Sony's Kevin Butler: Still Promoting PlayStation?

Sony’s incredibly popular spokesperson has apparently ‘left’ Sony’s lucrative VP postings to pursue leading his own company. Today via Twitter, Kevin Butler announced that “a man can only be made VP so many times; KB’s off to be PRESIDENT of my uncle’s new upstart company.”

Very odd. I wonder what Sony's up to with this.

Anon19742370d ago

I'm intrigued. It's obvious a new campaign for Sony going into the fall season, but what direction are they going? I have to say, I've never wondered before what direction a company was taking a particular ad campaign.

ksense2370d ago

surprised people are not guessing it already. he is going to start promoting ps vita (new upstart!)

adonis1832370d ago

He was on the movie Bad teacher

MAJ0R2370d ago

yup he's an actor and plays in movies and lots of other commercials, I think I even saw him on that drunk driving ad on N4G... at least I think that's him

RioKing2370d ago

He used to be on the US tv show scare tactics...that's where i first saw him.

RedHotChiliPepaSpray2370d ago (Edited 2370d ago )

He was also in my dreams last night ... :L ... I aspire to be Kevin Butler, Maybe he should start his own religion ... I'd convert.

ALL HAIL KEVIN BUTLER!

nintendo needed a new vp of glasses free 3d and he left to promote the 3ds.

he's rubbing elbows with reggie and iwatta and will make a big announcement at TGS. Something the JP culture will really dig.

j/k

So it begins... (Kevin Butlers quest for world domination)

This could be a good thing or a bad thing..Perhaps this is all a ploy to take down the famous Chuck Norris. One thing is for certain... sh** is about to go down! LOL

Agree or Disagree if you Agree or Disagree

HannibalBarca2370d ago

you could just put agree or disagree, or better yet not put that at all :)

DaTruth2370d ago

No, VP of world domination affairs! He will serve Hu Jintao well!

AntsPai2370d ago (Edited 2370d ago )

I completely read this wrong like 5 times :/

NAGNEWS2370d ago

Kevin Butler in a sony movie today Bad Teacher that means yes

miDnIghtEr2370d ago (Edited 2370d ago )

He knew it was a losing battle.. might as well jump ship now! ;)

He'll be back with Sony, everyone calm down.

showtimefolks2370d ago

newleaf2370d ago

Good. Annoyance more than anything lately...loved the gt5 ad though :)

donniebaseball2370d ago

I highly doubt he's done with Sony. If anything, that Twitter would probably be completely shut down if he left Sony. Remember, the KB name and persona is Sony's. This guy is just an actor hired to play the role.

xPhearR3dx2370d ago

His entire Twitter page has been changed. Speaks nothing of Sony anywhere.

LOGICWINS2370d ago

"Today’s announcement is still probably under Sony’s banner, but we’ve contacted Sony for more information on just what the former VP is up to.

So far, all we could get out of a spokesperson for SCEA was this: "Stay tuned. We'll have more info on KB's new upstart career shortly. In the meantime, keep following his tweets."

Yeah, he's still with Sony.

Drekken2370d ago

Oh wow... thanks for the laugh. One of the most annoying posters on N4G calling someone else an annoyance.

clearelite2370d ago (Edited 2370d ago )

Lol, I was thinking something along those lines. Also, I would love to see KB as a part of the new marketing campaign. He was one of the best things to come out of Playstation's marketing division in years.

Good point below(cpt)

Jihaad_cpt2370d ago

Kevin Butler was created by Sony his real name is Jerry Lambert, so anything that is related to Kevin Butler is Sony related.

Istanbull2370d ago

PEW PEW PEW, destroys all x fanboys lol!

Where is Ken Kutaragi, the father of PlayStation? We need him back!

LOL wii and kinnect got pwned! "Who wants to be running around like third graders pretending to be holding a gun? PEW! PEW!" Kevin butler ftw

tarbis2370d ago

No, please, don't bring him back. He's the very reason why the PS3 almost flopped due to his arrogance. He's a genius I admit but developers already have had enough development hell.

KonaBro2370d ago

What the hell are you talking about? O_o

tarbis2370d ago

I was replying to Istanbull's post about bringing Ken Katuragi back

kingdoms2370d ago (Edited 2370d ago )

LMAO with uncontrollable gut busting intensity. A jackass representing Sony's belligerent arrogance being humiliated out of the industry after Sony's plan backfired trying to troll Kinect out of the market is being destroyed?

Destroy? The jackass helped pew pew pew drop the bomb on Sony's PS3.

BOOM!!!

EDIT

"LOL wii and kinnect got pwned!"

In ***Make Believe*** maybe but not in the real world. Sony loves ***Make Believe*** this fits them well.

M-A-R-S-H-A-L-L2370d ago

...What are you rambling about...?

HATE5062369d ago

you seem pretty butthurt there brah

Parapraxis2368d ago (Edited 2368d ago )

"Is there a reason why you man children 360 fanboys seek out PS3 only news to troll in?

Go play your mediocre fluffware exclusives or just go outside and play. There are a lot of those American cartoons you can watch on your American god 360. "

^ The above quote is directly from kingdoms.
I just replaced PS3 with 360, and Japanese with American.

=)

You do realize this makes you a hypocrite right kingdoms?

Kevin Butler is a character created by Sony, he isn't going to ditch them, this is clearly a weird PR stunt.

Ethereal2370d ago

I was going to say....glad they have a new campaign coming up. Love KB. Best move Sony could have ever done bringing him along.
