David Hayter and Cam Clarke have come collectively to learn a really particular model of The Night Before Christmas generally known as The Night Before Metal Gear.
If these names do not ring a bell, that is in all probability as a result of you realize these gents by the names of the Metal Gear Solid characters they performed, Solid Snake and Liquid Snake. Yes, the dual snakes have come collectively as soon as extra to unfold a bit vacation cheer by studying a Christmas story basic (with a twist) within the voices of their respective characters.
Their model of the story echoes a few of the beats of the unique story however slowly begins to include most of the occasions and characters from Metal Gear Solid. For occasion, we do not keep in mind the unique Night Before Christmas making reference to a Hind D helicopter, nor did it embrace the road “visions of FOXDIE danced in their heads.” Nevertheless, this model of the story does handle to seize the basic spirit of the unique whereas making some welcome references to one of many best video games ever made.
According to actor Cam Clarke’s Facebook web page, this story was written by David Hayter in lower than a half-hour. There’s no actual motive the 2 determined to do that now, nevertheless it’s fairly nice to look at them seemingly profess their love for this recreation and collection by studying this surprisingly humorous parody stuffed with nods to the now 20-year-old PlayStation basic.
Of course, it is considerably bittersweet to listen to these two work collectively whereas figuring out that there is principally no likelihood we’ll ever hear them in one other Metal Gear Solid.

But hey, we suppose there’s all the time an opportunity that Hayter and Clarke get a cameo in Death Stranding.
