The inclusion of the footage of the ad for Goat Simulator 3 prompted Take-Two, to issue a DMCA notice and take down the video.

Was it a clever marketing tactic?

The ad for Goat Simulator 3, which was released in November to mixed reviews, featured a character named Shaun who described his in-game duties and then mentioned the leaked GTA 6 footage. The inclusion of the leaked footage, which emerged earlier this year, was seen by some as a clever marketing tactic by the developers. However, it is also possible that the developers were simply poking fun at the situation and did not intend to use the leaked footage in a serious manner.

Regardless of the intent behind the ad, the inclusion of the leaked GTA 6 footage has sparked a conversation about the ethical considerations of using leaked content in advertising. While some may see it as a clever way to generate buzz and attention, others argue that it is a violation of intellectual property rights and could potentially lead to legal consequences.


In today’s digital age, leaks of all kinds are common and can be difficult to prevent. However, it’s important for companies and individuals to consider the potential consequences of using leaked content, whether it be in advertising or elsewhere. The Goat Simulator 3 ad incident serves as a reminder of the importance of respecting intellectual property rights and the potential risks of using leaked content.
