Ubisoft's personalized stats videos are hilarious if you haven't spent much time playing Ubisoft games

You know how Facebook likes to put together a video montage of your photos from time to time? These videos can be severely underwhelming if you've only uploaded a few pictures over the years—like this one where a guy has the same picture of his crashed car highlighted over and over again in what was meant to be a heartwarming video about all the friends he's shared moments with.
