“Taken” star Liam Neeson features in latest Clash of Clans ad
The Superbowl experience is about more than just the game itself, the ads playing during that timeframe have become just as big of deal for many out there. This year there were quite a few good ones, including a Clash of Clans advert starring Liam Neeson — the star best known for the Taken series (as well as Star Wars Episode I and many others). If you didn’t catch the ad, you can see it for yourself above.
The ad shows Neeson being defeated by “BigBuffetBoy85”, and from there Neeson breaks into a rage that seems straight out of the Taken series, promising swift revenge against BuffetBoy. The whole scene takes place in a coffee shop with a barista that apparently can’t pronounce Liam’s name right. Not a bad ad at all, though a very pricey one for developer SuperCell, considering 30 seconds of airtime during the championship game runs about $4.5 million, and the ad was a minute long.
Anyhow, enough words — go watch it. If you haven’t tried Clash of Clans for whatever reason, you can grab it through Google Play.
