Deliciously Twee Metal Gear Solid V Fan Trailer Wrangles in Wes Anderson

Yes, I’ll have my convoluted story served to me with quirky cinematography and directing, please.

“Snake, do you think love can bloom even on the battlefield?”

It feels like common knowledge now Wes Anderson is a filmmaker with unique dialogue and camera direction. His signature deadpan wit and overly twee aesthetics make for a signature style unlike no other. Comedic filmmakers caught hold of Anderson’s tropes and made for several intriguing takes on popular series. Sure, some slapped Anderson’s use of French musicians and text editing over trailers; some managed to create trailers of their own.

Take Jacob Rich for example, he and his motley crew delivers the most recent “Wes-Andification” series with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Rich answers the question of “What If WES ANDERSON Directed Metal Gear Solid V?” Well, it certainly features Skull Face, Kazuhira Miller, Punished Snake, (Clothed) Quiet, and the rest of the gang taking part in cutesy adventures in Afghanistan.

Metal Gear Solid V, Wes Anderson, Metal Gear Solid, Hideo Kojima,

On Jacob Rich’s channel, this is his first parody video. His video channel typically fills with a random assortment of film analysis coupled with video game-related rankings. Tactical Espionage Anderson sure does rile up some positive feelings. Based on Konami’s recent developments, it might be a grand idea for Konami to reel in Anderson for the inevitable Metal Gear Solid reboot; however, The one detail Rich sorely missed in transferring Anderson to Metal Gear is a telling one. Did anyone else notice the strong lack of Bill Murray in the trailer?
