When Core Design and Eidos Interactive were getting ready to ship Tomb Raider III in 1998, they recruited Lara Croft herself to promote the game. The resulting animation was…something else.

It’s hard to overstate just how big a deal Lara Croft was in her heyday. Sure, she’s gotten all gloomy and grimy recently, but it was hard to go anywhere without seeing the adventurer’s smiling face during peak Tomb Raider Mania.

Given the circumstances, I guess anyone would need a drink or two to get through some silly promotional video.
