Saints Row: The Third teaming up with Adult Swim’s Tim and Eric for awkward comedy

We’ve seen so many screens and videos for Saints Row: The Third that we’re almost overwhelmed by the extreme absurdity of it all, and now THQ seems to be trying to push us over the limit of craziness we can take. The publisher is teaming up with Adult Swim superstars Tim and Eric for what’s sure to be one of the weirdest things ever created to sell a game. Here’s just a taste of Tim and Eric’s Saints Row insanity…

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim crafted some of the strangest (and funniest) late night cable TV of the last decade, and they seem like a great fit Saints Row to bring to life. The above video was just a preview of the full-length live action special the pair created to make Professor Genki’s deadly reality show to life. The full thing will appear around the internet November 4. Just make sure to watch out for Spagett!

BONUS VIDEO WEIRDNESS: We also got a new Cherished Memories video for Row, this time demonstrating the dangers of driving a motorcycle.

    Gotta say SR3 is looking insanely awesome. After the horrible controls/engine of SR2, I wrote off the series, but if SR3 has excellent controls, it could be crazy fun.

    Tim and Eric, some of my favorite comedians of all time? If they're actually in the game, I'll buy it, day one.

    I'm confused. What the hell did I just watch?
  • ObliqueZombie - October 27, 2011 6:06 p.m.

    A match made in heaven.

    Already pre-ordered. So excited for this! As for the whole GTA vs. Saints Row argument, quite frankly they're completely different, and one isn't better. It's just personal choice.

    Tim and Eric?...really? They couldn't of got someone who is, you know, actually funny?

    You know who disagrees with you JayQ? Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis, Paul F. Tompkins, David Cross, Bob Odenkirk, Will Forte, Will Ferrell, Bill Hader, John C. Reilly, Paul Reubens, Brian Posehn, Weird Al, Fred Willard, Jeff Goldbum, Aimee Mann, Rainn Wilson, Michael Ian Black, The Flight of the Conchords, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen, Ben Stiller, and Paul Rudd, just to name a few. Let's not talk down to hardworking comedians who are friends with probably every funny person you like. If SR3 had gotten Jeff Dunham or Dane Cook to do their commercial, you'd be in the right. But they didn't. They gave two absurd cable-channel weirdos money and creative freedom. You don't have to like their show, but you also don't have to take a sh**ty tone about it.

    please, give any of them money and they will be on ANY show. It's not that they think they are funny or are friends, it's money. And I'm sorry I offended you, by looking at you picture I'd say you think Tim and Eric are the greatest comedies of all time, or you just have the same non-funny sense of humor.

    I was on the fence about whether I should buy this game, but the fact that they gave Tim and Eric money to make something absurd pushed me over the edge. Can't wait to play it.

    And my interest in this raises slightly yet again.
