Gran Turismo 5 commercial – Click above to watch video after the jump

We're still anxiously waiting for Sony and Polyphony Digital to yank the Gran Turismo 5 rug out from under us one more time. We know that the game is due out on November 24, but the dynamic duo of delays have cried wolf so many times before, we can't help but be jaded. Still, Sony has just turned out a new commercial for the game, complete with the company's "VP of More Awesome," Kevin Butler.

The sight of a full-fledged ad campaign does a good bit to assuage our worries about another delay. After all, Sony wouldn't go through the trouble of actually airing something like this if it were just going to burn us again, right? Right?

Follow the jump to see for yourself.

      i think i've watched this ad 1/2 a dozen times today, got to be my favorite commercial of 2010. Butler's got great timing... i love the "Kevin Butler is a professional driver on a closed course" disclaimer at the end too ;)

      i don't get the excitement about this game, it doesn't look very good and the simulation is poor.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Go away Forza fanboy.

        LOL... the game doesn't "look very good". Yet so far from what we've seen it's the best looking racer, possibly game to date.

        I guess people wouldn't get the excitement either if they didn't know a thing about the game. That it's a car lover's porno with all the cars, tracks, track editor, visuals, audio, online, GTTV, "car club/track days", Kart racing, Rally Racing, Nascar, etc....

        Some people just hate, HATE, that this game is a PS3 exclusive...

        Great ad as usual... I can't believe the game is finally coming out.

      This is awesome, especially his laugh and "Mr. Butler is a professional driver on a closed course. Do not attempt."
