TV network blatantly clones Kevin Butler ad


Kevin Butler's next job title at PlayStation might be vp of retaliatory ass kicking, now that one of his Deutsch commercials has been shamelessly reproduced—in practically a carbon copy—by a New Zealand television network. Apparently New Zealand is unaware that ads can be uploaded to the Internet and watched in other parts of the world that might not look kindly on such an homage. See the original PlayStation spot below, and the TV3 ripoff below that. Two words: Un cool. Via Joystiq. UPDATE: @TheKevinButler weighs in on Twitter, saying, "Dear TV3: You could have at least put my photo on top of the amp. Sheesh."
