    Do you remember this Kevin Butler guy from Sony? Yeah ,well, he was actually a double agent. He finally was able to come back to promote Nintendo,starting with the Wii. Unfortunately it seems he has been taken out by either Sony or Sony's minions, records erased just like this video and hasn't been heard of ever since.

    Please didn't take that serious. The real thing here is as the title says. If you want to keep this video alive, you may want to download it since videos are dieing off facing deletion.

    "Kevin Butler" is just a fictional character being played by an actor.
    You can't really "steal" an actor.

    Directors, on the other hand...

    Guys, when Kevin Butler says he is the VP of everything, he means everything.

    Probably the greatest marketing strategy idea in the world:

    Are you sure this video is being removed everywhere? I have been seeing this commercial a lot on television the last 3 weeks.

    There are multiple commercials. One with him, one without.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but how exactly is bridgestone a competitor of sony? It's not as if Nintendo created the commercial. Maybe they should've changed the wiimotes with move controllers and mario kart with little big planet karting. It's not like anyone would've noticed a difference.

    Because then Bridgestone would need to give away either Move controllers, LBP Karting, or PS3s.

    What I mean is that viewers wouldn't notice a difference between mario kart and little big planet karting 'cause they're essentially the same game. Adding a few things here and there doesn't change the fact that the idea was stolen from Nintendo. Sony stealing ideas = okay; someone stealing ideas from Sony = not okay. That seems to be the consensus anyway. How can anyone respect a company like that?
