Ben Stiller is Kratos in hilarious God of War Ragnarok advert

Ben Stiller is Kratos in this hilarious God of War Ragnarok advert. Furthermore, Stiller is joined by John Travolta as well as LeBron James.

This God of War Ragnarok advert in question is all about the family connection. In particular the relationship between Kratos and Atreus. In fact, I think this advert is so much about “family”, it’s a shame that Vin Diesel never got in on the act.

Ben Stiller is the God of War (apparently)

In the advert, Ben Stiller plays Kratos from God of War, and he’s taking the role very seriously. Both John Travolta and LeBron James join Stiller with their children (Ella and Bronny respectively) and hash things out in group therapy. Mr Travolta gets quite emotional as he tries to channel his more sensitive inner Kratos.

Furthermore, it’s quite obvious that Sony would have paid a lot to get this star-studded cast and it seems that those involved are giving it their all. It’s certainly one of my favourite random video game adverts in recent times.

In our review of God of War (2018) for PC, we said: “God of War is a narrative gem. What it lacks in pacing and agency, it more than triumphs in writing, acting, and directing. What it results in is a deeply emotive story about familial relationships and the ties that bind us.
