New Mortal Kombat X Trailer Directed by System of a Down’s Shavo Odadjian



What a coincidence. I was just thinking about how I wanted to wake up, grab a brush and put on a little makeup, then leave the keys on the table.

Lo and behold, a new Mortal Kombat video extrapolates from this that I distrust its self-righteous suicide. Isn’t it funny how almost any heavy rock song can be made better with the addition of breaking bone and sword-unsheathing sound effects at each break point? In Shavo Odadjian’s trailer for the game, it isn’t just angels that deserve to die. Not that “deserve” is much of a consideration in Outworld.
