of Warcraft television spot. Instead, he made the director cry and then cooled himself with the tears.
This World of Warcraft television commercial debuted on CBS during the first half of the Chargers-Bears NFL game Sunday, November 20, 2011.
It's funny on one hand after all those hours listening to Barrens chat. On the other, Chuck Norris seems not like a hunter as the commercial calls him, but like the new "monk" character class in the next expansion as he fights with his hands (more on that later).

Naturally, this has become the talk of WoWers. Their forum thread as of today has 27 pages, and no doubt more are to come as players continue to comment on this in-game joke turning into a commercial.
Welcome to Warcraft, Chuck Norris.
