PlayStation’s VP of practically everything, Kevin Butler, was last seen tweeting early on during the PlayStation Network outage. But it’s been an entire month since the Sony mascot has made a peep… er… tweet. But now Butler is back!
It's about time the man showed up!
It was weird without him!
After last year's epic Sony Conference appearance, it wouldn't be an E3 without him!
Was that the 'gamer' speech? Found that sort of um...cheesy Hope he's there though, funny most of the time
his appearance was horrible. That "gamer" bs. First 2 min were fun when he was telling jokes, but rest of it ugh just trying to hard. why waste 10 minutes on this guy, just show us some game instead.
@TOO PAWNED He was only on stage for, like, three minutes.
Yes can't wait to see him.
E3 appearance please
Out of hiding I see! :-p
sadistic butler laugh from gt5 commercial
lol KB entering stage with Guy Fawkes mask on
That would be incredible!
I wish they used him in the UK. Our GT5 ad was shit compared to the US.
The SOCOM commercial. PSN was down. Ouch.
HE just tweeted again. http://twitter.com/#!/TheKe... Hints at Final Fantasy? OR just a joke?
Think it's a joke. http://www.thestranger.com/...
Can't wait to see him again on E3.
I'm getting tired of KB
I respect the fact that people like him but I've always thought he was corny. The guy does nothing for me, he's annoying rather than funny. PS3 games are bad arse on their own. They don't need him to advertise for them.
The intention is for him to be corny. He is a parody of PR men and advertising men.
I understand that. The point was that he isn't good at it.
Kevin Butler is amazing. I think he will manage to have a joke on with what happened to the PSN. I like the fact that he makes himself out to be one of these corny ad guys in his adverts which makes fun of them aswell :)
What is so amazing about him?? You make it sound like he ad-libs all of this stuff. It's all written for him, he just mouths it. I admit, some of the commercials are mildly funny but to make it sound like he is an every day comic that comes up with this stuff off the cuff is a little much.
Actually the guy that portrays him, Jerry Lambert, really does write most if not all of his own material. The man even studied improv and sketch comedy in case you didn't know. You should do a bit of research.
I need to research this why? Here, have an example: "The character was created by Deutsch/LA, the advertising agency responsible for the campaign. Deutsch/LA also manages Kevin Butler's Twitter account and wrote his E3 2010 speech" Dont get me wrong, the guy is most definately talented.
kb was hunting the hackers thats why he was away
I'm so glad he's back. I love KB and I really would like to see Jerry Lambert's career take off when this is all over. He's a great comedian.
Has anyone seen the "Everybody Loves Raymond" episodes that he was in? I was all excited when I saw him!

Kevin Butler's time has passed. Please don't bring him out.
I think he's funny. Sony needs some light-hearted humor.
Hell to the Yeah!!!
