Coco’s body count

Drag queen Coco Peru in a hilarious ‘let’s play’ Grand Theft Auto V video

Drag legend, comedy master and now femme fatale: Coco Peru explains that her niece and nephew were recently playing Grand Theft Auto V, the most recent installment in the controversial video-game series. They were apparently having a grand old time at it, and Coco thought she’d check out what all the fuss is about.

Turns out even the gentlest queen has a homicidal bent in her.

The game takes place in Los Santos, a parodic stand-in for Los Angeles:

Coco: This is the location of that scene from Rebel Without a Cause, isn’t it? I was playing a game recently, and the answer was “Natalie Wood,” and there was a young guy. I said, “You don’t know who Natalie Wood is?” And he said, “From The Wizard of Oz?” Oh man, I wanted to smack the shit outta him.

Coco sees the sights and sounds of LS, which just may involve extended periods of gunfire.

Her verdict? The best part of the game is the ability to sucker-punch someone who’s tweeting.

Remind me to stay off social media around Coco Peru.
