Look, I get getting angry if your cab didn't get you where you wanted, but this is a little extreme, no?

Ahead of the new WoW expansion Warlords of Draenor's release tomorrow, Blizzard decided to get things ready for their midnight launch a little early with this display in Times Square, featuring a Taxi cleaved open by an Axe.

Not just any axe, either! Warcraft fans will recognise the weapon as Gorehowl, the legendary axe wielded by Orc hero Grom Hellscream and most recently his son, Garrosh. I'm not entirely sure it's to-scale, but it does give me terrible flashbacks to running in between Axe-throws fighting Garrosh in WoW's 'Siege of Orgrimmar' raid. Thanks for that, Blizzard.

Nothing quite like a bit of Taxi-cleaving to get you excited for video games, right?
