This trailer is the opening cinematic from World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft. Word is: "You've ended Deathwing's destructive rampage and saved the dragonflights from extinction. Now you must unlock the mysteries of the lost continent and discover the dark secrets of Pandaria's past. Explore ancient kingdoms hidden since before the Sundering, plunder vast treasures from the depths of the forgotten vaults, and rise to defend Pandaria from the shadow of a long buried evil - before it's too late."

Well, since you seem to be more or less replying to me with that, take a step back and look at what they have here. People have indeed been "lol Kungfu Pandas!!!" for the last year.
And then, with no attempt at dissuading that, Blizzard approaches that by releasing this Kung Fu Panda trailer.
They had a chance to do something that woos people back to the game and reminds everyone that this is World of Warcraft, with epic battles and For the Horde! and the perseverance of the Alliance in the face of these evils, and instead... you get reinforcement of the Kung Fu Panda meme.
Maybe it's just me, but I left after Cataclysm and this does absolutely nothing that suggests to me that they care if I come back. That's disappointing.
