Weirdness: The Last of Us Almost Ended on a Musical High

Song for slaughter
First shown at PAX, Sony has released a video detailing a rather ridiculous motion capture take of The Last of Us' ending. The finale, which was originally entirely cinematic, takes a strange but wonderful turn as Maureen's actress Merle Dandridge is secretly told to sing her lines by director Neil Druckman.
Incredibly, Troy Baker joins in on the musical fun, prompting a vocal contest. We're not entirely sure which member of the cast has the better singing voice, but that doesn't stop the spot of improvisation from bringing a grin to our faces.
Would you have rather Naughty Dog's gritty and violent tale end with such a flourish? Hit the high notes in the comments section below.
