Yesterday

Were you disappointed when you watched the ‘Yesterday’ trailer for The Division? I was. I thought it was going to be a trailer that made good use of a licensed track. Instead, what we got was a bland, forgettable CGI trailer about something I can’t even remember any more.

In fact, I was so disappointed that I took the licensed track I thought was missing, and recut the trailer. It’s not perfect, and the end doesn’t have the punch that I really wanted, but for the most part it’s more the trailer I wanted than before.

Some people may disagree. But sometimes, the most obvious choice is the most effective one.

Some people take it further. Way further. (more…)
