Hilarious PS4 Commercial Shows How You Should Beg for Time Off Work to Play Bloodborne

on March 1, 2015 8:09 PM

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia just released a new PS4 commercial with Densha Otoko actor Takayuki Yamada, and it’s pretty hilarious, provided that you understand what it’s said.

Yamada-san basically plays himself, during a costume fitting session for a movie set in Ancient Rome. He begs the staff to give him some time off, despite the fact that they tell him that  it’s impossible due to the tight filming schedule. Then, at home, he’s using said hiatus to play Bloodborne, but he’s interrupted by a phone call.

At first he tries to lie his way out of the situation by pretending to be the answering machine, but the Cleric Beast attacks him and he can’t help but shouting “it’s huge!” exposing the whole ploy.

You can check the video below (alongside a second, which shows some Dragon Quest Heroes footage and a few promotional pictures), even if I wouldn’t advise trying this with your own boss.

This is the second commercial of the series. The first had Yamada-san trying to lie his way out of a job offer in order to play with his new PS4. Apparently, he didn’t manage to avoid it, but he wasn’t out of tricks yet.
