We haven't gotten past level one in any video game since Berserker, but we have spent whole days watching dudes power through GTA, to the point where the release of IV is more exciting to us than most movies. This video is a time-lapse of the painting of the cover, which took 31 hours over 2 days in a secluded location in Williamsburg by 15 people total, 4 artists, some camera operators, and an art director. That song you hear is Liquid Liquid's "Optimo" and holy shit our nerd radar just broke. Anyway, check the GTA IV site tomorrow at 3pm for the newest trailer, titled "Step Up, Ladies."
