StarCraft II Launch Was Apparently Quite Big

So StarCraft II was officially released last night. I'm told it's quite good, though I wouldn't know since I'm stuck here in the office while stupid Adam Biessener gets to play it all day (or he would if he had a functional computer). Grumble, grumble, etc. Anyway, in addition to being a huge deal for me, the StarCraft II launch was also important to Blizzard and tons of screaming fans all around the world. Here's some video evidence.

This video from Blizzard includes footage from the launch events in Seoul, South Korea, Paris, France, and Orange County, California. Expect to hear lots of shouting, scope some nerdy-looking dudes, and even meet one fan who "came all the way from South Africa for the launch."
