For those of you that don’t know: today, BBC Two launched the broadcast of The Gamechangers, a movie starring Daniel Radcliffe and and Bill Paxton that takes a look at the controversy surrounding Grand Theft Auto and violent video games in the early 2000’s. Sounds like a cool concept, no? Except Rockstar isn’t really on board with it—in fact, they’re suing BBC over the movie, and have gone on record saying that they had nothing to do with its creation.

Which leads us to this tweet. Basil Brush is a character from British children’s television, in case you didn’t know. It’s basically Rockstar going “u wot m8?”

I’ve always been pissed as to how BBC randomly does illegal shit all the time. Like in all those top gear episodes they used the mass effect 3 theme music. I doubt they took permission or paid EA or the music composer for that.
