Talk about the power of word-of-mouth marketing. Apparently American children have come to believe life is simply not worth without a Nintendo Wii. I actually contributed to this phenomenon by giving my nephew one for his Bar Mitzvah. I thought I was giving him yet another dumb gaming system; little did I know that it is nirvana in a box.
Here are 50 kids losing their bloody minds after receiving a Wii for Christmas. I can't help but feel sorry for the poor souls who didn't get one this year because their poor parents just couldn't afford it.
