ModNation Racers Artist Spotlight: Kevin Butler…’Nuff said

235 24

Merry ModNation Monday Everyone!

This week the Spotlight hits the one and only Kevin Butler. You know a lot of things about our VP of …well…. EVERYTHING, but did you know he had an artsy side? It was news to everyone in the office too. (And all that time I thought he was taking notes.) Watch as Kevin get himself “Modified”, see his particular approach to Track Creation, and wait to see a showdown of EPIC proportions at the end. It’s the stuff of legend.

Like Kevin‘s Creations? Download them starting May 25th once your get your full copy of ModNation Racers (PS3).

Just search under PSN ID: ArtistSpotlight1

Don’t forget the ModNation PS3 Demo hits PSN tomorrow so I hope your engines are revved up!

I’ll leave you with my favorite screen shot to date-

  • JACK TRETTON! This ad is classic please make it available on PSN!

  • That was funny, great way to start a Monday.

  • Nice

  • I cry foul – there’s no way Kevin Butler lost that race legitimately. VP of Losing to Boss to Keep Job!

    If his mod will appear on ArtistSpotlight1, then here’s hoping the other artist spotlight creations will, too (like Empire City!)

  • brilliant

  • that was awesome…

  • That was BRILLIANT! :D

  • i’m surprised the graphics in this game aren’t as good as i hoped it would be.
    i highly doubt this game will sell as well as LBP did
    no matter how much DLC you throw at it
    funny to see Kevin vs Jack

  • Chuck, Will there be an Arctic theme?

  • Awesome… a great way to start the week.

  • Will they have KB custom character available to download in the game? Should be free for all. :) And should make the half man/horse kart.

  • At first I was not sure if I wanted this game but after watching this video I MUST HAVE IT.

  • A) This was great and again another great promo for the game.
    B) Man Furismo Jive sounds great. Can’t wait.
    C) All of the Kevin Butler ads need to get put on the PSN. I love watching these.
    D) Need E3 hosted by Tretton and Butler!!!

  • This is the best video on the Internet today.

    I grinned when I saw Jack Tretton. It’s confirmed, these two are compatible, put them on stage at E3!

  • That was priceless. I’m gonna have a lot of fun playing this game.

  • Waiting on GOTY edditon us LBP users got burned on that deal.

  • Absolutely hilarious,keep up the good work guys

  • Man, I love these ads. Jack Tretton also charismatic as usual, he’s been a great speaker at Sony’s past E3 conferences.

  • YeWest_is_da_man

    “Half-Man, Half-Horse… Half-Motorcycle… ALL awesome. Lol… sounds like something Will Ferrell or somebody would say. Hilarious! I really love the amount of support this game is getting as well. It might not be getting as much exposure -yet- on the tv, but it IS getting a lot of great videos, artistic support, as well as support from numerous companies run by Sony. Idky they waited until just now with this game to give it that much support, but I think they are starting to catch on.

    Keep up the great work guys and can’t wait to get my hands on this game!!

  • One of the best videos of all time! Sony and Kevin, keep this up! You guys rock so much :D

  • Hell of a way to start my day! Kevin AND Jack? Ahhh…that was marketing bliss right there!

  • See this is what games are all about for the noobies. It’s not about wining, it’s about having a pure blast with buddies online, tossing about a bit of users frendly smack talk. And expressing your self in new ways.

    PS3 FTW!

  • The most epic victory would have been if Kevin Butler was losing and then he handed the pad to Kazunori Yamauchi that would have blasted Jackie T.
    That and the world would have asploded.

  • Lol Too Much hair gel says what?

  • Kevin had better be the VP of MCing at sony’s E3 press conference =D

    anyways, awesome video, and i can’t wait to get my hands on the demo tomorrow.

  • That’s awesome! The two best PlayStation people in one amazing video!

  • Tretton Buttler 2012!

  • Tried to post from pc but it said log in? Which I was logged in. So I’m posting from my HTC Android Incredible cell phone and it posting perfect, crazy lol. Anyways love the vid it was to funny ;)

  • Why does this have to be so cool. Now I have to pick up this game.

  • LOL, I cant believe they had Jack Tretton in the ad, now that’s what I call fan service…. A message personally delivered by the CEO and the funniest man in the business history. LOVE IT!!

  • that was too cool

  • Was the scripted?

  • That was classic. You guys should really get this up on tv. I’m happy you guys found the perfect campaign.

  • lol!!! this way hilarious. damn i cant wait till tomorrow. i love sony. (sigh). oh those good times together. i really hope both of those mods are on psn store.

  • Can someone tell me who created this marketing campaign with Kevin Butler because him/her/they as well as Kevin himself deserve the entire The One Show advertising award book to be devoted entirely to them. lol It’s pure genius.

  • Hey Chuck, when’s the PS3 demo com… oh wait… sorry, habit.

  • A game that rhymes with Man Furismo Jive???? NOOOO! When are we ever gonna get Man Furismo Jive? argh…. Guess we’ll have to settle with GT5 then…

  • Yay KB! Only one more week, so excited! To bad I’m out of town and can’t play the demo that hits tomorrow until Sunday. :(

  • I love this campaign. KEVIN BUTLER FTW!!!

  • ZOMG! Jacky T!!!! hahahah this is the most epic video I have ever seen =D

    “VP of washing my car” lol

  • Most awesome commercial ever!


    Funny video but it made it even funnier seeing them wear all that makeup.

  • awesome

  • Pre-ordered today =D

  • LMFAO: “Quit the brown nosing Kevin, I’m not going easy on you” Stillshot- Jack Tretton, President, CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment

  • Yeah that video was way too funny lol. Kevin Butler and Jack Tretton talking smack over MNR….genius!

    Would be awesome as part of a TV ad imo

  • Man these two look like they can be working in ‘The Office’ lmaoo funny commercial, I loved it. Sony gives the business and the fun all at the same time. Man would I love to work with that company…
