Since it premiered at Comic-Con '09 there has been a lot of buzz about this music video, both within The Guild community and further afield - and it's rightfully deserved. It's a polished production with excellent lyrics, direction and choreography and can easily stand side by side with any commercially available pop song.

In "Do You Wanna Date My Avatar", Felicia Day's lyrics are as quirky as her Guild scripts, with the added bonus of getting to hear her sing (which we've all been waiting to hear more of since Dr Horrible). You'll also hear Jeff Lewis and Sandeep Parikh perform an impromptu rap during a mid-song breakdown. The rest of The Guild cast can only be seen and not heard, which is why the video is essential viewing. Amy's dancing and Robin and Vincent's "in-character" overacting needs to be seen to get the full "Date My Avatar" experience.

The latest jewel on The Guild's crown was most likely produced on a tight "web video" budget but with Felicia Day, Jed Whedon and Mo Tancharoen involved, their Midas touch has delivered another piece of web video (and audio) gold. The music is catchy, the video is fun to watch and every time this group of people release a piece of work it reminds me why I love new media so much.

"(Do You Wanna Date My) Avatar" is a fantastic, satirical pop song about the world of online MMORPGs, but more than that it's a look at the reality behind the virtual worlds many escape to. This is a song that deserves to be on the top 40 charts. Felicia Day rocks the sexy and the rap is probably the best thing I've ever heard.

If you haven't downloaded, listened to or watched - do so now.

Oh, and make sure to watch the hit series "The Guild" also available on Amazon.

Felicia is modern day geekdom's Marilyn Monroe. This song is an absolute masterpiece. Whether you're an avid MMO player or just happen to know one, this song just rocks, as does the web series "The Guild" that preceded it. Much in the same vein of Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog, another excellent work including Day and Whedon, it's hard to put your finger on what makes this series and song so good, but if you have the remotest geek bone in your body, you can't help but loving this song (and corresponding video). Not to mention, the song is really catchy!

When this video came out, I remember watching it over and over and over again. I was so hooked on it, I couldn't get enough. And I shared it with the world. I made everyone I knew watch it. And I never stopped smiling every time I watched it. Yeah, I played WoW, and my main at the time was a warlock. Although, I had recently given up on my original main, my warrior. I didn't connect with either of those characters in the video. I was hooked on Felicia Day's Priest. And a bit taken by the hunter and the rogue. Felicia Day made me want to be her in this video. It was a very powerful experience. The idea behind "Do You Wanna Date My Avatar" is one that is common in the game. I have dated many times in the game. It is a headed experience. This video captured that experience perfectly. I think that is why the message in this video is so powerful.

This is great! It's my "get-up-and-dance" fun song that always makes me smile. It's from the hit tv show, The Guild, which is a hilarious story about a group of friends that play an online game together and the real life and online "drama", jokes, and experiences. Thanks!

I love The Guild and its queen creator Felicia Day. Both talented and beautiful. She is the typical all American girl next door we all wish to someday find. She could be my avatar anytime. Catchy tune and a must have for Guild supporters. The rest of the crew isn't bad either, mom Clara is the best and Tink is sublime. The dudes are me,especially Zaboo. Zork and Blaze are great too.

This song is hysterical. The Guild is the amazing web series that gives gamers a face and most often, hysterical situations they put themselves in. The song is very pop and seems like club music. Its pretty awesome and the lyrics are hysterical. Ms. Felicia Day wrote it so of course you'll probably like it.

I'm not a follower of the Guild, but this song was just too good to pass up! Filled with references and parodies any geek would love along with a darn catchy tune, this song was stuck in my head for almost a week after I bought it. There's really nothing more to say about it except it's awesome!
