Watch Dogs' launch trailer recreated shot-for-shot in Grand Theft Auto 4

Watch Dogs? Or Grand Theft Auto? Can't make up your mind which open-world game to play? Why not have both?

YouTuber RavenswestR1 cooked up this virtuoso re-creation of Watch Dogs' launch trailer in Grand Theft Auto 4, nailing every shot and camera angle perfectly. This is something of a hobby of his, as he's done the Need for Speed movie's trailer, and the trailer for the film The Other Guys in GTA 4 as well.

For comparison, the original trailer Ubisoft released on May 22 is below.
