Your World of Warcraft character is more in shape than you are

So, you think you could handle living in the world of World of Warcraft? That you've got what it takes to run across the open plains from battle to battle? I'm betting you don't. The two guys above tried to test out how well they'd do in Azeroth by dressing up like their characters and hooking treadmills up to their computers. They made their intended trek, but they nearly passed out in the process.
Even worse? They were running a 6mph, while their character was trucking along at 12mph with a whole load of armor and weapons on its back. Yikes. I guess we'd best leave all that running and fighting to those fit and trim blood elfs and such in the game, as you certainly couldn't hack it yourself.
