Batman Arkham Knight – Sony’s Japanese PS4 TV Commercial is Absolutely Hilarious
Sony is promoting Batman Arkham Knight in Japan with a hilarious new TV commercial.
The description and translation below was provided by DualShockers’ Giuseppe Nelva:
Popular actor Takayuki Yamada returns and this time he’s chatting with his manager at a restaurant. The manager asks him to go back to work. Yamada-san apologizes, and admits that he’s taking a break for a PS4 game. The manager asks whether it’s for Batman, and Yamada-san is surprised, asking how does he know.
The manager mentions that he obviously knows, because Yamada-san is wearing a Batman cosplay. After an exchange in which he’s encouraged to stop going overboard, Yamada san fervently describes why the game is awesome.
The manager tells him that he’s going too far with the cosplay, and Yamada San gets into “epic mode,” and says “This is not a cosplay. I am Batman!” the rest is history.
