All it needs now is for the dad to shout ''awwwww c'mon!'' when his daughter bites his neck. 
 
Pretty well timed @2.02. Almost looks like the zombie is screaming the ''neervous'' lyric.

wait, it that really Ice T's youtube account? 
 
Edit: Also great job Vinny. You and me seem to think the same way because this song pop into my head as I was watching the original trailer.

Okay, the song is 3 minutes 20 seconds, the trailer is 3 minutes 8 seconds. Lets figure out what Vinny did in those 12 seconds.

Awesome, Ice T just tweeted about Vinny.

Sorry, can someone give some context as to what this actually is? What did Vinny have to do with it?

Vinny edited the ''Mad World'' song into the trailer.

Man, that trailer is really good.
 
Vinny's mash-up is great too. Haunting!

Reminds me of that Gears of War trailer a while back. Song feels more at home here though.

I downloaded it a little while ago, and it really does work quite well.  Good job, Vinny.

Vinny edited the ''Mad World'' song into the trailer. "
For reference, here's the original trailer.

That's an amazing trailer.

I'll admit that I teared up a bit.

#16 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

Vinny's is cool and all, but I like the original better.

#17 Posted by TheLastNeo (438 posts) -

Awesome! Way to go Vinny!

#18 Posted by cabelhigh (244 posts) -

Oh man, this song works with everything! Great mashup vinny!

This bombcast needs to happen soon!  

#20 Posted by sixghost (1679 posts) -

The original trailer is a bit better IMO.

#21 Posted by ComradeKhan (687 posts) -

Vinny... Thats all i really need to say... Vinny

#22 Edited by ThatFrood (3375 posts) -

yeah, the music he picked is appropriate for the tone of the trailer.
I wouldn't call it "genius".
Vinny is still great though.

#23 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

someone should do guiles theme next

#24 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -

That is pretty well done. The music ties in well.

#25 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

I definitely like this one better, but the original was amazing already.

I cannot agree.  I personally hated the Mad World trailer for Gears, but with this, it worked incredibly well.  It had the right pacing and tone as a song for this video.  I can understand why they didn't use it in the original (comparisons to Gears and all), but frankly, Vinny produced a necessary mash-up.

The original video has sounds from the game. Vinny's video muted everything with the saturation of song.

Dammit Vinny, you beat me to it-- I guess film school people think alike :P
Anyways, great job, it looks amazing! :)

#29 Posted by shadyspace (457 posts) -

Love Vinny. Original's way better.

#30 Posted by IkariNoTekken (990 posts) -

Never liked this version of the song, it just doesn't sound right to me...plus I have far too many fond memories of listening to the original. 

Also think the original composition used in the standard trailer fits wonderfully, but I can see where Vinny was going with this.

Same here.

Wow, that fit perfectly. I saw this game mentioned on the blogs today, but now I'm extra interested. It's still not evident what's going to be happening in the game, whether it takes place before or after or when this scene takes place. Either way, reminds me a lot of I Am Alive, only it's zombies instead of an earthquake. 
 
I Am Alive And Oh Shit There's Zombies would make a great cross-over. 
 
Also, I do believe I am engaging in a cliche, but this looks like perfect ER material. The combination of no-name publisher, no-name developer and complete weirdness seems to be right on target. So far, the two ER games have either been high-quality or completely batshit insane. This definitely falls in the latter, and it would be super cool if it approached the former as well.

This shouldn't be funny, but it is.
 
Actually maybe it's just this song that's funny in the context of videogames.

#35 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

All the fuck he did was add different music. Why is everyone praising Vinny? Am I missing something? Did he make the trailer itself or something?

#36 Posted by KittenMitten (111 posts) -

Holy shit. The video itself is pretty killer, but that song was such an obvious fit...how did they miss it! Thanks for the making the world an immensely better place Vinny.

#37 Posted by Toms115 (2316 posts) -

video games really are the only form of media where you can effectively advertise something without actually showing any of it.  
 
also, video is somewhat similar to the scientist video by coldplay, just with added zombies.

Vinny for the winny, that was great.

#41 Posted by Fearsome121 (59 posts) -

Euh i'll admit that the song goes well with the video but no way is Vinny's version better than the original imo.

@damswedon: Now that one is badass.

Too soon! I'm just.. not ready for the parodies yet ='( 
Is a really sweet track, though. 
 
Now if someone could speed it up and stick some segments into a loop with this un: 
 
  
   
The axe attacks in a loop with the ''bird bird bird'' would fit insanely well.
#44 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

I'm more interested in all of this than the game itself.

#45 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

I'm glad the parodies came in so quick, because they make fun of people failing to make the trailer better with their favorite Evanescence song or whatever bullshit. 

#46 Posted by ep_driver (436 posts) -

I'm confused here. Everyone is talking about vinny, but there's an IGN watermark in the video. Am I missing something here? 
 
And I agree with some other folks here, whoever did edit this video just added Mad World to it...not that awesome.
