I am surprised of how many people actually didn't know it was staged.... lol
I have always loved this. Yes, the famous video may have been staged, but it was based on what Leeroy did when they weren't recording.
Why 'd you show me this wowhead? I'm going to cry now. WoW ruined.

I can't believe anyone at any point actually thought this wasn't stage, lol. I always assumed it was just done as a parody of raiding.
I suppose now you will tell me the Onyxia "more dots!" was fake too?
The Animated Movie "Monsters Vrs Aliens" has a clip for this too in the Deleted Scenes.https://youtu.be/D-cjAtTElow
always thought it was legit, you've just crushed a little bit of my childhood wowhead you really have 🤤
It was obviously staged and was still hilarious. I always considered it a parody of RL WoW.
That gave it away that is was a fake. If the guy shooting the video really didn't know this was going to happen. He would have been following the original start to begin with. The fact that he was aggroing everything meant that he was in on it too.
I don't get why people are so salty over this being staged....The guy made himself into an icon lol, who cares if it's staged or not, he gave us something to laugh about and made it into memes and all.Grow up salty kids, it's still funny staged or not.
This. As far as I remember, the thing actually did happen and Ben (Leeroy's player) was actually /gkicked on the spot as the group wiped without being able to rezz and they had to re-run through the instance again (remember, things worked way differently back then), but was re-accepted into the guild and they decided that what happened was epic enough to make a recording of it. Which means that the version we got is as close to actual events as possible without the "real" footage recorded for posterity.
Loved the video back then, and while I realized it was staged over time, the joy it gave me never went away.
