Wyclef Jean’s new video, Fast Car, is basically set in the Burnout Paradise universe.

“When you’re on tour, you have plenty of time, and every artist I know spends time on a tour bus with two things: PlayStation and the recording studio,” said Jean. “The PlayStation brand and Burnout Paradise fit perfectly with my vision for the Fast Car music video. Fast Car is like life – the pace of life is moving so fast, where you can burn yourselves out at times. The concept was about taking a song with such meaning and combining it with technology, but still keeping the essence of what we’re talking about and getting kids to listen to that message. A game like Burnout Paradise helps us get the attention of youngsters.”

Fair enough. You can watch the video here.
