This fake trailer cut from GTA V is the buddy comedy of the year
Hey “Most Wanted” looks funnier than anything Hollywood is cranking out these days.
Most Wanted is a trailer for a fake Hollywood comedy, using avatars from Grand Theft Auto V and the fictional city of Los Santos. The movie, were it real, would be about two friends who try to make some “easy money” as bank robbers. This results, of course, in things blowing up GTA-style.
The Commandoflague channel on YouTube is run by a part of machinima filmmakers who mostly work in the game DayZ. Avatars in DayZ move their mouths in response to what players speak into their microphones. This makes it much easier compared to other games to shoot dialogue sequences for fake movie trailers like this one, a comedy where two friends in a zombie apocalypse start eating people who’ve wronged them.
A plethora of other fake trailer-style movies, which include some musical parodies, can also be found on the Commandoflague YouTube channel.
