Sony Playstation 5 :
If there is something that Grand Theft Auto V has, they are memorable moments and scenes. One of them has become a meme that has ended up going viral on social networks: the moment when Lamar, Franklin’s friend, picks on him for his haircut. That fragment has given rise to all kinds of inventions on the part of the players, where we can see characters like Cell, Vegeta, Darth Vader or Scarface laugh at Franklin thus replacing Lamar. Have now been Shawn Fonteno and Gerald Johnson, the voice actors of the game, those who have wanted to go one step further: have recreated the scene and recorded it on video, so we can affirm without fear of being wrong that the meme has become real. You can take a look at it below:
Franklin’s meme comes true with Fonteno and Johnson
Through the PlayStation Haven YouTube channel, a real-life recreation of the scene with Shawn Fonteno and Gerald “Slink” Johnson, the actors of Franklin and Lamar respectively in the game of Rockstar. What is truly amazing about it all is no longer the dialogue itself, but the level of detail of the video: both actors are dressed as their characters of the game, and location matches Franklin’s playhouse.
Every movement and gesture matches with the original game scene. The video starring Fonteno and Johnson It is set in Los Angeles, city in which the city of Los Santos in which the action of GTA 5 takes place is based. In fact, in the YouTube channel of PlayStation Haven we can find a documentary where the Rockstar title is compared to real life: brand new January 29 at 3:00 p.m. (Spanish peninsular time), and you can see it in the following link.
Franklin and Lamar actors recreate the famous scene from GTA 5 in great detail
Fonteno’s involvement with the Grand Theft Auto saga, meanwhile, comes from afar. He also had a role in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, while he is the cousin of Young Malay, the voice actor of protagonist CJ Johnson. So it makes sense that I would like to participate in the madness of this meme together with the gaming community.
These types of gestures, along with the meme itself, only highlight the popularity he continues to enjoy today in GTA 5. Recall that the game debuted in 2013 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms, and has come to be compared with the current Cyberpunk 2077, highlighting its great realism and the careful animations that it enjoyed for its time. In 2014-2015 the game also debuted on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
