Grand Theft Auto V takes place in the fictional city of Los Santos, in the fictional American state of San Andreas. But Zapruder Pictures reproduced the GTA V trailer in the real city of Madrid, in the real European country of Spain.

Here’s the original. 

The parody reproduction is shot-for-shot, with some nice CGI in the car crashes and aircraft fly-bys. Is it just us, or does the video game version look just as good as the real life version?

One has to wonder what the original game teaser would look like if it were recreated in the upcoming next-gen version of GTA V.
