Gears of War 2: Last Day

Seems to be a lot of worthy video game commercials lately. Maybe I'm just their target market and they know what I like!

The name of the song in this commercial is "How It Ends" by Devotchka. The discordant sounds give an edgy feel to the video, and if you've ever played the game, you know that the song fits in perfectly.

I distinctly remember the commercial from the last Gears of War game. It was a very dark and dreary spot with the song "Mad World" by Gary Jules. Once again they have chosen a tune that will capture the interest of the audience and generate attention. I think it has something to do with the executive producer, Jeff Baron. He's been involved in the Nike Fate commercial as well as several other spots with awesome audio.

Ahh... the sweet, sweet sound of curb stomps and chain saws awaits me.
