"Survival" - Eminem

Album: The Marshall Mathers LP2 (2013)
Video Game: Call of Duty: Ghosts (2013)

The commercial for the latest smash in the CoD series represents two milestones in popular culture. Call of Duty's first release on a next generation console and the long awaited return of one of hip-hop's greatest rap artists. It only made sense to pair Eminem with Call of Duty: Ghosts and the result was a tight-fisted, edge-of-the-seat, action packed, thrill ride. Alright, we overdid it with the cliched film descriptors but in all seriousness, Eminem's aggression on the track fits right in with the explosive scenes from the game. This is the perfect example of how to get fans and newcomers ready to queue up on the day one release.
