I'm sure somebody could tell you that a parody of Baywatch made in Grand Theft Auto is a telling comment on society - in fact I'm sure it is - but it's for sheer absurdity that I like this video!

It's certainly not entirely accurate, due to the limitations of the game, but it's a good effort and wins marks for effort and comedy value. It also veers of into a array of gratuitously violent acts - of which I especially like the newly included 'shooting at seagulls' scene, which I think would have added to the Baywatch intro. Here's the original for comparison:


Seagulls aside, an entire scene has developed from making films within computer games called Machinima. There are now a host of websites and resources dedicated to the work form.
