Who would’ve thought that the long hours spending teenage years playing GTA didn’t go to waste? I told you mom!
Here is a quick recap of the story – while cleaning out my old closet I found an old GTA San Andreas disk that immediately brought back some memories. When joking about it with friends we immediately remembered all the old glitches of the game and how technology changed over the years. As a joke we started mimicking some of the moves one day in the barbershop and next thing you know – there is a camera and were are filming our REAL Life GTA parody J
Obviously we didn’t expect it become and internet hit, we even considered not putting it online at all as we though the people wouldn’t get the joke that we did. Boy oh boy were we wrong….
The video bombarded the internet, was viewed over 17 million time on our facebook page ALONE, not counting internet media giants like 9GAG, UniLad, LadBible and other increasing the view count to over 45mil in total. Here is what some of the more notable media outlets had to say:
“Red Light Barbers is a barbershop in Lithuania, but the guys that run the place are apparently also both into video games and adept filmmakers. In the video above, they recreate an early mission from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and… well… it’s really great.”- Mashable
“The video brilliantly captures some of the quirks of the game, including the awkward mannerisms during cut scenes and a laugh-out-loud moment when, after exiting a car, he mistakenly jumps on the spot.” – The Sunday times
