Sony sues Jerry Lambert, AKA Kevin Butler

Quote:
The actor who plays Kevin Butler is being sued Ö by Sony!?!

10/6/12 9:40pm




You g1s might not be familiar with the name Jerry Lambert but Iím sure you know his Kevin Butler persona quite well and youíll be shocked to learn that heís currently in some water with the company he once pretended to lead.
Apparently on September 11, Sony Computer Entertainment of America filed a lawsuit against Butlerís, er I mean, Lambertís advertising firm Wildcat Creek and The Bridgestone Tires Company for violating Sonyís IP rights to Ö Kevin Butler.

Wait a second. Hold the phone. Lambert is being sued for appearing in a commercial? But heís an actor who specializes in commercials. Sony must have known that before hiring him and besides, heís appeared in several commercials for non-Sony products during his time as the companyís false executive. Heís even been in a few TV shows and movies over the years as well.

So why is Sony suing him now? Oh yeah, Bridgestone is being sued as well, so this must be due to the infamous Game On promotional ad, in which Lambert not only sold tires but also offered a choice between a $70 American Express gift card and a Nintendo Wii console. I guess this explains why all of the footage of ďKevin Butler playing the WiiĒ suddenly vanished from Youtube without a trace.

None of the parties involved in the lawsuit have commented on the situation, so itís unknown whether or not Lambert is still under some kind of contract with Sony that prevents him from playing some competing console while looking all Kevin Butler like Ö which is to look like himself.

No matter the outcome, I hope Lambert and Sony can put their differences aside and we can see Kevin Butler one last time. But for now, Iím going to feel sad and confused and unsure if I want to live on this planet anymore.

I hope this gets settled out. "Butler" is my favorite Posterboy ever.

I haven't seen any of the commercials, but if the character in the ads are basically the face of the brand, I can see why they'd be offended that he was advertising for a rival company.
