    Trailer for Farming Simulator Game Inexplicably Shreds

    This is the best utterly nonsensical videogame trailer I have ever seen. I love all the comments about, "What the fuck does this have to do with a computer game about farming? Why is this trailer mostly some dude playing guitar?"



    The track is actually pretty good too.

    Also, the dude may look SRV-ish, but it's more George Lynch Dokken-ish. Although the first bit of the intro riff is pretty much directly lifted from Two Minutes To Midnight.

          Yes. The second greatest out of place rocking track for a really mundane video game.

          Nothing can top "Black Ball" from the Virtual Pool '98 soundtrack. The hardest rocking song ever commissioned for a video game. The combo of the out of place funk bass and the ridiculous hard rocking late 80s glam vocals cannot be topped. I don't know how that vocalist managed that much passion talking about a videogame about pool. It even modulates up at the end, as all songs should.



          Lyrics:
          She's gonna break you
          She's playin' rough
          She's gonna run you down
          And watch you drop

          You can hold your ground
          Till she makes her move
          But when she rolls in
          Ain't nothin' you can do

          Don't look now but you're headed for a fall
          No need to tell ya you ain't got long to stall

          [Chorus] Black Ball Up against the rail
          Black Ball She's layin' your trail
          Black Ball You can fight tooth n nail
          Black Ball But you're destined to fail

          She looks so pure Dressed all in white
          Might make you think You could win this fight
          But she's got an itch That she ain't gonna scratch
          And all she wants now Is send you back to the rack

          Don't look now but she's making her call
          One shot away from taking it all

          [Chorus]

          [Guitar solo]

            Yeah, and was that a tip of the hat and wink to go with the tree rape video game? I tell people all the time, the space-time we are living in has been warped somewhere along the line.

                At least they admit that the timber industry is actually just farming rather than the “first environmentalists” but I digress.

                  This is better than some actual hair metal.

                    Apparently the singer is actually an AOR guy who was in a bunch of AOR bands in the 80s and now makes a living adding his epic AOR voice to joke songs that somehow still end up being better than a lot of real songs.

                    I learned from the comments section he also did this legendary one off joke.



                    The intro vocals up to and including the ridiculous stock "epic 80s tom fill" could be any legitimate hit.

                    THE WINNER TAKES ALL
                    IT'S THE THRILL OF ONE MORE KILL
                    THE LAST ONE TO FALL
                    WILL NEVER SACRIFICE THEIR WILL

                              that black ball song is way better than it has any right to be.

                                Imagine the meeting that led up to that. “Johnson, how’s the search for music talent coming along? Remember, we just need a simple rock song. This is a video game about shooting pool for god’s sake, I mean, am I right?” (Everyone chuckles)

                                ”Yes sir, I um, found a guy...”

                                The boardroom door gets kicked open and a coked up Dr. Rockso looking guy flies in and slides across the floor on his knees with a Kramer strapped on his back “Awwwww yeah-yuh! Are you guys ready to rock!?!? I c-c-c-can’t hear yoooou! I said...are you...ready to rock!!!”

                                  That Black Ball song is actually decent.

                                  I thought it was funny how that trailer actually bothered to CG-animate the guitarist pretty accurately playing the song on guitar, his face, body, and all that.

                                        "Forestry" and "farming" aren't really the same thing.

                                          Eh it's just farming taller plants when you get right down to it.

                                            It's actually one of 8 songs commissioned specifically for the game themed around pool. It's the most "hard rock" one though.

                                            This was from the FMV era of video gaming. If you weren't going to blow a large portion of your budget on getting famous actors for your FMV scenes, obviously you had to splurge on the soundtrack.

                                            Interstate '76 had a costly supergroup formed just for its soundtrack. Brian Mantia is on it, don't know who else, but it's all known guys.
