Popularly known as “WoW Freakout Kid” or “Account Crusher”, this viral homemade video (5 million+ views since May 2009) shows a teenage boy named Stephen reacting rather violently in privacy (or he thought) after his mother cancelled his World of Warcraft online account. The video was supposedly filmed in hidden-cam fashion by Stephen’s brother (a.k.a wafflepwn), although many have expressed their doubts over whether his ranting was staged or not.
Derivatives & Remixes
Regardless of its authenticity, the video has spawned off a series of remixes and parodies on YouTube, including several derivatives authored in foreign languages as well.
