Cardboard Box Wedding: Watch The Latest Japanese Commercial For 'Metal Gear Solid V'
May 8, 2015 – 09:54 am

Metal Gear Solid V: Cardboard Box WeddingWith just a few days left before launch, it's safe to say that gamers around the world are excited for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It's been five years since the last proper entry in the series — and after years of trailers and demos, fans just want to get their hands on the game.

Of course, as with any triple-A game launch, the game's marketing is everywhere. Launch trailers, short commercials, posters, Twitter ads — at this point, it's hard not to see something about the game. As always, some of the marketing is better than the rest (people care a lot more about a lovingly crafted trailer than some random Twitter post about the game), but there's one video that manages to stand above every other piece of MGSV media.

If there's a one-stop shop for weirdness anywhere in the world, it's Japan. It's no secret that the Land of the Rising Sun is known for its absolutely bizarre takes on pop culture — when it gomes to MGSV, that definitely holds true.

To put it simply, most people would expect a trailer for the game to be full of action and explosions, not a wedding between two cardboard boxes.

Before you ask, yes — that is a real trailer, produced by Sony, for Metal Gear Solid V. Said trailer is based around a family of people who inexplicably live inside cardboard boxes, and only emerge once the game is ready to play.

Sure, a lot of the commercial will be lost on anyone who can't speak Japanese — but even at the most basic level, the commercial is just plain weird. Why are these people living in boxes? Have they been trapped in there since Peace Walker was released? How did they manage to change into a wedding dress and a tuxedo while still inside their boxes?

WHAT IS HAPPENING

Who knows — maybe the game will conclude with a giant cardboard box-style wedding and this is just Konami's way of opening players up to the idea. Given how bizarrely some of the Metal Gear Solid games have ended, it's not that crazy an idea.

If you're still trying to wrap your head around Metal Gear as a whole, we've got a handy Beginner's Guide and timeline to help clear up some of the series' weirder parts.
