Saints Row IV Trailer Promises Your Independence Day

Keith David is here to free the whole f*ckin’ planet from anal-probing aliens.

Bill Whatshisface gave a pretty stirring speech in Independence Day, but when it comes to throwing off the yoke of evil oppressors from beyond the moon, I’ll give my vote to Admiral Anderson any day. Admiral Anderson being Keith David, of course, he of the booming voice and commanding presence, who never met an alien invasion he wasn’t willing to punch in the junk.

I confess that I’ve never actually played a Saints Row game because the series always struck me as a hyper-absurd Grand Theft Auto knock-off, but the promos for Saints Row IV – including this one – really have my attention. It’s as if they’ve gone so far into the realm of the ridiculous that they’ve managed to bend the space-time continuum back into itself, transmuting ultra-stupid into mega-awesome. Or something like that.

All I know for sure is that when it comes time to lay the biggest smackdown in the history of mankind, there’s no-one I’d rather have at the wheel than Keith David. Hopefully with his sunglasses on. Saints Row IV is being developed for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and hits the shelves on August 20.
