Despite the massive popularity Rockstar’s Editor has been seeing among players – who frequently use it to recreate famous scenes from their favorite TV series, movies or other games, or to make short films of varying artistic value – the proprietary gameplay capture and video editing tool developed specifically for GTA V has been seldom used to make adaptations of music videos. Or at least, seldom have adaptations of music videos been made which are of a quality that makes them news worthy.
This, however, is one of those seldom occasions. Considering GTA V is rated as 18+, most of you should know of the band called Blink-182, a pop punk-rock band which sprung up during the 90’s and made its mainstream breakthrough in the 00’s. The band is considered one of the most influential groups in the history of punk rock and its mainstream explosion. This grandiose title is thanks to several hit songs which are considered “classics” in some strange warped interpretation of the word. One such song is titled What’s My Age Again, which sees the band members run around town stark naked.
In keeping with how these sorts of things usually go, the GTA V adaptation is more or less authentic in theme and less as a scene to scene adaptation, however it has been augmented with a healthy dose of good old added GTA flavored violence… Because what good would any GTA video be without pints of blood and ‘SPLOSIONS, right? The three band members have been replaced with Franklin, Michael and Trevor, who gallivant around Los Santos with naught but their socks and shoes on. For those of you unfamiliar with the source material, we really hope it’s just because this isn’t really your musical style, and not the generation gap. Here’s the original video for reference.
What do you think, which of the three GTA V protagonists is most likely to be into punk rock?
