Liam Neeson gets intense in Super Bowl 'Clan' clash

Technically Incorrect: The "Taken" star reprises his now famous role in order to threaten a fellow "Clash of Clans" gamer in the middle of a coffee shop.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.

You know he doesn't mean to be mean.

The world can just do that to you. However, when it does it to you, your meanness might be permanent.

So it was that during the Super Bowl, the mean Liam Neeson with whom Americans are familiar from the "Taken" movies was seen in a coffee shop. He was waiting for scone.

He was also seen holding a phone and saying: "I don't know you, BigBuffetBoy85, but if you think you can humiliate me and take my gold, think again."

I sense that BigBuffetBoy85 might not be up to defending himself against the world-weary warrior.

For, you will be stunned to hear, this is not another "Taken" movie -- though I hear they're in production for "Taken Eight" -- but an ad for "Clash of Clans."

While BigBuffetBoy85 no doubt released at least a few cold cuts, some cheese, a canape or two and a few unnecessary condiments back onto his phone, AngryNeeson52 was even more disturbed when the barista called him "Lie-am."

The barista quaked. Neeson prepared his barbarians and dragons.

Meanwhile some men in padding and helmets tried to act intimidating. They know nothing about it.
