Captain Planet recreated in GTA 5 trades magic rings for middle fingers

You can't get much further from the doofy optimism of Captain Planet and the Planeteers than the suffocating cynicism of GTA 5. That tonal mismatch is just half of why this mod-enhanced recreation of the eco-friendly cartoon intro is so perfect, though. The other half is the fact that Trevor Philips already has an ideal mullet for playing the Captain - just add green dye.

It's yet another strange creation from Merfish, the prolific YouTuber who previously brought us Pokemon in GTA 5. But despite the deadly explosions and superpowered middle fingers, it's still not quite as disturbing as Don Cheadle's take on Captain Planet.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
