They promised it. We hardly dared believe it was true. But the new Linkin Park single – The Catalyst – is now available via the medium of a Medal of Honor trailer! Gather your friends, put your phones on silent, and behold the might that is: Mr Beardy Guy in live action! With some shouty tosh in the background.
It’s a peculiar mix of live-action and in-game footage, the two intercut but barely connected, the entire video a meaningless mismatch of things exploding and men falling over. It is apparently the directorial work of Linkin Park’s own Jo Hahn, who sacrifices his art for the glory of advertising, while the band shouts about how awfully hard everything is for them. Do enjoy.
