If you search “Sopranos opening” on YouTube, you’ll see several fan-created reenactments of the HBO series’ iconic opening scene which mainly consists of driving along a highway, passing a lot of buildings on the side of said highway, and finally pulling into a driveway, all while puffing on a huge cigar, paired with the song “Woke Up This Morning” by Alabama 3.
YouTube user 8-Bit Bastard creates a stunningly spot-on rendition of the opening using Grand Theft Auto V gameplay footage. The video is almost an exact recreation of the original scene. There’s absolutely no indication that the game is set in Los Santos, a replica of Los Angeles, Ca., rather than New Jersey, where the actual series takes place.
If you’re a true Sopranos fan, you might end up watching this more than once.
