Im in Ontario and I like the fact that Kevin is trying to appeal to Canadian gamers. But it feels like in this video that he is trying too hard…

#46 Expose Self to Gamma Radiation
#47 Obtain Super Powers
#48 Use powers for good

I’m from Vancouver and I can honestly say I’m glad to have the Incredible Hulk as our neighbor. When the military chases you, feel free to hide in our vast wilderness any time.

P.S. Logan says g’day.

I’m a Canadian, and I loved it. KB for Prime Minister!!!!!!!!

This guy knows how to make commercials funny. I’ve seen him in all kinds of ads, and they’re all funny. His Playstation ads are stil the best though.

It’s such a shame the selection of Netflix in Canada is so completely terrible. I was excited for the service, used my free month, and cancelled the account. Thanks for trying, but if you’re going to do something, do it right. Better luck next time.

Kevin butler should take sum acting lessons from Bob & Doug McKenzie or Red Green.

Quebec does not have a worthy video store… I dont even look at it anymore. We get some new release every few and then… At least give is access to the ”other” canadian store…

sTaB_u_N_uR_i said:

Not to sound like i didnt like the ad, but its kind of pointless since weve had the store for months and months now.

This is like KB just doing an ad for uncharted 2.

Would have enjoyed it more if it came out when the video store did.

Also….nice boots.

This was almost insulting, and I loved every second of it.

I’m Canadian but live in the US and this was just full of awesomeness. the whole “G’Day” got a belly laugh from me. Kevin Butler FTW!

Keyeszx said:

If you look at some of the to do things on his list it shows previous commercials. Probably when the time comes he’ll expose himself to gamma radiation for a limited edition green PS3.

Some of the stuff on that list is really good. I’m sure they have their next VP commercial in there.

AdvanS13 said:

ofp rocks

hush404 said:

November 9th, 6:47 pm

lol. Tho… didn’t the store reach us in Canada a while ago? I think KB fell behind and pumped out a commercial a little late :P

Tho… I’ve never heard anyone say “G’Day”… I think that’s an Australian stereotype.

Keyeszx said:

November 9th, 7:06 pm

Kevin Butler is so awesome, he got platinum trophy on Uncharted 2 twice, at least it has two checks.

Watch out for his thumbs, he plans to register them as deadly weapons.

Bagpipe lessons, does Kevin’s epicness never end?

Charles_Surge said:

November 9th, 7:34 pm

Haha — love #53. Maybe someday that polar bear figure will be gone to reveal the rest of the list. Anyways, video content and regions…I can’t imagine the legal headache that must be, congrats to the Sony folks and Canada.

You can tell those are American pancakes.

Ours float above our plates an inch from being so light and fluffy.

cool_trainer said:

November 9th, 10:38 pm

I would love a KB dynamic theme. #51 on list

Shadowsquirrel said:

November 9th, 10:49 pm

If it was anyone else, other then KB it would have been offensive :o

MarinoBrea said:

November 9th, 11:07 pm

is it me or KB’s voice sounds like he’s got a cold?

Anyway, did they just show a game there I should be playing right now but I can’t ’cause some Euro-terrorists hijacked Polyphony Digital or something?

Creative_ae said:

I love you Kevin Butler and also i love PlayStation =D

I love PS3 and I love KB, but we got the video store months ago. And while we’re talking about it, the content sucks. We’re lucky if they add one or two new releases a week last time I checked. I quit checking cause the updates were terrible. Most weeks I couldn’t even tell if anything new had been added. I rented two HD movies and was pleased with the quality but after that I could never find anything new. Also, tell these studios to quit trying to charge $7 for some of these. $6 should be the max.

The movie itself was awesome and I love Kevin Butler. I’m a Canadian, and I found the movie to be hilarious. The only problem I have is the message. They’re trying to make it seem like they’re finally caring about us, but that’s not quite right. They did release one of the things that the US has had that we haven’t, but it is a poor imitation, and the tens of thousands of movies we supposedly have is a great exaggeration. And we are still having to wait for a lot things, old and new. If they really were treating Canada like the US, this preferential treatment should be completely stopped, and they shouldn’t be so proud of one accomplishment.

KB Dynamic Theme PLEASEEEEE!!!

Those are some yummy looking pancakes, Kevin.

Who else would like to see Kevin Butler Vs. Bob & Doug McKenzie in a beer chugging, Jell-O wrestling match?

people complain on here about the Netflix selection, well, folks, Sony has nothing to do with that… that’s all on Netflix… so go whine to them about their selection…. which i dont think is terrible.. combine that with Hulu+ and you dont need cable anymore..
if only the PS+ Plan included free rentals off the Sony Video Store, i would absolutely buy into the yearly deal…

Vu_Prime said:

November 10th, 7:03 am

I’m not from Canada but this commercial makes me WANT to be from Canada. How does Butler do it?

Noctai said:

November 10th, 7:17 am

What about your ”friends” in Europe? Seriously, we get the same awnser every week on the EU blog. (No date yet) There are more countries then just America, Sony…

Dracorius said:

Being Canadian, this brought a smile to my face. So Kevin, how do you fancy poutine?

Bulleteddy said:

I’m all for number 51! Kevin Butler dynamic theme!

subbed said:

Late but amusing. I think the KB character still works but while not mentioned here Marcus doesn’t. I would like to vote that the Marcus psp campaign be abandoned if it has not been already.
