The Rivalry Continues: Kevin Butler vs Joe Mauer | PS3Blog.net

The Kevin Butler ads are still going strong. This new one pits Kevin Butler with Joe Mauer again, but this time, they’re playing a friendly game of MLB 11: The Show. It looks like Kevin Butler’s cockiness got the best of him this time. Well played, Mauer.

    Hmm… funny… but I think KB should still be winning big time… I mean he’s the new Chuck Norris

  • Very Well Said Oly

  • Muahhahaha that was good.

    pre-ordered the game with my B day money. Looking forward to it. This is the best marketing campaign ever

  • DJ Paul

    I wish I knew how to play baseball
    I bought MLB 10 the show but there were too many baseball terms that I couldn’t understand

    Still, if you understand them this game is for you
    The whole graphics and gameplay makes this game the best sports game out there I’d say

    Hopefully they stick to it as long as possible, and don’t allow it to succumb to its own success and have the comedy run dry in them. It is definitely the best ad campaign Sony has ever had, though, the earlier Ally Bank ads with the kids were equally funny, if only because of the kids’ reactions lol.

    Yeah, I feel you there DJ Paul, but, that’s just a learning curve, which is even easier if you watch baseball like myself.

    I downloaded the MLB 11 demo, can’t wait to check it out. Very intrigued to check out the dual analog control scheme, although a little skeptical.

    The way I see it, the comedy has a lot of content to work with, since they’re mainly connected to the games being launched, so I’d say there’s potential to go strong for a loooong time.

    @Pedro: Only if Sony doesn’t get KB to be too cocky, we should be able to see this ad campaign last at least through the rest of the PS3’s life. I think the only other ad campaign Sony had that lasted a long time like that was their Crash Bandicoot mascot ads with the guy in the Crash costume and megaphone back in the PS1 days

  • Kevin Butler is the single greatest marketing pitchman ever.
