If you missed Sunset Overdrive, Xbox Game Pass could be a good way to get your hands on Insomniac Games' classic open world game for Xbox One.

Microsoft is continuing its comedic advertisement campaign for the Xbox Game Pass service, and this time around it’s themed after Insomniac Games’ Sunset Overdrive.

The commercial has the usual store clerk that appeared in previous spots drinking the Overcharge drink that is at the base of the game’s story and then burping it out right on the camera, pretty much like it happens in the game.

Of course, Sunset Overdrive is one of the games currently available as part of the service, which could be good if you missed it when it was made part of the Games With Gold lineup back in 2016.

Xbox Game Pass is currently available for $1 or €1 (depending on what continent you live on) for the first month for new subscribers for another few days, until January 5th. It offers about a hundred Xbox One and Xbox 360 backward compatible games, including staples like Halo 5: Guardians and Gears of War 4, for a recurring price of $9,99 a month, and lets you download and play them as much as you like until they’re rotated out of the line up.

Microsoft executives have mentioned that the service enjoyed a strong start among customers. You can check out the video below.
