    So Nintendo has partnered with Joel McHale (The Soup, Community) to bring us a new ad for the Nintendo 3DS. I'm not going to lie: it's pretty awesome.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0uBqg0Vo6A

    Seriously, whoever came up with that deserves at least a raise and a high five (preferably given at the same time). If they could bring the entirety of the Community cast in for another commercial, I admit that would be pretty tempting. So, Nintendo, are you up for it?

    Haha, it features semi-naked chicks, crotch kicking, bitch slapping and racism. Fun!

    Nintendo is so family-oriented, aren't they?

    Of course, now they're just shifting that orientation to a very specific part of the family.

    Meh, as "let's list commercial tropes without even bothering to make an actual commercial" ads go, this one is not one of my favourites.

    Thais partly redeems Ninty after the clear product placement in that Justin something video.

    I would have preferred actual racism to have occurred rather than mild xenophobia though.

    That was pretty good. Nintendo seems to be getting to their customers now.

    Decent.

    Too bad it isn't a real and aired 3DS commercial, Nintendo can't do one to save their life. All of their commercials are awful.

    Oh what so they focus on one type of audience and win in the market, and they're considered that? Go look at the consoles past man. You will see some racy ones too.

    Thanks...I now have a vision of thousands of 3DS owners using it to watch youtube video's of people getting kicked in their crotches.
