Jamie Lee Curtis was psyched to meet Colorado’s World of Warcraft celebrity

Known to many as Leeroy Jenkins, this Colorado’s World of Warcraft shenanigans went viral in the days when YouTube was still in short pants.

A weird, nerdy Colorado moment, this Denver Comic Con weekend:

Schulz, his long blond hair in a ponytail and his bushy beard nicely combed, made his way over to Curtis. “I have a surprise for you,” he said, without introducing himself. Then he let out a holler. “LEEROOOOOOY JEEENKINS!”

Curtis immediately knew who he was. “I need a picture,” she told him excitedly.

Joel Warner at International Business Times has chatted a few times over the years with the Colorado man whose (probably staged) World of Warcraft shenanigans went mega-viral in the days when YouTube was still in short pants. But now that “World of Warcraft” is a big movie, Warner has again caught up with Ben Schulz, who expresses some regret about his more famous nom de guerre.
