David Jaffe Shoots Ice Cream Truck With Machine Gun; Invites Fans to Join
Twisted Metal creator and self-proclaimed psychopath David Jaffe released a video in anticipation of the series’ newest installment, which hits stores Tuesday, February 14th. In the video, Jaffe briefly discusses the game before picking up an M249 light machine gun and unloading a few rounds into Twisted Metal posterclown Sweet Tooth’s ice cream truck — and then offers to let you do the same.
Beginning on the day of the game’s release a select number of lucky fans will gain access to two satellite controlled guns which, at their behest, will fire over 100,000 bullets into Sweet Tooth’s truck, reducing it to a smoldering wreck of… well… you get it. Read on to see the video and find out how you can get in on the action.
While this wild publicity stunt will almost certainly catch flak from some circles, it is quite clear that David Jaffe knows his audience — and I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that many who have never played a Twisted Metal game will probably find themselves converted after the gunsmoke clears.
The event will last two days, and will be streamed live. Check out Jaffe’s video below, and be sure to pop over to the official ShootMyTruck website to sign up.
