Gears of War Promo Video Remixed To Metallica's "One"

Band Photo: Metallica (?)

Microsoft has recently released a very artistic feeling promotional video (aka commerical) for Epic Games' Xbox 360 title, Gears of War. This has in turn triggered a rash of remixes - some better than others. In particular, I'd like to share the remix to Metallica's "One" (with additional video footage inserted). I'd say it's more fun to watch than half of the metal videos out today.

On a personal note, I don't mind pimping Gears of War a little because I used to work for Epic Games (it seems like a lifetime ago) and I know Cliffyb knows how to make a killer game. (Like you needed any reassurance after seeing the video...)

I don't think cult hit does it justice. Gears of War is THE landmark Fall/Xmas release for the Xbox 360 platform. They've got a ton of marketing muscle behind it.

Hah! I wonder how Dave Mustaine feels about this? The new Megadeth album has a song called "Gears of War" on it that is a direct tie-in to this game and here someone has made the best remix using a Metallica song.

Patrick 7-8, eat a d***. I make more money in one day than your mom ever will. I have played a 360, and I can afford. I just dont feel like spending money on a piece of sh** Xbox 360. Microsoft can go f*** themselves in the eye for all I care. Never again will I spend a single penny on anything that Microsoft makes. So why dont you go to the nearest highway, and jump in front of a semi. f*** you and f*** your Xbox 360, even better, go f*** your Xbox360 if you love it so much, it will be the only action you ever get.

Creo que el juego va ad-hoc con Metallica y su gran cancion y es raro que la banda preste sus canciones para este tipo de cosas. No conozco mucho el juego pero creo que ahora me volvere fanatico.
