Hugo Weaver returns as Agent Smith from ‘The Matrix’ in new GE commercial

This ad will air during Saturday Night Live featuring return of Agent Smith, so logic dictates it takes place inside The Matrix.

The ad was directed by David Gordon Green, of Pineapple Express and George Washington, not the Wachowskis – though they did give it their blessing.

Hugo Weaving played the villain in the Matrix trilogy with his iconic suit, glasses and rhythmic dialogue.

While it’s a little odd that GE would want a villainous computer virus known for enslaving the entire human race to promote their products, fans of the actor probably aren’t complaining too much right now. Another Matrix movie will probably never happen, seeing Agent Smith in any capacity is definitely a good thing for science fiction fans of the franchise.

The GE ad has been online since April 12. However, the commercial made its broadcast debut during the April 13 episode of Saturday Night Live.
