I think hes an actor trying to get jobs acting.
the dude is spokesperson for the playstation brand, and on top of that still getting paid for nationally aired bridgestone commercials. he is doing a great job and making a mint.


Based on Sony's advertising lately *cough vita cough* they are clearly cheap and not doing so well in that department. Probably why he tried to move over to other commercials....
i bet you it's cause they blew their load on this

This is one of those things I would love to know the story behind--how did Sony react? was it really fan reaction that motivated this or were they independently working to get this removed on their own? Did Bridgestone change the ad on their own?

This also seems like a good time for the Kevin Butler twitter to announce KB's evil twin, Devon Butler, has been out consorting with the less-awesome consoles, but don't be fooled! etc.

or we can just paste over him with a larger gentleman and pretend it never happened, I guess.

Such a waste of money. Thought so then and still do now. Would have been better using actual footage of the games over a good song or music and been more successful. They're trying to get people to buy a PS3. Yet they do nothing practical in that to even do that.

sorry, had to bump:

Sony are suing for this! Not only are they suing Bridgestone for the commercial, they're also suing Wildcat Creek, Inc.

Who are they? Well, evidently they're the advertising company hired by Bridgestone for the commercial. According to this their president is none other than Jerry Lambert.

Sony sues Kevin Butler lol

Wow are they taking this way too seriously ... I didn't know Sony had the money for frivolous lawsuits.

Oh wow. Seems they are going for trademark infringement. Based on those grounds it seems like Sony feels Jerry cant be in any other advertisements anymore because he is a Sony creation.
