So, in 2007 and just before the release of Halo 3, Microsoft’s advertising campaign was running in overdrive to spread the word that the countdown sequence to ‘the second coming’ in the world of videogames had begun, letting everyone know that this mighty title was imminent.
As part of that campaign (entitled ‘Believe’), Microsoft and its ad agency released a diorama-based commercial showing a frozen moment in time on a supposed battlefield in which protagonist Master Chief himself was a part of. The trailer was epic and set to hauntingly beautiful music ‒ just the thing to get gamers in the mood for Halo 3.
Now, with the release of Epic and People Can Fly’s Bulletstorm late next month, a specially themed parody of that ‘famous’ Halo 3 trailer has been unleashed. Depending on your tastes, it may invoke a guffaw or two.
Oh, it also has brand new in-game footage from Bulletstorm right near the end, so watch out for that:
Bulletstorm ‒ Halo 3 Trailer Parody
