WATCH: Clash of Clans’ Super Bowl ad gets “Taken” by Liam Neeson

With Super Bowl weekend in full swing in the United States, a lot of juicy advertisements and spots are lined up to promote new and exciting stuff that’s coming this year to fans and viewers of the NFL’s annual championship gaming event. One of these ads turned out to be quite the surprise, and literally has “Taken” the interwebz by storm!

In what is literally a “came out of nowhere” moment for audiences worldwide, Finland based video game developer Supercell made a commercial to promote their popular freemium Massively Multiplayer Online Game “Clash Of Clans“, which has players building communities, training armies, and attacking one another for money and experience. The Super Bowl XLIX ad showcases an animated cinematic action sequence from the game, and soon zooms out of it to reveal someone playing the MMO using a mobile device and just being defeated by his opponent.

That man is none other than Taken Movies actor and Hollywood action star Liam Neeson… And you just have to see the ad for yourself for what he has to say after being beaten. He doesn’t take to kindly to it at all.

For a man who plays a man who has “a particular set of skills”, this is one guy you wish you hadn’t crossed at all… Even if it is a video game. Seriously – this is the guy who played characters who trained Obi-Wan Kenobi and Batman. Don’t piss off “AngryNeeson52” or there will be a reckoning, hehe.
