This is eerie...

Isn't it eerie how well this song fits this commercial?

It's almost like the video was timed specifically for this song. I mean seriously, the camera changes in perfect timing with the words and beat of the song, and when he says "lowered" Cole lowers his gun. I just found it weird how amazingly it fits the video, not in a 'this song is better' type of way but in a 'Dark Side of the Moon syncing up with Wizard of Oz' type of way.

I don't quite think either fit it at all, I don't really care about the way they try to make the video for it, these will never actually fit something for Gears.

I guess that's true. These moody, emotional commercials don't really fall in line with the chest thumping and face stomping of the game.

devotchka one was freakin' awesome. how it ends is probably one of my favourite songs by them and when i first saw the trailer i was like 'omg! devotchka + gears? holy shit!".

this version is also pretty great. mars volta is an amazing band.

Rorschach cares not about your name. Kills people who confront him.

I just hate the emo trailers of Gears. They have nothing to do with the game. They should make trailers with some really good Metal and not this gay crap.

These commercials are pretty out of character for the games. I just picked a song that I thought fit the commercial. By the way, The Mars Volta is anything but "gay crap". Just look up 'Goliath'. That song is ridiculously intense, especially the second half.
