Game Publisher THQ is prepping its response to GTA4 (out this month, 4/29), Saint's Row II, for upcoming release this summer (August 26th). Via Gaming Today, I found out Gary Busey was brought on to give some excellent comments over some of their trailers.
Ah, yes, finally here’s a proper trailer for Saints Row 2. This one shows off some of the gameplay and…um, is that Gary Busey? It appears THQ enlisted the infamous
escaped mental patientactor for a few sort videos about a few different gameplay elements for the upcoming game, such as taunting, throwing people, and using satchel charges. And once again, these videos prove that everything is ten times more entertaining with even a mildly recognizable celebrity. Fun fact: Mr. Busey had absolutely no idea he was being filmed when these ads were shot. He thought he was auditioning for a role in a new stage version of The Sound of Music.
