There was a cool, live-action campaign for Modern Warfare 3 showing all the different people that play Call of Duty, hint: it’s not just guys in their 20’s. This year with the launch of Black Ops 2, the live-action goodness is back, directed by Guy Ritchie and featuring Robert Downey Jr.
Reflecting the global phenomenon that is Call of Duty, a franchise which appeals to both mass and enthusiast audiences, several additional celebrity cameos round out the cast. Omar Sy, one of France’s top comedic actors, and a huge Call of Duty fan in his own right, makes an appearance, and core gaming fans will recognize Internet phenoms FPSRussia as well as iJustine.
The ad started a national roll-out last night but if you haven’t had a chance to check it out, it’s below. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 comes out November 13th and we will have our review up shortly after that. Let’s hope it’s better than Medal of Honor is though.
