Check out the article on GTAV.net: This is not a Rockstar Games commercial

QUOTE
A GTA V ad was shot during the weekend in front of my building. This are some photos I took.

QUOTE
I've updated the album with 2 more photos, the last photo shows some guys wearing colorful hoodies, they walked behind the suit guy at all times.


I can't seem to find these anymore. Anyone have a link?

From this topic.

From the OP over there:

QUOTE
Brief description of the ad:
The guy in the suit of the last photo exits the totaled car while talking to the camera, as he makes his way out, the car explodes and he walks by the car under the trees while some other effects are set behind him (I managed to see these in a monitor) The shooting took place on Saturday April 20th and lasted until late Sunday.


QUOTE
The staff was very open about people walking by and taking pictures. Since the shooting blocked my garage door for quite some time, they offered me to sit in the... tent? where they keep the monitors and watch the end result, they even offered some coffee!


QUOTE
They were all very nice people, offered the neighbors apologies for all the noise during the night and gave the admins of the building some money for the trouble (around 450USD if my conversion is right, This was in Mxico) so, overall it was a nice experience.
Another thing i noticed is that people thought they were shooting a movie, it wasn't until the GTA V banner was put that a few realized what they were looking at but for most people it didn't ring a bell.


QUOTE
One of my friends took a video during a rehearsal, I'll ask him to upload and i'll post later!

Update on the video:
QUOTE
My friend is in school right now sad.gif As soon as he gets it uploaded i'll deliver. smile.gif


On why he's sure why it's for an advertisement, and not for example something similar to the GTA 2 live action stuff:
QUOTE
I asked to the staff that was around.


On the subject of car brands:
QUOTE
Yea, the totaled car had no brands, the police car also didn't have any logos on it. There was also an old-Charger-like car that I didn't managed to get a picture of.
The chevy on the 3rd picture wasn't part of the ad, it was a guy trying to get his car into the garage.


On the crashed car:
QUOTE
They had an already crashed car towed in, the pole is a prop. So as the trees that cover the car, they also had some fake rubble (styrofoam) that reminded me of the leaked pictures from Transformers 3 back in the day.



The ever enigmatic Adriaan had this to say:
QUOTE
This is a SONY commercial for PlayStation. It has nothing to do with Rockstar Games or GTAV.

Sony decided to place the V logo in their ad.


When confronted with Adriaan's post, Reddit's OP has this to say:
QUOTE
I asked one of the guys in the crew and they told me it was a GTA V ad, that's all I know :S

And this:
QUOTE
They were pretty open to talk about what they were shooting, don't know where he gets that. At the end of the day i just posted this because i know GTA is big around here smile.gif thought you guys might like it.


UPDATE:
This is why the photos were removed from imgur by the OP on reddit:
QUOTE
Sorry guys, I just had a visit from the production company that asked me very politely to take the photos down. He said this was just a quarter of the whole effort and therefore they would like to keep it under wraps. I'm taking down the pictures as i type.

Eh, where was this taken? I doubt they would make a live action GTA ad so early into marketing.

The police cars don't look like LSPD cars, and what is this COD having real life ad's?

There are GTA banners in the pics so it's definitely legit. I'm interested to see where it leads, I doubt they've only filmed here, it'd be a bit strange to have a short ad with a guy we've never seen in the game.

I wonder what Rockstar's take on this one was. Why an advertisement? Thoughts?

It's obviously Michael.

I'm very skeptical of this. Aside from the V poster on the wall, nothing indicates that it has anything to do with GTA V. Plus, Rockstar has never done a real life commercial before. All their commercial's have just been gameplay footage.

This looks like an add to promote one of the big heists, like we saw in trailer 2.

IS that a gun in his hand (last pic)

This is a really cool find. It would be cool if they made 3, one for each protagonist.

I understand.

Non-gameplay trailers for AAA games seem to be the trend nowadays though, and the story could very well be legit.

I just wanted to post this the second I saw the post over at reddit; it could be huge if this turns out to be real.

Was this filmed in the US? doesn't look like it to me.

My guess would be a non-US game store or retailer making an ad for GTA rather than a R* ad, surely they wouldn't be so casual about recording it? Seems a bit odd to me.

It doesn't make sense in general anyway, real name-brand cars and obviously real people? I cannot imagine this is going to be a R* production.

Well it would fit in the PR campaign.

My guess is to keep costs down, and the weather matches the setting.

edit: Raavi makes a good point about less strict regulations.

This could very well be real. Filming an ad in LA is very difficult, why do you think a lot of movies (outside scenes) are filmed in Canada and Mexico? Regulation is much less strict there.

Yeah, but come on how much does shooting an add cost in LA?

Maybe they're doing a split commercial between real life footage and game footage? I think that'd be cool and may explain why the next trailer is taking so long to come out..
