'Madden NFL 16' trailer marries insanity, vast budget


Here's something completely nuts.

The people behind the venerable Madden video game franchise have released a faux trailer to celebrate the release of Madden NFL 16. Again, it's pretty out there, so trying to describe the plot is kind of pointless. Basically, EA Sports spent a ton of money to put some of the NFL's most famous stars in a commercial for the most ridiculous action movie ever.

If you choose to click on the video above, you will see the following:

» Gronk wears a belly shirt and fires a semi-automatic football canon
» Colin Kaepernick plays Al Pacino from Scent Of A Woman
» Julio Jones karate chops a ninja 38 times (I counted)
» Rex Ryan gets murdered

Did I mention Julio Jones karate chops a ninja 38 times? This is, by far, the best thing.
