Cornish Grand Theft Auto spoof racks up over 100,000 YouTube views in less than a week
Cornish comedy writer Colin Leggo has re-imagined the best-selling video game series Grand Theft Auto moving its location from fictional American cities to Cornwall. The spoof video combines scenes from the game with West Country voiceovers and follows one man's hunt for a Cornish Pasty. According to Leggo his friend lent him the game and he found it "overly violent" so instead amused himself by giving the characters comedy accents. He told the press: "I'm satirising the violence in a way because the game is so ridiculous you may as well make it look even more ridiculous by introducing a pasty shop." Since it was uploaded to YouTube last weekend over 100,000 people have watched the comedy clip.
