With soccer balls and showmanship in his arsenal, Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo knows how to cause a panic—or at least, his digital counterpart in GTA V does. YouTuber TheFifa11videos, whose 3D animated soccer videos blend the sport with pop culture icons, just published a short animation called CRISTIANO RONALDO IN GTA V that follows the digitized soccer star's antics through the streets of Los Santos. While it looks to be in the style of Grand Theft Auto New Zealand, The Greatest Love Story Ever Told, or Black English's music video for "There's a Glow," which screen capture actual footage from the games personalized mods, TheFifa11videos made the short in Cinema 4D. The animation program offered him the freedom to capture Ronaldo taking selfies, Van Damme-ing a pair of trucks, and was pulling off this amazing shot:
