I remember when I was about 5 years old, my parents had a Backgammon gaming board in our livingroom and I thought it was a beautiful pattern on top of it but I didn’t have the slightest idea how that game was played.
As I was browsing through the most viewed YouTube videos of the week I found this video showcasing the world first ‘Algalon the Observer’ kill on 25 man. It’s been viewed by almost 500 000 people already.
This World of Warcraft video is about 10 minutes long but you don’t have to spend more than a minute do understand that there’s a new generation growing up and don’t be surprised if you don’t understand shit about what makes them go wild. But rest assured. Understanding this new generation is what future communication, business development and branding is all about.
Every month more than 11 million kids, teens and grownups log on to World of Warcraft and fight against each other. That’s 2 million more than the entire population of Sweden. What’s stunning is the fact that games like these are played by 6 year olds today. Imagine their view on technology and communication. For them playing online together with other kids all over the world is not something new, cool or amazing. For them, tomorrow is today and they take it for granted.
Is your brand ready for them?
