WATCH: ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Viral Video Recruits Cobra Commandos
There’s a certain ruthless terrorist organization that is determined to rule the world and they want YOU to enlist. We have the details after the break.
Following the 2013 Super Bowl, which included action-packed trailers from Iron Man 3 and Fast and Furious 6, Paramount Pictures looks to kick off the hype for G.I. Joe: Retaliation by launching a new viral campaign.
The clip plays like an army recruitment video except it’s championing the wrong team. You can see the spot for yourself below:
The Retaliation storyline continues after the horrible first G.I. Joe movie and sees COBRA member and master of disguise Zartan replacing the President of the United States. With Cobra Commander in charge, the bad guys frame target the Joe’s as terrorists and it’s up to The Rock, Bruce Willis and Magic Mike himself, Channing Tatum, to bring them down.
The flick’s new website, CobraSpecialForces.com, has a bunch of mind and strategy exercises to determines whether or not you have what it takes to team up with COBRA.
Do you have what it takes? G.I. Joe: Retaliation storms into theaters March 28.
