Lots of game companies are dabbling in live-action trailers to varying levels of success, but Insomniac's attempt at a real-world emulation of Sunset Overdrive doesn't turn out so hot.

The tongue-in-cheek trailer demonstrates what can go wrong when you try to recreate a game with multistory rail grinding, grotesque mutants, and explosives-filled teddy bears. It also features some glimpses of the game's irreverent humor, including a parade float that won't stop swearing and a naïve young actor who's about to get more than he bargained for.

Sunset Overdrive comes out for Xbox One on October 28. For more on the game, watch this eight minutes of gameplay, or learn about the Overdrive upgrade system.
