David Hayter Reprises His Role as Solid Snake… In a Ford Advert



/ 3 years ago

MGS Codec Ford Advert

Ever since it was announced that Kiefer Sutherland would be taking over as Snake for Metal Gear Solid V, fans have been hoping that David Hayter would be allowed to return to the role. Now fans wishes have been granted, but perhaps not in the way the hoped or expected.

Hayter certainly seems to be getting back into playing the role of Solid Snake since MGS V, with just days ago, the fan project The Fan Legacy: Metal Gear Solid, revealing that Hayter would be recording original voice lines as Snake for the VR experience. In this new advert released by Ford, we see Solid Snake and Colonel Campbell discussing the merits of the Ford Focus SE, with the Colonel telling Snake that it is “the perfect vehicle to drive around Shadow Moses Island.”

A second advert in the set sees a rehash of the Psycho Mantis conversation from Metal Gear Solid where instead of the player’s memory card, Mantis reads Snakes thoughts about his desire for a Ford Fusion Titanium.

How fans will react to these returns of Snake is unknown, as while some may appreciate the nostalgia brought on by the MGS-style codec calls, it is likely that many see it as a shameful misuse of their beloved franchise by Konami. As for Hayter, he has been promoting the adverts himself on Twitter, declaring that “Snake is back.” Kojima has yet to release any kind of comment regarding the videos, though considering his departure from Konami and MGS being his franchise, it is easy to assume he wouldn’t be happy.
