The Catalyst

Check this out.  Linkin Park member Joe Hahn directed a music video for their newest song The Catalyst.  It’s the main song used in the Medal Of Honor advertisement campaign.  Music with movie tie-ins is old news, but we’re only really seeing it begin to happen for gaming now.  Eminem did it for Call Of Duty: Black Ops, we did it, regrettably, with Marilyn Manson for Dragon Age, Linkin Park now with the new Medal Of Honor.  But this is the actual music video for the song, and it’s made up of game footage and live action featuring the main character from the game.  This much is new for gaming/music tie ins.  I can tell they were going for something more poignant than a simple music tie-in business deal.  Not sure if they achieved it or not, will have to watch it a few more times.  What do you think?
