This Yakuza/The Sopranos Mash-Up is Stupid and Low Effort and We Love It

Yakuza Sopranos

We absolutely love this Yakuza/The Sopranos mash-up video and it makes us feel a little bit guilty.

We’ve previously highlighted the work of HuffingtonPants and eli_handle_b.wav who blend video footage from TV shows, movies and so forth with games, putting in some major effort to get things right. Then there’s this Yakuza/The Sopranos mash-up.

Put together by YouTuber MissHannya, it has The Soprano’s Paulie Walnuts wandering into a strip club and seeing. Well, we won’t spoil it for you, but if you can manage to watch it without seeing the video title you’ll have a better time of it.

But it just goes to show that it can be simplest, stupidest things that raise a laugh. We’ve been watching this again and again and again and it’s just got funnier with each viewing. Part of its charm is that it is such a low-effort piece of work.

You can watch this stupid, stupid clip above – see if you find it as entertaining as we do. If you’ve not played Yakuza it won’t be as funny but even so it should raise a chuckle or two

And if you haven’t played Yakuza, the games are currently on Xbox Game Pass and they’re also heavily discounted on the Xbox store. 

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
