Kevin Butler Responds to TV3′s Commercial Clone


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.

      The guy said he found it on N4G, no need to get your pubic hairs in a bunch. Just calm down and laugh at it like everyone else on this site.

    I’m actually surprised Sony’s not suing them for this, but it’s probably better that they don’t. It makes Sony look better by just laughing it off and letting Kevin Butler joke about it.
    @Machee: And, no, I did’t search for this. I was on N4G and happened to see it. So, I emailed it to the editors and they posted it. Calm down, man.
