When Grand Theft Auto V was released in 2013, Lamar’s “yee yee ass haircut” grilling became popular and attracted gamers as a show of disgust in 2020. The remixes started replacing Lamar with characters ranging from Spongebob to Darth Vader.Now the memes have reached their peak, with the original cast from the game reuniting to recreate it themselves.
This video features GTA 5 actors Slink Johnson and Shawn Fonteno (who provide both voice and motion capture for their characters), illustrating the scene with impressive attention to detail. After being uploaded by the YouTube channel, PlayStation Haven got nearly 2.5 million views in less than 24 hours, proving that memes are still alive and well. The meme has a page on Know Your Meme, including the Urban Dictionary̵7;s definition of “yee yee ass”.
This new video is meant to promote an upcoming web series from PlayStation Haven called GTA V Real-Life Comparisons. The series, hosted by Slink Johnson, compares GTA’s settings to Los Santos with their inspiration in The real world is Los Angeles. The surrounding desert is also featured in GTA V as the second staple in the series to have San Andreas status after Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
