  • The God of War: Ascension Literal Trailer. Despite being hilarious in some parts, the lyrics that were added to the commercial makes the whole scene ten times more heartbreaking.
    • "Oh well, at least you'll be close to me now..." I fall as my skin turns to ash and, Then so does my fashion; Every-THING, But the RING, As he CLINGS, To the thought of his daughter, As her ash clings to him... It's like an everlasting, morbid necromancer hug.
