Resident Evil Villain Wesker Does the Old Spice Guy

Look down, now look back up. You're on a volcano, with the man your man could kill like.

It's no secret that we here at The Escapist love the Old Spice Guy commercials. A bunch of us love Resident Evil, too - which is why this video makes us laugh so much.

It's Resident Evil's Albert Wesker doing his own take on the Old Spice commercials, only instead of espousing the benefits of manly (yet refreshing) deodorant, he's trying to convince all of us to inject our bodies with the Uroboros strain. Oh sure Wesker, it might give us godlike powers, but it doesn't give us anything to protect us from rocket launcher strikes, does it?

The best part of this video is that it actually features the voice of D.C. Douglas, Wesker's real-life voice actor. So yeah, that's actually Wesker giving the spiel. It's pretty effective, in a way.

The video itself is a little over a month old, but it's just now making the rounds here - and I certainly hadn't seen it, which means it's still news to us!

(via Capcom Unity)

Damn, you guys took awhile to find that. :P You should probably mention the other one too.

EDIT: Should also mention that both of these videos are actually from D.C. Douglas' youtube channel, so they're really just him having fun with Wesker (and a few other things, but Wesker is on display here). :P

I just saw this for the first time. That is goddamn brilliant!
The fact that it's Wesker's actual voice actor doing it too, that just sells it.

Yeah, you'd think the Capcom Unity guys would have seen it earlier.

The jingle just totally sells that, good work to whoever did that.

FULL.OF.WIN.

Meh.... This meme is dead in the water.

Hilarious, too bad they killed him off. Here's hoping he is still part of the rebooted franchise. :)

OT: That's funny. Awesome that they got the actual voice actor to do it!

If you look really close and wish really hard the missles actualy miss his head and detonate behind him.

Just saying. ^^

Hell yeah, this makes Wesker even more awesome then he already was :)

that was pretty brilliant :) i mean, granted combining two of my favorite things (Old Spice commercials and Resident Evil) couldn't possibly fail to entertain me, but still!

That took a while Escapist, I watched this video for the first time just yesterday and just because of that video, I wanted to play RE5 again and I haven't played it since it launched for PC back in september '09.

"Look at yourself, now back to me, I'm eating rockets."

He does like to mess around for entertainment purposes doesn't he?
I think it's simply great that he took the time and effort to do all of that, even the small print is funny.

I hate to say things like "full of win".

...

This is full of win.

That's enough. No more. This meme is becoming overdone. The horse has been beaten within an inch, nay, a millimeter of its life. Give it a rest.
The lack of lip-sync doesn't help either. It's good, but not great.

Another of the many reasons I love D.C. Douglas. He's up there with David Hayter for actually cool game VAs.

I'm eating rockets
:P

oh god i love you resident evil! T_T

This is hilarious, an awesome video.

Good to see him taking his time to do something funny like this.

Look for the Ringtones video. Those are real funny too.

EDIT:
Here's the video:

Make sure you're not full because the HAM will be forced down your gullet.

Not that this isn't hilarious, but this article has a very unfortunately-worded title. :P

Yeah so I was expecting a different kind of video based on the article title...

And I only type this to avoid probation for pic only post... damn that was funny.

Funny video, but because of the title I expected a homosexual encounter between Wesker and the Old Spice guy.

EDIT:
Best Wesker video ever

It's official; The Old Spice Guy could take over the world. He could even eat rockets.

I was thinking something similar. And I'd just like to mention that if anyone feels like making some kind of erotic movie inspired by the title of this article then you have my full support and appreciation.

What? I'm just saying.

OT: saw this on Halolz a few days ago and thought it was just someone with a similar voice, I find it hilarious that the actual voice actor went above the norm to make something hilarious.

The best part of this video is that it actually features the voice of D.C. Douglas, Wesker's real-life voice actor. So yeah, that's actually Wesker giving the spiel. It's pretty effective, in a way.

oh heck yeah! I thought he was so cool even when he was kicking my butt repeatedly lolll

This video is nothing short of amazing. It needs to be nominated for a grammay, an oscar, a webbie and everything else.

This is fantastic. I've always thought that if I were a voice actor this is precisely the way that I'd kill time. By making some content for my character/characters. Well done Mr Douglas.

I'm reminded of this:

HAHAHAHAHA. That is amazing. I think one of my fantasies just came true, seeing Wesker do such a commercial like this. xD

I wonder if Leon uses this? ^^

Ha, I freaking love Old Spice parodies. What if Wesker's voice actor from THE ORIGINAL Resident Evil had done this? Or... Barry?
Although I do also enjoy the Cthulhu parody as well:


Mutated fish.

Thanks guys for giving me a laugh before sleeping. It may be late, but I didn't know about i.

I thought Wesker talked much more calmly and smoother?
