Zapruder Pictures, a duo of fan filmmakers out of Madrid, recreated the Grand Theft Auto 5 announcement trailer in their hometown. How close the short comes to replicating the original is impressive, though it's not afraid to bend reality with the help of some well-placed special effects.
Watching the footage, I'm reminded how much I would like to see a Grand Theft Auto set outside the United States. I understand that goes against the franchises' love-hate relationship with our nation, but wouldn't you like GTA: Madrid? Or Shanghai? Or how about a modern GTA set in London? That worked well in 2D!
