Plot / Description
This commercial for Call of Duty: Black Ops II shows people playing the video game as if they were characters in the game itself (rather than sitting on their couch with a controller). It begins with a guy sitting on a tire beside a blown up truck. He is messing with a computer on his wrist and whistling like nothing is wrong even though he's in a war zone. From inside a building several blocks away, someone has this guy in their rifle scope. He is about to get shot when a girl comes up behind the guy with the rifle with futuristic throwing axes, saying only, "Surprise". As she is about to throw an ax to kill the guy, someone shoots it out of her hand, and he also says "surprise". A different guy is behind him with robotic tanks pointed at him, and he says "surprise" too. Behind this guy is Robert Downy Jr. in a hovering jet who surprises him. Someone has a drone tracking down Downy's jet with the word "Surprise" spraypainted on it. Back on the ground, a woman on a horse throws a grenade at two guys, saying "surprise boys" as she rides by. The girl on the horse is surprised by a guy with a set of flying helicopter drones, and this guy is, in turn, surprised by a missile falling from the sky. That missile was dropped by the guy who was sitting on the tire at the beginning with his wrist computer. As he gets up to walk away, a hoard of zombies comes up toward him, and he's happy about it as he cocks his shotgun.
