Sony’s Kevin Butler Takes New Position as VP of Bridgestone Football Technology?

RipTen: It seems that Sony just couldn’t offer Mega-VP of Everything, Kevin Butler, enough money to keep him around.

If you were watching the Super Bowl commercials during the first half, you may have seen a Bridgestone commercial featuring Troy Aikman, Deion Sanders and… Kevin Butler? (Culture, Kevin Butler, PS3)

I see no reason why he can't be a VP at Bridgestone and PlayStation. He is the Vice President of everything after all...

Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1048d ago
He's done other commercials since working for Sony. Remember that Honey Nut cheerios commercial?
n4gisatroll  +   1048d ago
He was in bad teacher as well!
xVeZx  +   1048d ago
he was in everybody loves raymond before he was the VP
Snookies12  +   1048d ago
Agreed, yet this commercial is a travesty! Why the hell was Lord Kevin Butler only at the very end for like one second!? Guess that was all they could afford of his time...
Tzuno  +   1048d ago
Can you say Clown?
PaladinXII  +   1048d ago
Other titles he's held during his career:

VP of Line Leading (1st Grade)
VP of Taking out the Garbage (2nd - 8th Grades)
VP of Student Council (High School)
VP of Gamma Delta Iota Fraternity (College)
VP of Unpaid Interns (Graduate School)

The man is a born VP.
BlmThug  +   1048d ago
seems like he'll never be president of something :P
PaladinXII  +   1048d ago
Actually, he is the President of the American Association of VPs.
lsujester  +   1048d ago
Sort of, they don't technically have a president of the AAVP, the highest-ranking member is VP. So he's VP of the American Association of VPs.

Why you ask? Because all important people know you can't be a VP if you are a P. So to remain a VP, you can never by P. A P can also be a VP, but a VP can never be a P. Got it?

He's no Reggie.
Insomnia_84  +   1048d ago
DAMN! Reggie is f****** ugly! =s
Rainstorm81  +   1048d ago
LMAO....he looks extra creepy
RedDead  +   1048d ago
KB is a fictional character created solely as a marketing scheme...not really comparable to Reggie
Parapraxis  +   1048d ago
That's a good thing.
Nostradavis  +   1048d ago
He's the VP of awesome.

Im going to get a lot of disagrees for saying this, but I never found him funny.
Animals_as_Leaders  +   1048d ago
Most normal people don't worship advertisements, so you're doing alright. Much more so than your disagree-ers anyway.
Urrakia34  +   1048d ago
Finding a commercial funny is considered worship now?
Wenis  +   1048d ago
No Urrakia. But you must not visit N4G often if you think some people just find KB funny
Silly gameAr  +   1048d ago
@ Wenis

I'm not sure what other sites you visit, but the ones I go to consider KB pretty funny, well except the xbox-centric sites, which I'm sure that's were you feel right at home.
thedude44  +   1048d ago
i found him hilarious
IronFrogMan  +   1048d ago
Small doses is fine but too much of him can be annoying.
BX81  +   1048d ago
Hmm
Yeah I agree. I think he's lame for the most part but way better than the kid for the PSP joints.
Noticeably_FAT  +   1048d ago
I thought he was the VP of advertising games without actually showing game footage?

I found him kind of funny on the Fox show "Til Death" with Brad Garret. He was on the first season a few times and was a lot funnier there then he ever has been on the commercials I've seen him in.
KingSlayer  +   1048d ago
I like the Kinect commercials showing people in warehouse sized living rooms enjoying the snake-oil. Side splitting!

@Ravenor
Lulz. You think it's 1999 when "derp" was funny. Sports Champs is a fun game. Not as fun as that Kinect exclusive "Yell at your TV", but it'll do. Still, you saying "derp" is more side splitting than either. You Internet meme rebel you!

Derp, who said anything about Kinect here? Oh I get it, Noticeably Fat can be critical of things that perhaps you like so you follow him around and post something random and negative below him....great strategy.

Really enjoying that PS Move eh? I guess Sports Champions is a fun game.
refocusedman  +   1048d ago
Imho both move and kinect both suck, but at least MS is attempting to push "kinect" software instead of tacking it on to pre-existing games. "as my day one purchase move controller continues to collect more dust." (im sooo annoyed at that purchase)
Drake117  +   1048d ago
Funny a kid that says "Lulz" makes fun of some one for saying "derp".
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1048d ago
@refocus

If you think Move sucks, you haven't played Move.
SSKILLZ  +   1048d ago
I'm disappointed that Sony did not put up a PSVita add during the Superbowl
h311rais3r  +   1048d ago
Do u know how much that costs?
ZBlacktt  +   1048d ago
Sony has MORE then enough. Billions!
thedude44  +   1048d ago
nexus knight, sony uses that money to make exclusive games.
mac_sparrow  +   1048d ago
And I for one am rather glad they do.
gigreen  +   1048d ago
They focus more on the real football with their Champions League adds.
SquidBuck  +   1048d ago
He's just an actor. Sony doesn't own him, they own the name Kevin Butler.
mac_sparrow  +   1048d ago
Your comment is non biased and reasonable... but could'a used a little more cowbell
SquidBuck  +   1048d ago
Do you gotta fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell!?

So much for that ad campaign.
orange-skittle  +   1047d ago
Do you idiots understand that KEVIN BUTLER IS NOT REAL AND HE'S A FICTIONAL CHARACTER! You fools act as if he is VP of something. Jerry Lambert is just laughing at you fanboys and how gullible you are. Sony doesn't have the money for a 30 second Super Bowl spot remember. That's why they always drop the ball when it comes to marketing. They never seize the moment. All MS did was make people more aware of their hardware and what they are bringing to the table. They even had the console on Big Bang Theory sitting under the TV. Product placement is key nowadays.
