Metal Gear Solid Voice Actor Sends Us Through the Looking Glass With a Reading of the Mueller Indictments

How much weirder can 2018 get?

The Metal Gear universe is known for its tangled conspiracies, which makes it that much stranger to hear voice actor Paul Eiding read the Mueller indictments in the voice of Colonel Roy Campbell.

Listening to Eiding read off Mueller's indictments will immediately throw you back to Hideo Kojima's universe, where each chapter inevitably ended with a mysterious conversation over a black background and even more questions.

In the world of Metal Gear Solid, Roy Cambell is the elder statesmen of the bunch, frequently conferring with Snake by radio and giving him instructions.

Campbell is one of the few characters that Snake considers to be a trustworthy friend, which perhaps adds a bit of a weight to Eiding's reading of Mueller's text.

Roy Campbell even kind of looks like Robert Mueller.

As it happens, Metal Gear has been in the headlines a bunch this week, with Metal Gear Survive launching just yesterday. To celebrate, we recently took a look back at Metal Gear Rising, which celebrated its fifth anniversary this week.

In the meantime, Campbell's reading is another through the looking glass moment in what has already been a profoundly strange 2018. It seems like every passing year makes Hideo Kojima seem that much more weirdly prescient.
