A few weeks ago I wrote about Grand Theft Auto players describing the movement of planes in random GTA promotional art as evidence of the upcoming reveal of GTA 6, which was timed to intersect with the waning gibbous moon. I thought the hype might die down after GTA 6 failed to materialize according to the lunar cycle, but it turns out this rabbit hole has no bottom.
Come now, look at the promotional image of Rockstar that was just posted New Red Dead Online costume. To me, that image looks like a strange man wearing a mask, looking at you through piles of skulls. Standard Halloween game fare. But it turns out that when you draw lines on them with MS Paint, you end up with the following.

One question all of this raises, of course, is how much people urinate. It is clear that some rumormongers are involved, but it is difficult to determine the ratio of hoaxers to true believers. Maybe everyone involved would laugh. Is Rockstar laughing too, trolling fans with suggestive negative space in trailers, and then absorbing the frenzy? It will certainly be associated with the brand, as a growing number of people on Xitter and Recitera.
October 24th is a great chance to expect a teaser for Grand Theft Auto VI.
listen to me:
Remember the t-shirt added in GTA5 for the 10th anniversary that read: “Rockstar says relax”? Well, that’s a reference to the song “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, which was… pic.twitter.com/1Dc75PyzHF

What is the postmodern stage in which no one is the subject of jokes anymore? The answer seems to be: GTA 6. More because we don’t understand it.
