Jerry Lambert, who played phony Sony exec Kevin Butler, has reached an agreement with Sony. The actor appeared in a Bridgestone ad, playing a rival game console, the Nintendo Wii.
Sony is suing Jerry Lambert, the actor who plays Kevin Butler for "creating confusion" and "causing damage" to its company. Kevin Butler is a fictional PlayStation exec who appears in a series of popular commercials. Last month, however, Lambert appeared in a Bridgestone tire commercial that featured the Nintendo Wii.
A couple weeks back, a tipster reminded me that Jerry Lambert, the actor who has portrayed "Vice President of Everything" Kevin Butler in the PlayStation ads for the past three years, once appeared in an ad for Bridgestone tires playing a Wii. It was quirky, but a little outdated.
Here's last night's split-second appearance by Jerry Lambert, the actor best known for playing mascot Kevin Butler. "Giddy-up now, Deion," Lambert says to legendary NFL cornerback Deion Sanders. Presumably later he tried to sell him a PS3. [Thanks, Rob!]
