World of Warcraft's Warlords of Draenor Expansion is releasing this Thursday November 13, but the Iron Horde has already descended on Times Square in New York City. The people who have drawn the biggest ire from the Orc army are the taxi drivers, apparently. In the age-old battle of giant axe vs cab, axe always wins.

As you no doubt know, this is what's apparently a full-scale replica of Gorehowl, the epic two-handed axe that once belonged to Grom Hellscream (of the Warsong Clan) and now belongs to his song, Garrosh Hellscream. In the game you can find it after defeating Prince Malchezaar, the Man'ari eredar raid boss that's located at the top of Karazhan.

Grommash Hellscream once again wields it in Warlords of Draenor. Again, as you know.

If you're in the Times Square area today you can see it for yourself- it's pretty damn impressive and shows just how much power Warcraft wields.

In case any tourists become worried that there was actually a giant Orc on the rampage in the city (hey, stranger things have happened), there's some clues as to what it's all about thanks to the branded police tape and nearby taxi light that's been chopped in half and bears an ad for Warlords of Draenor.

Pretty awesome stunt.
