Ford Unveils "Metal Gear Solid" Car Commercials

Ford have enlisted the help of the Playstation classic Metal Gear Solid to promote their line of cars!

For two slightly bizarre new commercials, Ford have appropriated footage from the games to advertise the advance features of the Ford Focus. In the first, Psycho Mantis reads Solid Snake's mind and finds out he wants a 2017 Ford Fusion Titanium, and in the second, Col. Roy Campbell Codec calls Solid Snake for a briefing of the utmost important - the 2016 Ford Focus:

A Meeting with Psycho Mantis | Ford Overdubs

Psycho Mantis knows you want a 2017 Ford Fusion Titanium. Why argue?

A Codec Call to Remember | Ford Overdubs

When the Colonel calls about the 2016 Ford Focus, you answer.

This isn't the first time Ford have used pop culture characters in its advertisements. Two months ago, Ford released adverts featuring redubbed Dragon Ball Z.

Ford's new commercials also feature the original MGS actors... which makes things even more confusing if you know the recent history of bridge burning between Konami, Hideo Kojima, and Solid Snake's voice actor David Hayter. Kojima hates Konami for treating him like garbage and then firing him, Hayter hates both Konami and Kojima for replacing him with Keifer Sutherland in MGS 5 (why change what works?!), and Konami seems to hates everybody and everything.

It's Wacky!

Fun House,
It's a whole lot of fun,
Prizes to be won!
It's a real crazy show where anything can go!
Fun House,
It's a quiz,
It's a race,
It's a real wacky place!
Use your body and your brain!
If you wanna play the game!

Dan Aykroyd Reveals '#Ghostbusters 3' is in the Works! | #Ghostbusters3 | #GhostbustersIII

Two years after the all-female reboot of the beloved 1980s franchise arrived, original star Dan Aykroyd is now promising that a true Ghostbusters 3, starring the three surviving OG ‘busters, is on its way. Many thought the death of Harold Ramis, who played Egon Spengler, in 2014 had put paid to a proper reunion, but Aykroyd’s comments suggest that we can look forward to him teaming up with Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson in the near future.

While speaking on The Big Interview With Dan Rather, the man fans know as Dr. Ray Stantz, the heart of the Ghostbusters agreed with Rather’s wording that he was talking about making a “full-blown third Ghostbusters,” with an unknown writer already currently working on the script. Obviously, Aykroyd wouldn’t let on to anything about story details, but he did tease that it’ll try and recapture what worked so well about the original films while giving it a “21st century” twist.

“I think we got a story that’s gonna work. It’s being written by a really goo…
