After his minor run in with police this past weekend, Lil Wayne is back in the news today, but this time he’s starring in a new promo clip for Ubist’s upcoming Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint video game.
The five-minute trailer finds Weezy and some friends throwing on the headsets and showing f the new 4-player co-op gameplay while Weezy’s song “Uproar” plays in the background. At one point, Weezy, who looks to be playing from a mansion on the beach, interrupts the gameplay by answering his phone, and eventually comes back to win the game for them.
“More than anything, the key point all action is to tell a story. And in this spot, we’re telling a story with these characters, not only in the world the game, but we’re telling the story the characters in the world at home,” director David Leitch said about the clip. “You get to see we have fun juxtaposition with the different characters and their voices… but you’ll also see sort a differentiation in their styles from the game and, obviously, their physicality on the couch to their prowess in the game.”
Look for Ghost Recon Breakpoint to hit stores & retailers next month. Check out the trailer (below).
