Activision has released a new trailer for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 ahead of the game’s launch on 28 October and it is hard to stomach. The trailer is the most cliche and cringe thing you’ll watch all week and features a bunch of celebrities shouting a tune which is supposed to be a military Cadence. However, it is more about product placement and showcasing how much money they have (or have made thanks to the fat check from Activision).
The video stars the likes of Nicki Minaj and I have no idea who the other people are. It shows them singing a song called “Squad Up” as the camera flies across various scenes. There’s an airport and some guys are driving around on bikes, there’s a bar where some people are awkwardly bobbing their heads to the horrible song and even an apartment where some guys are sitting awkwardly with their legs way too open to be the natural way to sit on a couch.

Speaking of unnatural things, it doesn’t take a scientist to see how horrible this trailer is. Activision tried to pay off as many celebrities as possible to pretend they know what Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 actually is and they crammed all these distasteful scenes together in a 1:26-minute video.
I also feel better that I am not the only one who absolutely hates the trailer. While you can’t see the dislikes on the video, going into the stats shows that the video is actually sitting over 40k YouTube dislikes. The video is currently sitting on 1.5 million views. I am pretty sure that fans of the series would have enjoyed a high-quality CG trailer a lot more than this trash. If you want to watch it I won’t stop you. You can see it below but good luck.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to launch on 28 October on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
