Soulja Boy Has a Wholesome Reaction to Discovering His Iconic Dance in World of Warcraft
Soulja Boy discovers his legendary dance moves have been in World of Warcraft for over 10 years in a wholesome moment while streaming on Twitch.
While streaming World of Warcraft on Twitch, Soulja Boy encountered his own iconic dance moves in the game. The famous rapper’s reaction to the discovery in World of Warcraft was as funny as it was wholesome.
DeAndre Cortez Way, better known as Soulja Boy, is a famous star who stormed onto the rap scene in 2007 with his hit debut single “Crank That (Soulja Boy)”. The song had such a profound impact on the cultural zeitgeist of the time that World of Warcraft used dance moves from the iconic music video in the /dance emote for the male Goblin characters added in the 2010 Cataclysm expansion. Since then, Soulja Boy has found further success in nearly a dozen albums, film and music video appearances, and as a recently-unbanned Twitch streamer.
During a recent stream, Soulja Boy started playing World of Warcraft. While exploring Orgrimmar on a Blood Elf character, one of his viewers found him in World of Warcraft on a Goblin character and began dancing in front of him. Shock and excitement overcame Soulja Boy as he quickly recognized the moves this character was performing as his own. Fans can watch the clip of his reaction on Twitch here. Warning: Soulja Boy’s excitement causes him to use some profanity.
Soulja Boy’s fans got a kick out of his reaction at discovering his own dance in World of Warcraft. The friends and fans in his voice chat during his discovery can be heard laughing along with his excitement. “You gotta play a Goblin now, bro,” one person said. “Get a race change! You gotta play a goblin for sure.” Another pointed out how funny it was that Soulja Boy didn’t know the “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” moves were added back in Cataclysm. “Blizzard went crazy, bro. That’s 2010 too, bro.” However, from his chat, it seems plenty of Soulja Boy’s fans who are less familiar with World of Warcraft didn’t know either.
According to his recent stream, Soulja Boy was enjoying his time in World of Warcraft. He completed the Exile’s Reach starting experience from Shadowlands, and then proceeded to explore in Zandalar for several hours alongside members of his audience. He claimed he wanted to check out World of Warcraft Classic, but players will have to see if he ends up continuing his journey in Azeroth during future streams.
There is plenty of stuff for World of Warcraft players to do right now. Dragonflight recently dropped its biggest content patch with Embers of Neltharion, with the new Aberrus raid opening on May 9. If Soulja Boy eventually reaches max level, perhaps he can stream his own attempts at challenging these difficult World of Warcraft encounters.
World of Warcraft is available now on PC
