Saints Row IV: Gat Out Of Hell has gotten the Broadway musical treatment.

Merry Christmas from Deep Silver and IGN. After the over the top insanity that is Saints Row IV, old Beezlebub singing his issues to his daughter, while Johnny Gat croons about ol Scratch’s demise is about the only direction the series could possibly go in. So naturally, Deep Silver went there and did it in the best way possible.

Recalling the power struggles of Phantom of the Opera, the trailer contains not one hint of self-awareness; it is hilarious in its honesty. Hearing Satan start belting out the beats like a smooth voiced Taye Diggs circa mid-90s is glorious, and the over melodrama from his daughter Jezebel is so unbelievably corny that only Saints Row could ever pull it off. It works because it’s not supposed to work.

All of this is keeping in line with the jokiness of Saints Row IV. After all, the game features a much loved dub-step gun. Why not a roaring, show stopping musical number?

I so rarely ask the internet anything, but dear readers, if you are in any way musically gifted, I would love to see a cover video of the song. Make it happen. Please.

Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell is the standalone expansion to Saints Row IV. The game sends Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington down into hell itself to rescue the leader of the Saints. It hits shelves on January 20, 2015 for PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Behold! The Saints Row musical number.
