Shh, shh, I don’t want to hear about how this second or that was cut out of the video or song, I just want to believe that Elsa’s song matches up perfectly with the cinematic trailer to my favorite World of Warcraft expansion, in which the Lich King, an amalgamate identity ruled now by the form of Arthas the Butcher, former prince of Menethil, raises the the unwilling corpse of a mad dragon’s consort to join his shambling armies before he rides out to extinguish all life on Azeroth.
