GTA 4’s Bowling Joke Reincarnates In Music Video

Suddenly it seems that much more GTA V fan video creators are turning to the pop music industry for inspiration as opposed to the telly.

Just today we reported on the recreation of a good old retro song, California by Wax, using the Rockstar Editor, and here we have yet another one. In the aforementioned article, we also point out how the music video recreation subgenre of fan videos has been somewhat sparse, and now here’s the second one in just a day. Considering how the high frequency of cool Editor videos resumed right after we wrote about how they seemingly disappeared, its safe to say that GTA 5 Cheats is downright prophetic.

While the title says GTA 4, due to the theme and characters being from that game, the article says GTA V fan video. This is because it was made using a modded version of V and the Rockstar Editor.

Many who have played GTA IV remember the main character’s cousin, Roman, constantly pestering him to go bowling. You’ll also likely remember how annoying it got, and you’ll also remember how much you regretted not going after a point in the story. The fan vid is a parody of Drake’s “Hotline Bling”, with the theme of IV’s bowling joke.

 

The creation was made with the collaboration of one 8-Bit Bastard, who also happens to be the player responsible for the magnificent GTA V wildlife documentary films that we’ve covered in the past.

The recreation deviates greatly from the original clip, keeping only the backdrop and the aesthetic direction the same. The music itself has been altered further, with new lyrics which purposefully) enter the “so bad it’s good” territory.

How many of you guys played GTA IV back in the day? Did you go along with Roman, or did you ignore his pleas?
