Even if you don’t play the game, chances are good that you’ve seen Activision’s hilarious series of ads for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. The premise for the ads is simple: you’ll be so busy playing through the new DLC that you need somebody to replace you in your everyday life. That’s where “The Replacer” comes in.
The first video with noted actor Peter Stormare was successful, so Activision went ahead with a second installment to promote the recent Uprising DLC – this time adding standup comedian JB Smoove as well. This second one was even funnier than the first, and Uprising‘s release on PlayStation 3 and PC platforms this week gave Activision a good excuse to release few minutes of behind the-scenes footage and give us another laugh.
