Konami recently launched the 2012 edition of its popular Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) videogame behind a series of character-driven Web videos created by Ignited USA and directed by Tool's Jason Zada. Working closely with the creatives at Ignited, Zada helped give life to Robert Roberto Roberto, a legendary (and fictional) soccer referee whose zealous respect for the game permeates his home and colors his outlook on all areas of life.

Developed with the tremendous ideas of Ignited USA, the 13 videos are the centerpiece of Konami's PES 2012 website, and they are an exploration of the comedy that unfolds when Robert Roberto Roberto steps off the pitch and into the chaotic real world.
