You have got to see this 4K video of a Mad Max-style paintball war

We’ve shared all kinds of 4K video clips from YouTube and Vimeo to the site but we can safely say that few of them are quite as creative as the one you’re about to watch.

Creative video maker Devin Super Tramp has released (as of August 18th) an absolutely epic tribute video to the greatest action movie of the summer, Mad Max: Fury Road. The tribute mixes up elements from the movie and that awesome pastime known as paintball shooting in the best possible way.

Instead of the arrows, guns, full-sized trucks and fire of the original movie, the YouTube tribute video features a bunch of dust-caked men and women just hammering the heck out of each other with paint ball guns while riding GoKarts and decked out pickup trucks alongside wickedly modified dune buggies.

This isn’t the first time that Mad Max: Fury Road has been the “victim” of parody during this summer. Others such as comedy star Conan O’Brien have also played up Mad Max themes in their own publicity stunts. And to be honest, we’re not sure if we’d even call these parodies anything but compliments to the absolutely awesome movie itself, a great remake of the early 80’s classic with Mel Gibson.

But going back to the paintball video, it’s the first in a series of battles made by the creative genius of Devin Super Tramp. In this particular piece of 4K footage, he suggests that, with enough shares, he’ll happily make a whole collection of such 4K clips out in the desert. Watch for yourself and decide if sharing is what this video merits.

We definitely think so.

The video is, as we already said repeatedly, shown entirely in 4K so take full advantage of its awesomeness and watch it in full UHD on your 4K TV or Nvidia Shield or whatever other 4K display and media device you might have on hand.

As for the filming itself, it was actually done with a RED Dragon camera, in 6K resolution and then compressed down to 4K ultra HD for posting to YouTube.

Watch……….and enjoy the awesomeness of dust, dune buggies and paintball madness.
