Have you wondered who this Leeroy Jenkins fella everybody keeps talking about is? Then watch this World of Warcraft video and wonder no more.
This was uploaded to YouTube almost six years ago in 2006, making it one of the first viral YouTube videos. Since then it has been watched more than 30 million times, and Jenkins has become a celebrity.
It shows a party of WoW players preparing for a raid. Leeroy Jenkins is away from the computer, and when he returns just runs straight in, determined to ignore all the strategy previously discussed. But not before shouting “Leeroy Jenkins!”
That battle cry has now become the go-to phrase before running headlong into a fight. So now you know. Whether you wanted to or not.
