In a recent post below a New Zealand TV company “TV3″ recently ripped off a Sony Kevin Butler commercial.
The big guy himself, Kevin Butler, has responded, and of course in the usual comical KB fashion. Here were some of the sharp points:
1. No title for your guy? VP of Big Bigness? PS3 Commercial Tribute Manager? Details, folks.
2. The TV3 version was completely lacking in PS3 video game footage. Clips from Uncharted 2, MAG, God of War 3, or even clips of our upcoming releases Killzone3 and Twisted Metal would have really added some epicness to the spot.
3. The beard. I think it should have been longer.
4. I did like the slow motion effect at the end on the guitar solo. Way to plus it out.
5. Two-color mylar confetti > rainbow paper confetti. Just sayin.
At the end of his message is a thinly-veiled “we wont sue you this time”, which for the the giant company Sony is, may be a surprise for some.
