Official Guild Wars 2 trailer is mystifying

The launch trailer features parkour, firewalking and graffiti — with a tiny bit of Guild Wars 2 at the end.

ArenaNet, the maker of Guild Wars 2, has released the official trailer for the game, made with some help from director James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin). Please note that we're not sure whether he actually directed it — the YouTube page merely mentions that McTeigue was "brought on-board to lend his revolutionary zeal and craftsman's eye".

The end result? We'll let the trailer speak for itself, but suffice to say that we were reminded heavily of the commercial that McMahon and Tate produce for Homer's "Mr Plow" business.

"Dad, was that your ad?"

"I don't know!"
