Surprise: A-list actors in ad for Black Ops 2 video game

Guy Ritchie-directed clip features Robert Downey Jr. and other Internet stars

I'm not a big fan of military blow-em-up games like Call of Duty, but apparently a lot of people are excited for the next version of the game, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.


Watch this cool ad featuring Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark in a jet!), Jack Black Danilo Di Julio and others, directed by Guy Ritchie. Others appearing in the ad include Omar Sy (a comedic actor from France and a Call of Duty fan), Internet stars FPSRussia and iJustine.

The game comes out on Nov. 13, for those who like those kind of shooters.
