Sony is suing Jerry Lambert, the actor who plays Kevin Butler for “creating confusion” and “causing damage” to its company. Kevin Butler is a fictional PlayStation exec who appears in a series of popular commercials. Last month, however, Lambert appeared in a Bridgestone tyre commercial that featured the Nintendo Wii.
Here’s last night’s split-second appearance by Jerry Lambert, the actor best known for playing mascot Kevin Butler. “Giddy-up now, Deion,” Butler says to legendary NFL cornerback Deion Sanders. Presumably later he tried to sell him a PS3. [Thanks Rob!]
Highly entertaining but fake PlayStation executive Kevin Butler was notably (and understandably) quiet during Sony’s recent PlayStation Network downtime. But like the PlayStation Store, the cocky PlayStation mouthpiece has returned, showing that Sony is willing to laugh again.
