PSA: Mailbox Dancing

Hi everyone. We've had a great time tonight, but now it's time to talk about something that will probably affect you or someone you know during your time here in the World of Warcraft.

Mailbox Dancing.

Since 2004, this controversial art form/attention plea has captured the fascination of scientists and cyber pervs alike throughout the cities and villages of WoW. What is its purpose? Theories on this vary greatly. We interviewed a few of the dancers to find out. Here are some of the responses we got:

"I used to have a lot of body issues and now I feel comfortable with my curves and this is how I reclaim my own body and show everyone that I am happy with who I am and how I look!"
-[Asked to remain unnamed] lvl 21 Tauren Priest

"I was bored"
-Marilirri, lvl 85 Troll Shaman

"u gief gold plz"
-Ljkjlijnbukjn, lvl 1 Blood Elf Hunter

Is there a definitive answer? Maybe not. But the fact is, as long as there have been mailboxes, there have been people dancing on them.

Some might say, 'well there are so many mailboxes everywhere now... there's no way this will affect me'
True, gone are the days when the only mailbox around was being danced on, and surrounded by so many people with their mounts and pets out that you had to use all kinds of odd angles to be able to click on it. However, Mailbox Dancing is not gone, and it can happen anywhere, anytime. Unless there's not a mailbox around.

Is it bad that I don't think I've ever actually seen that on this server?

Hell...my very first day in WoW back on Gilneas...I made my first character, and innocent little night elf warrior. The first thing I see....about 10 female night elves, naked and dancing. Why I didn't leave and delete the game right at that moment is still a mystery to me. XP

Is that a coming out of the closet actualization?

I've danced on the mailboxes before, I just don't get naked when doing it.

I totally support Yellowflower making a video with lots of players mailbox dancing. We can turn it into a viral hit.

Now we need song suggestions!

No I was pretty creeped out to be honest. Especially when one whispered me.

"qtnelflol whispers: sex?"

Me IRL: O.O How the hell do I respond?

Me in game: -Runs as far away as possible-

Which is when I discovered how beautiful the nelf start area was.

(yes this is seriously what happened)

I will absolutely do that, provided I don't hate the song that is chosen.

My only suggestions are this

The video for this one doesn't make much sense, but it was the only non-awful one I could find.

Or this

Actually, any song that's been super-popular at strip clubs would work
Probably the most notable examples being http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQ4xwmZ6zi4 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dL1znsBhfuA
