Video Nominee: Category: Ass Kicking Moms

This is the first official US commerical for the Wii, Nintendo’s newest console.  If you haven’t heard of it, just stop reading and go back to your cave game of candyland.

Anyone notice that two white parents are playing this?  It’s like, we can’t get Xbox or PS3 fanboys, so let’s get mom.  I wonder if the first Wii related injury is an out of shape “old person” pulling something or a kid whipping that controller at their younger sibling?  Raise your hand if you have ever thrown a controller in frustration?  Tell us the story, I’m sure it’s good.

    OHMYGOD!!! That is the nerdiest thing I have ever seen! Who is going to buy that crap - dweeb families who think the games on the cool platforms are too violent…

    So…now that the Wii is out, and I have seen it and read about it I am not laughing anymore.

    It is brilliant. They are going after women/girls the “50%” of the marketshare that doesn’t traditionally play video games. Smart.

    I have already heard a few women say they would play a Wii.
