Seriously though. Can you imagine: The Last of Us Musical.

Green Day did something amazing with the their American Idiot Album turning it into a musical.

Why not this?

They were incredible BTW!!!

Ezz20131640d ago

well, if that was my last day on earth i would love to meet that Breast in your avatar ...err...i mean that girl

SeraphimBlade1640d ago

Well, at least I can celebrate it with some FUNGUYS :D

Y_51501640d ago

iamnsuperman1640d ago (Edited 1640d ago )

Damn. I weirdly would have liked to have that scene.

The Last of Us m....(cough you know what I mean if you watch the video cough)

Glad they didnt go with the camp version..

iamnsuperman1640d ago (Edited 1640d ago )

I didn't think it was "camp". It was actually quite powerful. Marlene signing, unexpectedly, was captivating and very powerful. It did tail of into ridiculousness with the bang bang bit. Musicals are not always "camp"

1nsomniac1640d ago


If you don't think that was camp I would question what it is you do actually find camp.... There was absolutely nothing 'Powerful' about that at all.

It was a pathetic, camp, hipster, alternative, scene. That didn't work on any level. It was just cringe-worthy & horrible & I wish they just would of kept it a secret instead of ruining the game with it.

"I wish they just would of kept it a secret instead of ruining the game with it."

how did seeing an alternate ending that didnt even make into the full retail game ruin the game for you? People just take things to the extreme for no reason at times.

Thatguy-3101640d ago

Exactly it's called having fun. It's good that it's not all just about work. They get to mess around and stuff. The whole crew were just laughing their butts out in the background. Would have done the same.

Neo-Axl1640d ago

Not very open minded are you, it was a funny blooper, nothing serious. Take the time to enjoy it for what it is.

GryestOfBluSkies1640d ago

that was amazing. i cant believe they all kept a straight face!
