Twelve-year-old Hans Jørgen Olsen and his sister encountered a troubled moose while walking in the forest near their Norwegian home. After diverting the beast's attention away from his younger sister, Hans played possum, "just like you learn at level 30 in World of Warcraft", to avoid being attacked.

"Feign death" is a skill acquired by level 30 hunters in Blizzard's massively popular game which recently surpassed 9 billion paying subscribers worldwide. Hans, his sister, and the moose all reportedly walked away from the incident without injury.
