David Hayter is the original voice of Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid franchise. He has finally reprised his role after being snubbed from appearing in Metal Gear Solid 5, much to the rage of many hardcore fans of the series.
Except this time it’s a bit different. David isn’t lending his vocal talents to a new game, but he did do the voice of Solid Snake for a Ford commercial. Yes, this is real life and this actually happened.

Update: Just noticed they did one of these for Captain Planet, too. BRB buying a Ford.
