Hideo Kojima’s influence reaches far and wide, but we can’t say we expected Death Stranding to be aped in a Brazilian perfume commercial. That’s exactly what appears to have happened in this O Boticário ad, however, as the kaiju from one of the title’s trailers towers over an immaculately scented actor.

The similarities between the two scenes make this look like an homage at best and an outright rip-off at worst, but it just goes to show the kind of impact the PlayStation 4 exclusive is already having on popular culture. Maybe the Metal Gear maker will be sent a crate of the cosmetic for his troubles – he tends to get free gifts off everyone else.
