Skip the cutscene, get in a car and go to the Suburban store in Vinewood. Go inside, skip the cutscene and buy a gilet and shorts of any color. The necessary hangers in the store are marked with yellow dots on the radar.

Go outside and drive to the Lifeinvader offices. Park the car in the specified place and go up to the rear entrance.

Skip the cutscene and follow the programmer. Just before you sit down at the computer (before beginning of the cutscene), activate Michael’s special ability. It will not be obvious that it works, but this will really slow down time. To get the gold medal you need to close all popups and run the antivirus software in 32 seconds. Don’t try to start the antivirus before closing all the popups.

When you’ll finish with the computer, pay attention to the green dot on the radar. Go into the room where it is, skip the cutscene and go to the exit. If you exit through the same door through which you entered the building, it will be closer to run to the car.

Go to Michael’s house. Go into the living room, skip the cutscene and switch to the keynote by one-time pressing “Right”. Wait for Jay Norris to pull out the prototype phone and then give him a call. See up the broadcast to the end and the mission will be completed.


  • After completion of the mission, the stock market is unlocked after receiving Lester’s email. If you previously completed the random event “Bike Thief City 1”, then you will receive shares from Gray Nicholson.
  • The episode with the phone on the keynote is perhaps a reference to the similar episode in the “Law Abiding Citizen” movie.
