Fan Recreates The A-Team in Metal Gear Solid V

Metal Gear Solid V

YouTube user Nick Hawryluk has used Metal Gear Solid V to create an intro to a fictional show called The D-Dogs that does a great job of tapping into the collective nostalgia of everyone that watched The A-Team as a child; he even got the telltale VHS static and tracking distortion. Almost as clever as the video is the little story he made up to go with it:

Found this VHS in dad’s attic, sorry the transfer looks so blurry. Used to watch as a kid. Anyone else remember this show?

The D-Dogs is an American action-adventure television series, running from 1984 to 1985, about a fictitious former private army who, after being almost completely wiped out by rival company XOF, return nine years later to work again as soldiers of fortune. After two successful seasons, the show was abruptly cancelled due to showrunner Hideo Kojima’s removal from the project.[1] A long-rumored third season was finally confirmed by project staff years later, and can be glimpsed on Youtube in rough form, where much of the story would have been wrapped up.[2] A video game based on the series was released by Konami in September 2015.

 

Especially cute is how D-Dog is played by two different animal actors. Reportedly, Crowd was very difficult to work with and would show up late and hungover every day in Metal Gear Solid V. Hollywood isn’t for everyone…
