In the rush to trick people on April 1, too many outlets forget the value of actually being funny. Thankfully, Planet Grand Theft Auto is there with our current (genuinely funny) favorite: Chris Tucker (perhaps best remembered from the Rush Hour series) starring as the voice of Niko Bellic in Grand Theft Auto IV.

It's a gag, but it's also kind of a shame this isn't real. It surely would have been Tucker's finest video game performance since the PlayStation's The Fifth Element, which, come to think of it, we're not even sure he was in. Poor guy.
