Animal Crossing: City Folk Advertisement…Huh?

Ok, Nintendo’s advertising campaign on the Wii has been dull but it hasn’t really crossed into stupidity. The two Japanese gentlemen that would go to various houses across the world telling people, “Wii (We) Would Like To Play” had an endearing charm to it.

The latest Animal Crossing: City Folk ad that I saw on Monday Night Football last night isn’t about anything. It isn’t charming, it isn’t funny, it really does nothing to show off Animal Crossing: City Folk. It’s just there. Two gal pals talk about shells, and fireworks in a 30 second spot that vaguely shows off Wii Speak. How does that attract anyone to the game?

I will admit that I wouldn’t mind holding hands with either ladies and watching fireworks fall under a night sky.
