It’s been a week, and we’re still processing the news. Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA VI), Rockstar’s latest installment, will arrive in 2025 according to its first trailer, which has left half the world speechless and craving to play this popular saga’s new release. With the release of the first official trailer, Rockstar put an end to months of rumors and chatter about this highly anticipated game, of which many details were leaked.
But the trailer has been more important for gamers than we thought. Inspired by this video, which currently has over 140 million views on YouTube, a GTA fan has created a giant figure of Niko Bellic, the charismatic protagonist of GTA IV.
This large cutout is the latest work of Tobyn Jacobs, a well-known user on social media for his incredible paper art displayed on the facade of his house, which tends to be of massive proportions. As seen in the image shared last Thursday on his Twitter account, the immense size of this paper Niko Bellic surpasses that of his own house.
In addition to this photo, Jacobs also shared a video on TikTok where the scale of this large paper figure can be better appreciated. Almost certainly, his new creation is going to be a magnet for saga fans passing through his neighborhood.
This creation showcases the enormous influence the GTA saga has worldwide. However, its influence is so vast that at times it attracts the attention of certain individuals who try to take advantage of its tremendous success at the slightest opportunity. This is the case with the “Joker from Florida,” a man covered in tattoos from head to toe, who has been one of the inspirations for Rockstar in their recent trailer. Seeing an opportunity, he has claimed “his share” from the company for “using his image.”
