Mythbusters: Grand Theft Auto V Edition
This video isn’t really in the same vein as the pure humor/straight-up funny style videos we usually post here, but it does give me an excuse to talk about Grand Theft Auto V. Unless you’ve been living under some kind of joyless, non-entertaining-in-any-way-rock the past several months, you’ve no doubt heard about Grand Theft Auto V. When it comes to GTA, people are usually in two camps. You either enjoy it and love playing through the series, completing the mafia-criminal style missions, causing general, good-natured mayhem and maybe obscurely banging a virtual prostitute or two, or you hate it — citing the game and it’s free-form, open-world as a spawning source of corruption and everything that’s wrong with today’s youth.
Hopefully if you’re reading this, then you have a sense of humor and general, easygoing outlook on life as we do. And if you do, there’s a good chance you should be able to find much enjoyment, amusement and generalized entertainment out of Grand Theft Auto V.
This particular video is an equally-amusing take on the game, combining the lighthearted devil’s advocate nature of the TV show Mythbusters. Basically, it goes about taking a rumor or myth about the game and going about proving it right or wrong. Pretty simple, no? However, considering some of the “myths” that are “busted” involve things like whether or not you can tow a police car while it’s actively trying to pursue you and, well… you certainly don’t have to be an actual Grand Theft Auto V player yourself to get some entertainment out of these zany, humorous videos. (Plus, the musics quite catchy — albeit in a dangerously borderline you’re-going-to-be-humming-this-to-yourself-for-the-next-two-weeks-probably-sorry-about-that kind of way…)
