What’s it like to get a Nintendo Wii for Christmas?

***PLEASE don’t show this video to my children.***

Nick Smith of pwnordie.com had the inspiration to hunt through youtube to visit the living rooms of 50 gleeful/tearful/wild/choked-up children to see each of them ripping open a new Nintendo Wii. “Oh My Gosh!”

Watching this video provoked a host of emotions, but I won’t comment further.  I’ll let Nick’s video speak for itself.

    i particularly liked the kid wearing the AIG tee shirt. I guess the bailout money came thru for him.

  2. Erich Vieth says:

    hUH?: I agree.

    Hey, kid. That Wii belongs to the TAXPAYERS. Hooray for us taxpayers!!!

    And DON'T invite this guy over to show you how to use a Wii. http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/831b3e46e7/guy-b

  4. Are you guys falling for this Nintendo Wii commercial?

  5. Erich Vieth says:

    Projektleiterin: You are absolutely wrong. This is not a commercial. These are excerpts from publicly posted YouTubes that were stitched together by Nick Smith, a friend of mine who designed this blog (you can see his name at the bottom of every screen). He posted it at his new site, pwnordie.com. This is not a commercial, though I admit that it could function as one. For me, it is a field study.

    And now, for a change of pace . . .

    Thanks to youtube, humanity in all of its glory.

  7. A field study for what? Whether his intention was to create a commercial for Nintendo or not, it has the touch and feel of a commercial and if he offered it to Nintendo they probably would like to use it as a commercial.
