Gears Of War Song Contest

If you enjoyed the Gears of War commercial (and subsuquent parodies) as much as I have, you’ll definitely want to check out Gears of War Idol, the singing contest around the song from the commercial, Gary Jules’ Mad World. The prize appears to be a copy of the game, so just picture yourself serenading Marcus Fenix, and you could be controlling him soon.

  3. Steven, what are you talking about? It’s not Mad World, seeing as it’s mentioned at least twice here.

    Do you have a link or something to the video that has the “opening song”?
