There were a lot of references to real life in the first trailer, which we list here. Now, you can watch the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI. A little before Rockstar Games had planned. We also found some juicy stuff.
All Real Life References Found In Grand Theft Auto VI Trailer
First, there are all the naked guys. It turns out there was a video going around a while ago of a man running away from police while naked next to a gas station. A 2018 news story about an older man working in the yard in nothing but his birthday suit inspired the guy in the thong watering his plants.
The Twitter account CentralGamingHub has collected most of them, and you won’t be surprised to learn that most of the strange images are based on real events.
The Miami Joker
Law enforcement arrested 29-year-old Lawrence Patrick Sullivan in Miami, Florida, in 2017 for carrying a gun without a license.
But Lawrence’s appearance made people nervous in a Miami-Dade courtroom. With his green hair, pale skin, and tattooed scars on his face, he looked a lot like the Joker, Batman’s most famous enemy.
On Tuesday, police arrested Lawrence outside of an apartment complex after getting a call that a man with green hair and tattoos was pointing a gun at cars going by. Following that, he became known as the “Miami Joker“.
Twerking on top of cars
When March 2017 came around, more people were twerking in their cars in Miami. Women were twerking and jumping on the roofs of vehicles so other drivers could see them.
Here is the original tweet that showed the picture above:

Florida man – LeonidaMan
In June 2017, police in Knoxville arrested a man after witnesses said he threw personal items off the balcony of his apartment building, set off the fire alarm, and walked naked up and down Cumberland Avenue.
Similar events have been used as examples in the past, and it’s possible that one was used to create this scene in the game.
It’s not something we expect, but seeing it in-game instead of just in a cutscene would be really funny.
Woman with Two Hammers – LuchaLibreFan
A camera caught a white woman attacking a parked car in a residential area of Chatsworth, Los Angeles, more than three years ago. It’s interesting that this is the only event we couldn’t find in Florida. But if you know of any in Florida, please let us know in the comments.
The woman was reportedly stalking and racially abusing the car owner and his roommates since they moved into their new home in early 2019. There could be a lot of racist language in the game. Perhaps against Lucia, the main character, who is Latina.
Incidents with Crocodiles
One more example is here about that type of crocodile.
In Florida, there have been several times when alligators and crocodiles have scared people. It was up to Rockstar Games to choose which ones to show off in the trailer.
What a funny thing it would be if this happened randomly in the game while we were in these places. Something that Rockstar likes to include in their games.
