Official "Michael Ad" Teaser Thread

[ Edited ]
13 replies 563 views Edited Oct 22, 2012

The original Michael ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdWkKKSckNk

 

Behind-the-scenes image of the filming of the Michael ad confirming that Cloud was originally going to make an appearance: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3348214528/nm1295887

 

Since we've seen two teasers two days in a row, I have a theory that a new one will be released each day until the 23rd (that means two more).  So here's a thread with all we know and have speculated so far.  I hope that we can have all of our ideas and excitement in one place without new threads popping up every time a new video comes.

 

The Reload: 


 

This tweet pretty much confirms that the original Michael ad was a teaser for PSASBR

0:05 - Sign on desk saying "Saru! Get You!" = The name of Ape Escape in Japan

0:05 - Postcard from Limbo City on desk = DmC reference

0:05 - Gun in hand = Possible MGS reference?

0:10 - Blue electricity = Cole MacGrath from inFamous?

 

The Arrival: 

 

0:04 - Lombax language on typewriter = Jak and Daxter reference

0:05 - White cat under car = Possible Toro reference?

0:06 - When translated, the letter reads "Dear Copernicus, we have received your letter and regret to inform you, Captain..." = Reference to Captain Qwark of R&C

0:10 - Precursor languange on license plate = Jak and Daxter reference (The license plate reads "Morgan" which is the name of the black lab previously owned by ND cofounder Jason Rubin)

0:11 - Heavenly Sword hanging over desk = Obvious Nariko reference

0:19 - Nathan Drake in car = Obvious Uncharted reference

 

The Aftermath: 

 

0:02 - Sly Cooper's cane on the wall to the left

0:04 - Skull-shaped key = Possible MediEvil/Sir Dan reference?

0:05 - Boko tattooed on foot = Boko/Boco is the name of a recurring chocobo in the Final Fantasy series

0:06 - Sir Dan's sword against wall = Obvious MediEvil reference

0:09 - Pink cake and ice cream on floor = Fat Princess and Sweet Tooth reference

0:13 - Sweet Tooth's blade = Obvious Twisted Metal reference

 

 I can't wait to see what Tuesday the 23rd brings!  Any other references I may have missed?

I'm saying that I'll be updating this with every new hint people find in the videos and when new videos are released.  It's meant to clean up the forums from multiple threads being created about the same topic

The type writer language is actually from Ratchet & Clank. It may be prudent to put the entire translation as well. It's probably nothing but it may be relevent in the future.
You're right about the license plate. It says Morgan. A reference to Naughty Dog's pet who came to the studios practically every day from the early pre-crash games right up until he died during Jak 2.

 

Good idea for a thread in my opinion. Keep everything organised and easy to look up. Better than having to scroll through every thread for every video in order to make sure you've spotted everything.

I agree, it'll be good tomorrow if there's another video.

I translated the typewriter message, which reads "Dear Copernicus, We have received your letter and regret to inform you Captain"

 

Rejection letter to Qwark. Just another hint at this being about All Stars, and a nice touch by SB

It's just going to lead up to a new commercial just like the Michael trailer.

Yeah I think quite a few people translated it. I still think it should go in though. Pretty good reference.
