Harrison Ford is filmed playing Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception in a Japanese advert for the game.

The Uncharted series, which follows the globe-trotting adventures of Nathan Drake, is a thinly-veiled paean to Indiana Jones, the iconic movie archaeologist played by Ford through four movies.

Therefore, it is entirely fitting that the Japanese marketing people at Sony have cast the 70-year-old in such an advert.

Whilst Hollywood stars making commercials for Japanese television is a long running tradition - not to mention exceedingly easy way to make a bit of extra money - the actors and actresses are usually put through some embarassing situations, such as Sean Connery playing James Bond alongside a puppet rabbit, so it is nice to see Ford not having to embarass himself too much.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is released on PS3 on November 2.
