The premiere trailer for BioShock Infinite was such a tease. A beautiful new environment, a mysterious and solemn-looking new character, and lots and lots of propaganda.

But there's something great about this 8-bit version that washes out all the detail and gorgeous lighting. I think it's the protagonist's growls as he flails through the air that gets me. And yet, when Booker DeWitt's pixelated form falls in slow motion through blocky roses to that really soft music, it still manages to touch on that emotional feeling from the trailer it's parodying. Go figure. And then Elizabeth gets King Kong-ed and everything goes silly again.

Now for comparison, check out the original below.
