Witness Aisha Tyler's unintentionally hilarious cameo in Watch Dogs

She's just entered... the danger zone.

New footage has emerged from Ubisoft's highly-anticipated open-world cyberpunk adventure Watch Dogs that shows off a cameo by actress and comedian Aisha Tyler.

Tyler plays herself in the game, as following her pulls up her profile as a comedian, actor, talk show host, and author. Amusingly, it notes her hobbies as "gamer and bourbon enthusiast." According to the game she has $4.3 billion dollars, which seems a bit high, but this is the future so one must take inflation and future seasons of Archer into account.

One doubts Tyler will be in the game much, given the way this clip ends with an awkwardly pantomimed backstep followed by a garbage truck smashing into her avatar. Why she couldn't jump an extra step back is beyond me, but I guess she thought being on the sidewalk was safe enough. She was wrong. And how come there's no body? Did the truck propel her corpse off-screen or was she kidnapped? Her character is a multibillionaire after all.

Tyler is no stranger to video games. Previously she was in Halo: Reach and she also hosted this year's Ubisoft E3 press conference.
