Viral Video of the Day: Terminator 2, Grand Theft Auto V Style

Shot-for-shot remake of movie's key action sequence done with online gameplay

Game online if you want to live—or if you want to recreate scenes from your favorite movies.

That’s what John Chapman did when he directed a major chase scene from James Cameron’s 1991 action classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Chapman and friends joined online gameplay in Grand Theft Auto V—set in the fictional city of Vinewood, which bears more than a passing resemblance to the real Los Angeles—and painstakingly staged a near shot-for-shot re-creation of the T-1000 (Robert Patrick) chasing young John Connor (Edward Furlong) through the streets of L.A.

No one was harmed during the filming, but judging by the blooper reel at the end, there were a lot of respawns.
