Check out what the creators of the video above had to say about it:
“The video was developed as a passion project to recreate the current style of Star Wars action seen in video games into live action. This style often combines elements of Force powers with the use lightsaber combat. As there are no upcoming live action Star Wars movies to this date, this was a project to make many of the fans’ dreams into a reality.”
I could have immediately started off this post discussing the topic of this post, Battlefield 3, but I had to post the video above first. It seems that there has been the rising trend of videogame IRL(in real life) viral videos, and I must say I’m loving this trend! The video above is just one of the many #IRL videos that has been hitting the web and becoming viral sensations. The video is just one of the many videos by Gak Attack, a Toronto based crew that has become known for their high quality footage, original concepts, and mind blowing professional stunt team (in this video the stunt team is Team 2x.)
The Jedi Ninjas video is pretty spectacular, but I’ll have to admit I’m really feeling the Battlefield 3 IRL video. It was just released a few days ago on YouTube by NoFrontier100 and it’s another viral video that is being passed around the media circuit. I’m telling you guys, you’ve got to stay on top of the social media trends. So many amazing viral videos are coming out every single day. It’s mind-blowing!
Even though I play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 almost every single day (what can I say, I’m a COD fan,) I still also play Battlefield 3. It’s a great game! Both of the games are really good in my opinion, but I still enjoy the online play of MW3 more in comparision to playing online with BF3. However, watching this new viral video “Battlefield 3 Real Life Battle” did inspire me to go pick up the controller and hop on some BF3. Yet, I doubt I’m going to do that anytime soon. I’m still working on my rank in Mw3 (currently 58. Lt. Colonel II.)
Whether I go play Battlefield 3 right now or next week, I still will admit that this video below is awesomesauce. The video takes place in a Team Deathmatch setting, and it has all the essential components: med packs, reloading, heavy breathing after a quick sprint, and even a near-death moment. You know the moment when the screen gets all hazy and you can hear the pulsating heartbeat? Yup, it’s got that too. I’m telling you guys, these independent filmmakers and crews are doing it big with these viral videos. Hollywood who? Pssst! It’s all about being a mega viral sensation, and if you can get a Hollywood actor/actress in it, then you’re really making it big.
The video below doesn’t have any mega stars in it, but it’s still a cool video that I’m sure Battlefield 3 gamers will like. Eh, even if you don’t like the video or the game, you’ve still have to give it praise for the creativity. At the end of the day that’s what matters the most…
