"I’m touching myself tonight." The Deadpool red band trailer has been perfectly recreated, shot for shot in GTA V by a talented YouTuber.
The streets of Los Santos are tinged with a little more red than usual today. Oddly enough there seems to be a superhero dressed in red cracking wise with Trevor. If I am honest this mysterious man in red does not look like he will be a good influence on Trevor.
We managed to catch up with BTZ or David - a talented 19-year-old YouTuber from Hungary currently living in the UK. David loves nothing more than reading comics, watching movies and playing Grand Theft Auto (my kind of guy). He has a whole channel on YouTube dedicated to making all kinds of GTA related videos. After watching Deadpool at the cinema, our YouTube hero knew that there was only one thing to do. Make a badass Deadpool trailer for GTA V. He explained:
"I've always been a fan of the Deapool comics even before the hype started and had been waiting for the movie for like 8 years, so it was and still is a very special video for me. Although I hesitated a bit whether I would be able to recreate it in a way that everybody would enjoy, but thankfully by the help of Simple Trainer, Menyoo and my mad photoshop skillz I believe to have achieved the wanted result and I'm blissfully happy that as we speak over 1 million people have seen it on the gta5videos' channel, 350k on corvus' and 500k on mine"
With the whole world still obsessed with Deadpool, it is not surprising that the cheeky chappy in red has made his way into Grand Theft Auto V. What does surprise me is that it has taken this long to get him here, but my gosh, it has been worth the wait. David has created one of, if not, the best GTA V parodies I have ever seen.
Based upon Rockstar Games’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former gangbanger turned bank robber Franklin Clinton, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
David said that he and his computer broke many times whilst making the video but it was all worth it in the end - despite publishing the video a little behind schedule:
"Well, I already started the recordings in the end of August but due to my video card's sudden death (Rest in peace) it lasted until November. Although all in all it took about 40-50 hours of editing/recording, fraught with tears and sweat, because of the difficulty of some scenes eg. The ones on the flyover."
Don't worry David, you are my new hero - this video is incredible and I can't wait to see what you come up with next! Incidentally, what is next on the agenda?
"That's classified. But I can tell you that this time it'll be a quite well known series, which has been heavily requested over the past months. Hopefully will be out in a week or 2."
Get ready to see that video first on Movie Pilot. A stellar mashup from this talented young man. The future is bright for this one. At just 19 David is fast becoming a media mix master genius. As with any interview conducted on Movie Pilot we have to finish with our standard, favourite movie, favourite game quickfire Q.
"Favourite game? Definitely GTA San Andreas. In fact this game also marks my introduction to video making with all my unregistered Hypercam "full HD" 360p montages that I uploaded to youtube. Oh boy, those were the days. And Movie? Boy, it has to be Tropic Thunder. Hands down, it's one of the best satires of Hollywood and the most entertaining movie I've seen. The acting is stellar, Robert Downey Jr.'s performance is probably the best you'll ever witness in comedies."
Thank you, David! Keep up the great work and see you soon when we unveil your next big video.
