Amumu

League of Legends has been branching out into cool content creation. Not content with normal champion spotlights and patch rundowns, they have released some real winning videos, including teaser trailers and cool music videos. This latest one is incredibly well done, but you may need some tissues.

Here is the devastatingly mournful video:

If you don’t have YouTube access and need even more of a reason to cry, here’s a link that will work for you.

And here are the lyrics for those of you who (like me) like such things.

Every child in Valoran has heard the tale before,
About the cursed mummy boy who felt his heart no more.
So sad and lorn, the helpless lad, Amumu was his name,
He ventured out to find a friend and learn about his bane.

For many years, young Amumu traveled through the lands,
Determined to make friends, if only they would understand,
But even when Amumu stood upon the ledge of home,
His hope would disappoint him, and he would remain alone.

But then the curse began to whisper in his ear,
And would confirm what was Amumu’s biggest fear,
It pledged that never shall someone become his friend,
It pledged that he shall be alone until his end.

The sorrow and despair,
Became too much to bear.

The moment when Amumu realized what he had done,
Too late it was, for him, for them, the evil curse had won.
The anger and the anguish overwhelmed his fragile soul,
And caused a wicked tantrum that he never could control.

What an insanely sad story and video. Just think of that the next time you play as Amumu and blow his Ult. Poor, poor Amumu.
