    References to real products have never been this obvious before...they've changed...

    Well, maybe if you're young and under a rock...
    Product-parodies (which is what it is) has been around, and very obvious, for ages.
    Not to mention the hundreds of Simpsons episodes that parody a product, person, event, movie, you name it.

    S'always been obvious.

    I've always understood them, and they often are obvious (like the recent MyPod, plus a lot of other parodies), but in the old days the references were humourously obvious; now they're just painfully obvious.

    ProtoKun7 is dead-on correct, this was no parody. C'MOOOOOOOOOOON, PARODY, that's a fucking laugh. The entire plot had nothing to do with Homer's lotto story (there are almost always some crossovers of the stories in other episodes,) Lisa sees an old person enjoying the wii, Lisa gets others to enjoy the wii, they are all sad when the wii is broken. So what is being mocked ? Older people for enjoying the wii ? The wii not being dishwasher safe ? Thus, it's an obvious infomercial. If you think Nintendo DIDN'T pay The Simpsons producers for this, you are delusional.

    I'm not suprised, the newer episodes usually do parodies of stuff like iPods and Wiis while I'd hardly ever see it in the older episodes.

    Watch the south park episodes go god go 1 and go god go 2
    There the Wii even has it'S real name
    Trey Parker and Matt stone (the creators of south park) both got a Wii for free,because of that episode.
    You can watch it on southparkstudios.com
