This is a silly article

This article is silly. Coming from a source other than the computer games, trading card game, novels, RPG, or manga, its content is not part of official Warcraft lore, but nevertheless has become part of the culture belonging to the World of Warcraft community.

SpiffWorld

Spiffworld is a YouTube phenomenon, very well known for his videos of World of Warcraft based on Jonathan Coulton and Paul & Storm songs. His highest viewed video, Jonathan Coulton's "Code Monkey" has recieved more than 6,000,000 views.

Mike "Spiff" BoothEdit

Mike Booth (often known as Spiff) started creating World of Warcraft videos around Jonathan Coulton songs in May 2006, with his first being re: Your Brains by Jonathan Coulton. Mike works for Microsoft and is a huge fan of JoCo. He has been to a few of his concerts, including JoCo's "Best. Concert. Ever." where footage of him was seen of him talking to Jonathan Coulton. He can also be seen in the front row with an orange shirt. Each time he uploads a video of Jonathan Coulton's songs, Jonathan himself uploads the link to his Twitter, as he finds them outstandingly great. As the years have passed, Mike's videos have got better and better in detail and quality. What started as something simple has turned into a YouTube sensation.

MachinimaEdit

In November 2009, Spiff stroke a deal with Machinima, which allows him to upload his videos onto the Machinima YouTube, and his own YouTube.

First of MayEdit

"First of May" was not only one of Jonathan Coulton's greatest creations, but was also one of Spiff's. He had used actions which World of Warcraft characters may use in non sexual ways, to sexual ways, and thus the video was removed from YouTube due to it's content. The video was very popular, but the video still stands on Google Video, Warcraft Movies, and Machinima.

The video can be found here (Not in Spiff's channel anymore).
