Sony Advertising Brings Kevin Butler of War III

Did you really think that Sony's marketing team wouldn't use the hilarious Kevin Butler series to promote God of War III [http://www.amazon.com/God-War-III-Playstation-3/dp/B000ZK9QCS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1278968473&sr=1-1]? Really?

Yada yada, Funk loves Kevin Butler, blah blah, would bear his children if laws of nature allowed for it, etc. In today's episode of the "Sony's Advertising Department Finally Got It Together Chronicles," the Sony rep - now promoted to Regional Manager of War (which is up there with Bandai's Chief Gundam Officer in terms of coolest job titles ever) - tries to help a young lady whose boyfriend is absorbed by Kratos' revenge-a-thon. Well, sort of. Okay, maybe he doesn't actually help her. A man of his stature is busy, you know!

Sony also revealed a new 15-second TV spot for GoW3 that, while doing a very good job at making the game look cool as all hell, is Kevin-Butler-less and therefore not worthy of comment. But we'll embed it below nonetheless, just for the hell of it.

Oh god. Kevin Butler is fantastic. He's ensured my purchase of a PS3...once I get a job.

Ah, the classic 'ignoring girlfriend over hot new videogame' scenario, will you ever age? The answer of course being no.

I don't even care about the games or the system this fellow is advertising, but damn are those ads ever funny. And since I don't actually watch TV live, I'd never see them if Funk wasn't a ridiculously massive fan, so I guess it's awesome that he is, heh.

I agree he is awesome. Him Little Big Planet, MAG, MGS and all those other ones have convinced me to get a ps3 though.
Ewww...I hate MGS. Ratchet and Clank, ftw!

Ah I love those Kevin Butler PS3 ads. It just never gets old.

And God of War 3 looks awesome as well.

I can't get the ad to load for some odd reason (well here anyways). The bottom ad loads up but not the Butler one. Nothing shows up where the video should be.

And can someone explain to me why they want age verification for a TV ad?

...Kevin Butler, regional manager of war. Anyone else remember when he just sleeping with our lives, and stealing our children? Talk about a promotion. And WHERE can I get one of those Kratos figurines for my desk?

We had to suffer a lot to get Kevin Butler. I mean, stereotypical squirrels anyone? However, the stuff he's done, he's pretty much made up for it. Not an easy task but he did it.

And wow, the Escapist Staff really loves Kevin Butler.

For those interested, he has a Facebook fan page. [http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/Kevin-Butler-from-Sonys-Ad-Campaigns/127235177739?ref=nf]

The wait is finally over. Kevin Butler, [HEADING=1]Regional Manager of War,[/HEADING] strikes gold yet again.
