It’s a totally unexpected spot that not only guarantees laughs but also prepares us for next week’s big release
We are less than ten days away from the release of God of War: Ragnarök. Despite this, PlayStation continues to promote the game everywhere – from campaigns with famous streamers to a small God of War: Ragnarök ad on TV. But, what PlayStation has done this week, has been a bit out of the ordinary, but a great way to advertise the new game from Santa Monica Studio.
In collaboration with Sony Interactive Entertainment, they released a humorous family therapy spot this week. Associated with Kratos’ father-son relationship with Atreus, we can see comedian Ben Stiller, legendary actor John Travolta, and superstar LeBron James together with their children in a very special therapy session.
A very unusual ad
This new commercial, as already mentioned, picks up the premise of the evolving relationship between Kratos and Atreus. It’s a father-son relationship that since the first title of the new revision of the series, we saw how it was evolving more and more for the better.
Although we don’t have Kratos and Atreus present in the spot, Ben Stiller has personified the god of war. Travolta and James try to improve their relationship with their teenage and young children with the help of Stiller. Comedy ensues.
This is a spot where we can see Travolta a bit lost and James being roasted by Stiller. Although it is a short spot, they have managed to get a good amount of laughs out of us. Plus, it’s a great way to kill time while you pre-load the game and wait for the release on November 9, 2022.
God of War: Ragnarök is coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 next week. You can pre-order it now on Amazon to get it on launch day.
