This post was supposed to be about MAG, the ambitiously-huge 256-player first-person shooter that came out today. But after watching the commercial for it, I realized I first needed to give props to the sardonic genius known as Kevin Butler. Generally, he’s the spokesperson you see in all of the PlayStation 3 commercials. Specifically, he is:

  • VP of Epic Footage
  • Chief Weaponoligist
  • Director of Rumor Confirmation
  • VP of Enough is Enough
  • Director of Game Accuracy
  • VP – First Person Shooter Relations
  • VP of Big Deal Making
  • VP – Blu-ray Superiority
  • VP – Big Action Moments
  • Family Activities Director
