Nanding rose to fame in the World of Warcraft community back in 2013 when he entered a cosplay contest at BlizzCon dressed as “the one who has no life.” His costume was a reference to a sad episode from South Park, where a famous group of friends are battling a rude and powerful WoW veteran gamer named Jenkins. Jarod’s incredible dedication to cosplay, which required him to shave his head and carry a portable computer desk with him, made him an online sensation.
