How the Black Ops 2 live-action 'Surprise' trailer was made

Yeah, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is already out, and doing incredibly well in sales already, but that hasn't stopped Activision from dropping a new video on us, albeit a pretty good one. We get a behind-the-scenes look at how the live-action-trailer-turned-TV-spot was created.

Yeah, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is already out, and doing incredibly well in sales already, but that hasn't stopped Activision from dropping a new video on us, albeit a pretty good one. We get a behind-the-scenes look at how the live-action-trailer-turned-TV-spot was created.

Starring such notables as Robert Downey, Jr., iJustine and FPS Russia, and directed by Guy Ritchie, the trailer took a comical look at the one-upsmanship in the game and how someone in the game is always better. Ritchie said that "each revelation should trump the last revelation" of who is in the crosshairs.

      I love how you don't provide a link to the original trailer. Seriously, that's awesome.
