Viral Video of the Day: Parkour Brings Video Game to Life

'Watch Dogs' trailer is a live-action mini-blockbuster

Who doesn't love a little parkour?

Rather than making a standard video game trailer with clips of gameplay interspersed with scenes of computer-generated action, the team behind upcoming title 'Watch Dogs' decided to show us what gameplay would look like in the real world.

Shooting in 4K video and using actors who can scale walls and jump across buildings with ease, the trailer has the look and feel of an expensive Hollywood blockbuster—which is probably not an accident, as there is a movie reportedly in development.

The video game is scheduled for release on May 27.
