VIDEO: Epic ‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ Prank Involving Special Operators, 5.11 Tactical

Ubisoft teams up with Austin-based Rooster Teeth and 5.11 Tactical for hilarious prank to promote 'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands.'

It’s been a couple of weeks since “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands” hit shelves, and in our completely unprofessional — as it pertains to video games — opinion, it’s awesome. After all, it’s got insane graphics, it boasts a ginormous open world and the multiplayer component is off the charts. And who wouldn’t want to take down a drug cartel from the comfort of home?

As one would expect, there’s been a huge marketing campaign behind this tactical shooter. One of the more unique ads we’ve seen thus far involves the guys over at Rooster Teeth, an Austin-based web video production company. We don’t want to spoil it too much, but let’s just say it’s a prank involving an aspiring filmmaker, a shady “private investor,” a team of Ghosts outfitted by the fine folks over at 5.11 Tactical, and a massive house that looks like it’s straight out of the third act of “Scarface.” Watch the video above to see the hilarity ensue.
