Oh dear, oh dear. The Chuckle Brothers playing real life Hitman is disturbingly brilliant

For the half of you on the side of the Atlantic who didn't grow up with the Chuckle Brothers on TV, I'm sorry, I'm about to get super British on you. Remember the real life Hitman (opens in new tab) from earlier in the week from Realm Pictures? Well this time it's the turn of 90s children's entertainment duo Paul and Barry Chuckle to take on a Serbian Arms dealer as Agent 47 and it's just as full of 'to me, to you's as you would expect. Except this time, with murder.

It turns out that the Chuckle Brothers are really into their murder. Like, kill everyone and it's brilliant. Quietly disturbing, but brilliant. Bravo, Square Enix marketing, bravo. If you want to see what Leon thinks of the game itself, the pixelated version that is, read our Hitman review (opens in new tab).
