This week’s viral advert is a true celebration of the video game geek. Released by Sony Playstation the advert is entitled “Michael” and is part of their “Long Live Play” campaign – promoting the PS3.

They asked gamers to write in 30 words or less why they are the ultimate Playstation gamer and to attached a picture holding a PS3 controller. “Michael” is the final result.
