One of this season’s standout episodes of Community was “Advanced Dungeons & Dragons,” in which the study group comes together to play the classically nerdy fantasy role playing game. But that was not Dan Harmon’s first foray into D&D humor! No, sir. Back in 2000, he was hired to make a short video to promote the game Summoner. Kind of a weird thing, seeing as that this was well before the YouTube era of online video.
In any case, he wrote it and also did one of the voices in this short made using game characters. I don’t remember Summoner at all, but I assume this video helped it sell millions upon millions of copies.
