Destiny cosplaying just went up a level: a Japanese ad for the Destiny DLC expansion pack The Taken King features a live-action Guardian ambling into ... a wash and fold.
In the advert, two friends wait for a third to arrive — who is also presumably running late — and wonder why he has asked them to meet up in a coin-operated laundromat, of all places. It's then that he finally makes his entrance — in full Guardian apparel. He then launches into a full-on monologue on the mission they all must embark on: to save humanity from extinction.
The commercial has a cheeky self-awareness to it, as evidenced by shots of the scene switching over to security camera mode, devoid of bombast, underlying the absurdity of a Guardian in a laundromat.
All in all, the premise of the setup? "He just wants us to play with him[.]"
Here's a synopsis of the DLC expansion for the first-person shooter RPG:
"A dark shadow has fallen over our worlds. Oryx, The Taken King, is hell-bent on vengeance and is raising an army of corrupted "Taken" forces by manipulating the Darkness itself. You must find a way into his impenetrable Dreadnaught ship to defeat The Taken King before he and his dark army consume our civilization and bring our solar system to ruin."
The Taken King will be available for PS4, PS3, XBox 360 and XBox One on September 15. You can preorder it here.
