Kevin Butler, the persona behind one of PlayStation?s rare successful advertising campaigns, has jumped ship and is advertising the Nintendo Wii.

After being absent from PlayStation ads all year, we knew it was likely the Kevin Butler ads had probably come to an end, but to see the VP of Everything playing on the Wii is all the more painful.

Jerry Lambert, the actor behind KB, started working for Bridgestone last February, but this ad marks the first time he has shown his love for another gaming platform holder.

Took me a minute to realise this wasn't a joke.

Wow has he gone down in life from being the only funny thing Sony have ever produced (not directly game related) to being a bit player in a boring Ninty ad, sad times.

Dear Sony,

Rehire this guy for the Playstation franchise as he actually was funny and didn't want to make me neck myself after watching that Wii ad.

sincerely,

The Internet.

How Sony could let this guy go is crazy to me, although as already pointed out, not really a Wii add, just a Bridgestone / Wii Cross Promotion ad.

But seriously, Sony should have signed him for at the very least the duration of the life cycle of the PS3. Sure, his ads would have eventually gotten played out, but he was not really at that point yet, and they could of at the very least just used still images of him for marketing, etc.

Although actually, I do think they do that, as I recall seeing a Kevin Butler sackboy for LBP Vita.

Rolling eyes at who? Nobody made that sentiment. The comments are disbelief that Sony let him go!

That's what you get for advertising tyres.

Let this be a lesson for all of you.
