Believe it or not, World of Warcraft will turn seven this coming Wednesday, November 23, and in celebration, Blizzard will be handing out a Feat of Strength along with a gift that contains fireworks, and temporarily grants a special tabard along with a 7% experience point and reputation bonus when used. On top of that, the developer will be airing a new TV commercial during the Chargers vs Bears NFL game this Sunday (tomorrow) on CBS. The commercial features a mystery spokesperson, who will follow in the footsteps of previous WoW luminaries such as: Ozzy, Mr. T, William Shatner, Steve Van Zandt and Verne Troyer.

The commercial will air during the first half of the game, which should kick off around 1.15pm PST/4.15 EST, and if you’re not into football, just wait around a bit as some illustrious YouTube user will surely have it up 10 seconds after it first airs.
