Liam Neeson may act like a total badass when he's in movies like ‘Taken’, but he's not above poking a little fun at his new tough guy persona. The actor appeared in a new Super Bowl commercial for Clash of Clans and delivered a monologue that sounds as if it were taken (no pun intended) from one of his shoot-em-up action movies.

Liam Neeson’s career can be divided into two distinct eras: Before ‘Taken’ (BT) and After ‘Taken.’ When that Luc Besson thriller became a surprise smash in 2008—earning more than $225 million worldwide against a $25 million budget—it launched a whole ‘Taken’ franchise (the third film, ‘Taken 3: Taken It to the Streets,’ opens today) and turned Neeson into one of Hollywood’s most improbable action heroes at the age of 55.

The former CIA operative turned full-time rescuer of his perpetually kidnapped family at the center of the ‘Taken’ series is famous for—as he put it to the men who took his daughter in the first film—a “particular set of skills” that make him “a nightmare” for bad guys.

‘Run All Night’ Trailer: Perpetual Action Hero Liam Neeson Takes on the Mob

Here’s the thing: Liam Neeson is basically starring in the same movies over and over. He’s a living action figure, where you just change his accessories and he can go from air marshall to former CIA agent to hitman, like the one he plays in the first trailer for ‘Run All Night.’ The basic Liam Neeson action figure comes with a leather jacket and a gun, but you can give him different badges, a cell phone, or upgrade his weapons and boom, it’s a whole new story. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but we should all acknowledge it. Go ahead. Try saying it out loud. Feels great.

Despite Sylvester Stallone’s valiant attempts to prove otherwise with 1987’s ‘Over the Top,’ arm wrestling is sort of hard to make exciting for spectators. On last night’s ‘Tonight Show,’ host Jimmy Fallon and guest Liam Neeson decided to give that whole "make this sorta sport fun for the people" thing a go. It got weird.

The 'Taken' films have been a blessing and a curse for star Liam Neeson. Sure, he's found great success in his newfound career as an aging action hero, but the days of Neeson being a completely respectable presence in prestige films seem to have come to an end. So the 'Taken 3' trailer fills us with mixed feelings. We'd love to see Neeson doing something else, but man, he sure is good at killing people.

It looks like the brains behind the marketing for ‘Taken 3' are keeping things pretty self-aware and silly in their latest preview for the film, which counts down protagonist Bryan Mills’ “12 Skills of Christmas.” There’s uppercuts, dead thugs, roundhouse kicks, face-smashing, and so much more in this delightfully wacky video, which celebrates Liam Neeson’s very particular set of skills.
