EA contacted one YouTube user to shoot and edit them a commercial for Battlefield 3. The team of creators decided to take the skid-steer loader from the Back to Karkand map pack and put it to some good combat use. The result is outstanding.
The commercial has been exceptionally popular in the few days since its uploading. Of course, the channel it’s on pulls in a ton of views on a normal basis, but the more than 2,000,000 people that have seen it since Saturday are evidence of the fact that this clip is good.
The creator’s videos are all, honestly, incredible. If you’ve never seen a clip by the YouTube famous freddiew, head to his channel and enjoy some of the nerdy magic for yourselves. The Battlefield 3 commercial you see above is just the tip of the awesome iceberg, so get set to dig into some solid hilarity.
We love great gaming commercials. This one might actually stand as the best we’ve ever seen. It’s geeky, it’s funny and it’s well made. Kudos to all of the creative folks behind the project.
The Back to Karkand map pack dropped for Battlefield 3 on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms over the last few weeks. If you bought the limited edition of the game, you can land it for free. Otherwise, it’ll cost you $15.
