Ok... I just gotta say, NoA is so frickin' wrong for the Pikmin 2 commerical. Been watching G4TechTV all day because... well at least they have a news ticker threw some of the suck programs but I got my first look at the Pikmin 2 commerical.

Basicly, it's a bunch of "Little People" dressed as the different color Pikmin, running around saying hotdog over and over, finally they take a hotdog from a vender, take it back to this guy and he looks at the one holding the hot dog and says, I said with mustard, and the guy sitting next to him, not looking up from what he's reading says, Make that two...

I just gotta say, you have to see it, and BRILLIANT, because thats the first Nintendo game commerical (that I've seen) thats sticking with me. Kudos Nintendo.


Anybody seen it and have a take on it?

I seen it just today. It cracked me up to see all the small people running around doing whatever you tell them.

"Mustard..mustard..mustard."

Nintendo's recent commercials were great.

One of them turned me on to Kojima Mayumi, who is absolutely awesome.

I think they won an award for that commercial.

I've seen it, found it pretty funny myself. My friend has said that he has seen a Baten Kaitos commercial already, which would imply a release coming up pretty soon. Last time I heard the game was expected in December, and the earliest date I've found is November 14th. Either no site has kept up to date on it, or Nintendo has started marketing rather early. Yeah, it's a "Who are you?" styled commercial, so Nintendo is handling that it would seem.

They've been known to have some funny ads every now and again. Animal Crossing's ads were amusing and I'll always remember the original Smash Bros. ad.

After a little searching I found the orignal Smash Bros. commercial (it's an EU version though with no english, yet the song remains intact.) as well as the Melee ad. Melee's doesn't hold a candle to the original's though.

Wendy's Restaurants around the nation are starting a sweepstakes promotion to bring one lucky winner to Nintendo of America's offices.

Wendy's Restaurants have announced their Nintendo Super Family Sweepstakes, where one lucky customer will win a trip to Nintendo of America's Headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

With over 5,000 Nintendo-related prizes being a part of the promotion as well, gamers will certainly be lured by more than their appetites.

The promotion starts on Monday, September 6.

More details can be found at WendysFamilySweeps.com.

Is it just my warped mind or is one of the purple Pikmin/midgets punching some guy in the stomach before they get to the hot dog vendor?

I have to give nintendo props on there commercials. This one was hilarious and the Metroid Prime commercial where they used a real person was awesome.
