Titanfall Wrecking Ball Parody Music Video Is Catchier Than You'd Expect

Francis, a.k.a. boogie2988, has decided to merge something you probably love (Titanfall) with something you probably hate (Miley Cyrus). The result will haunt you for days.

He recorded a full-length parody music video for Cyrus' hit song "Wrecking Ball" with Titanfall-inspired lyrics. For example, here's the chorus:

Then it came in like a titanfallI never fucking gamed so hardall I wanted was to kill you allrespawn entertainment, they meched meyeah, respawn, mech me

They're not great lyrics but honestly, Miley's weren't much better:

I came in like a wrecking ballI never hit so hard in loveAll I wanted was to break your wallsAll you ever did was wreck meYeah, you, you wreck me

Francis gets some additional bonus points for his commitment to the performance. He sings the song with his shirt off and, like Miley, decides to lick random objects. In Francis' case, he orally abuses a Titanfall Xbox One controller and a Mountain Dew can. I think licking the Mountain Dew is probably less disgusting than actually drinking it, though.

The "Wrecking Ball" video from Francis is just the latest in a string of musical parodies inspired by Respawn's shooter. Other gamers realized that "Skyfall" and "Wonderfall" also rhymed with Titanfall and decided to record music videos of their own:

The "Skyfall" parody was particularly impressive. The singer's no Adele but has some mighty fine pipes nonetheless. The amount of time put into this video (into all of them, really) demonstrates an impressive level of commitment to the game.

Though Titanfall is a brand-new IP, the shooter has managed to attract quite a following. The beta held last month on Xbox One and PC attracted over 2 million players. The tremendous pre-launch buzz for the game has led analysts to believe it could sell millions in its first month.

The quality of the full version of Titanfall will determine whether it remains a powerful muse for YouTubers in the months ahead. We'll find out much more about the game's lasting appeal tomorrow when the first reviews are published.
