A skilled enthusiast in the world of Rockstar games has taken creativity to new heights by reconstructing the Grand Theft Auto 6 reveal trailer entirely using LEGO bricks and the meticulous art of stop-motion animation. The impressive video gained widespread attention on social media, joining the ranks of various GTA 6-inspired fan trailers circulating online.
After much anticipation, Rockstar unveiled the official Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer on December 4, offering a sneak peek at their upcoming AAA project. The 90-second promotional video achieved a historic milestone by accumulating over 93 million views within the first 24 hours of release, marking it as the most successful non-music video debut on YouTube. Now, three weeks later, the trailer boasts more than 160 million views, inspiring numerous high-quality fan recreations.
The most recent endeavor comes from YouTuber World of Shrimpy, who embarked on the ambitious task of recreating the first GTA 6 trailer using LEGO bricks and stop-motion animation. The final result is an astonishingly authentic rendition of the original clip, set to the soundtrack of Tom Petty's 1989 classic, "Love is a Long Road," as featured in the official GTA 6 trailer. With meticulous positioning of LEGO sets and figurines frame by frame, the entire trailer showcases the YouTuber's dedication.
Creating this LEGO adaptation of the GTA 6 trailer was no small feat, as confirmed by World of Shrimpy. Reflecting on their accomplishment, the YouTuber shared on Reddit that the project demanded "just over two weeks" of continuous, non-stop work. Fans across social media have applauded the effort, praising the video as "absolutely incredible" and "perfect."
To provide an even more profound appreciation for the attention to detail, World of Shrimpy created a side-by-side comparison video, juxtaposing the official GTA 6 trailer with their LEGO interpretation. The LEGO stop-motion animation surfaced online shortly before another fan showcased their talent by recreating the entire Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer within the GTA 5 game.
Considering the game's release is still over a year away, it's likely that this impressive LEGO-inspired fan trailer won't be the last to captivate social media. If Rockstar's past promotional strategies with GTA 5 are any indication, more official trailers are expected, each likely to fuel the creation of additional fan-made content.
