The Hitman game has been rolling with creative promotions since the first episode released earlier this month, including one where YouTube gamers were able to guide a live actor playing the role of Agent 47, and the a chance to kill an ad with one simple click. Now the game is offering a chance to take the fake assassination contract theme to the next level.
The Choose Your Hit site is open for business, and gives fans the opportunity to choose between one of two forthcoming contract missions that will be added to the game sometime this summer. The catch? They’re both famous actors named Gary.
Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon, original Point Break) and Gary Cole (Office Space, Tallageda Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) are the stars that could be added to the game, depending on how the audience votes.
Both actors plead their case in terms of why they deserve to be taken out by the game’s star, Agent 47, with lines like, “I clip my nails in public transportation.” Over the next few weeks, Choose Your Hit will be updated with more videos from both stars, who will plead their cases and explain why their adversary is an unworthy target. For now, the video above is posted, along with details on each star.
This latest promotion for Hitman might be the best one yet, adding some familiar faces to the mix with a whimsical sense, instead of the seriousness of, “Hey, this guy could actually kill me.” Busey and Cole both look like they’re having fun with it, and as the weeks go on, fans are likely to become more involved.
The first episode of Hitman is available now for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. More episodes and content will be released over the course of the year.
