Now It’s Kevin Butler’s Turn to Salute Gamers

Deutsch LA launched the next phase of its well-received “Michael” campaign for Playstation that now stars none other than the game console’s brash pitchman, Kevin Butler. After paying homage this week to people with handles like @nychus, @motherboop and @legiondragon, Butler now honors someone named DirktheDaring (above). For the next 15 days (through 11/24), we can expect daily salutes from Butler and if you head over to the Playstation Facebook page, you can get a personalized “To Michael” clip sent to you. Perhaps someone was inspired by a certain, award-winning W+K campaign? Who knows, but gaming geeks, this one’s for you. Credits after the jump.
