The Sopranos Intro Re-Created in Grand Theft Auto V


Here’s a very creative reenactment of the opening credits of The Sopranos, remade in Grand Theft Auto V. If there’s any game that’s appropriate to do this in, it’s a GTA game.

You can’t smoke in a moving car in GTA the way Tony Soprano does in the opening credits, so they had to use a green screen and put it in later. They also had to use a cigarette, which is a little less gritty than Tony’s cigar.
