Wii Sports Makes Appearance At Oscars

Today showed that Nintendo really does know no bounds, as along with John Stewart making his usual writers strike, Iraq and political references, he also was seen playing a game of Wii Sports on the huge screen that adorns the stage at the 80th Annual Academy Awards.

It is unknown if Nintendo paid for an advertising spot on the show, or if the game was just innocently used as yet another one Stewart’s jokes at popular culture, but regardless seeing him “panic” as he was “caught” playing the game after one of the many commercial breaks was somewhat entertaining! Along with that, a few of his other jokes were actually funny this time round, and he certainly helped make what seemed to be an overall boring show watchable.

Unfortunately, Nicole Kidman did not whip out her DS to improve her brain age – although that really would have been a step too far.
