Bulletstorm trailer pokes fun at Halo 3

A brand new teaser for Bulletstorm has just released, which pokes fun of the memorable Halo 3 television spot that aired in 2007. Like the original Halo ad, the Bulletstorm promotion features lots of super serious slow pans over realistic action figures in striking poses. Only this time, the camera focuses on baddies getting spiked through the groin and penetrated from the rear. Check out the silly, new Bulletstorm teaser and compare it with Bungie’s less ridiculous advertisement for Halo 3 below.

Blast from the past: Chris Antista shows what he knows about making Master Chief dolls hump

Bulletstorm is scheduled to release on February 22 in North America for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC – and is on track to release in European territories on February 25.

    That was hilarious. So far, the best trailer of 2011.

    Kinda funny. I like both of 'em. Plus one for the Bulletstorm trailer for having actual game play footage at the end.

    I bet that will never get aired in the UK...

    Brilliant and funny. Best ad ever.

    I always thought that Halo 3 ad was a brilliant bit of marketing. I can only think of two things that could possibly make it better: 1. Ten-second shot of some dude puking green slime. 2. If it had f*ck-all to do with the actual game.

    Hahaaaa! Do I really need to say any more?

    I think that just sealed the deal on me ordering Bulletstorm. Anything that pokes fun of Halo is ok in my book, especially those commercials.
  • EnragedTortoise1 - January 12, 2011 12:33 a.m.

    What the Halo ads should have been.
  • TheHouseofQuark - January 11, 2011 11:37 p.m.

    Those halo commercials really misrepresented the game, made it look more thought provoking and classy then it ever was.

    A rather humorous parody. I loved the believe trailer. I have nothing left to say so I'm typing a needless sentence to make my comment look a little longer.
  • farsided - January 11, 2011 10:50 p.m.

    Oh look, wieners. That would be funny if I was 12.

    Oh man, I really hate that Halo commercial... also, the GR spoof is fantastic (sorry for not watching it until today).
  • HumorTumor - January 11, 2011 10:39 p.m.
