The Last of Us, a PlayStation 3 exclusive, was a major video game phenomenon in 2013. The Wolf of Wall Street was a major Hollywood phenomenon in 2013. This fan-made trailer, which presents The Last of Us in Wolf of Wall Street style, is incredibly well done.
YouTube user jshin, a major fan of The Last of Us who really liked The Wolf of Wall Street’s trailer, put together the brilliant highlight reel. It intersperses key dialogue and frantic action from the game with bold text, replacing the movie’s tagline of “More more more more is never enough” with “How far will you go to survive?”
The combination of these two works surprisingly well. Maybe The Last of Us developer Naughty Dog should consider making this the official trailer for its game. Alternatively, it could consider adding boatloads of cocaine and cash to The Last of Us and see how that works out.
