Wavves’ new music video was shot in Grand Theft Auto V

People like taking photos in games like The Last of Us, so perhaps it's no surprise to see Grand Theft Auto V being used to film music videos. That's how the above clip for "Leave" by Wavves came about, anyway. The hazy rock tune featured on GTA V's soundtrack, and developer Rockstar Games put together a contest to direct an official music video using the Rockstar Editor, a feature in the PC version that lets players cut and share clips recorded in-game.

YeahMAP's clip, created without using any unofficial mods, was the ultimate winner; it earned the video maker a keyboard, mouse, and some GTA V gear as well as the status of official director for "Leave." You can see the runners-up and honorable mentions at Rockstar's site.
